Thanko's Raremono Is the USB Shortwave Radio You've Been... Waiting For?

The Raremono's a shortwave radio that connects to your computer via USB, which is a dream come true for a niche audience. But wait! There are also some goodies for the non-shortwave enthusiasts among us.

The device also receives AM/FM signals and lets you record any audio (shortwave or AM/FM) as an MP3 or WAV file. It's compatible with Vista or XP, requires a software download, and is on sale now for about $45 at Thanko's website. [Thanko via Dvice]
