Waterproof and hand-cranked should be a feature of all modern electronics. Such is the case with Panasonic's new "RF-G77" AM/FM radio, which will still provide 213 hours of battery life with two AAs if you don't feel like cranking. For those of you that do, a good 1 minute crank will give about 30 minutes of playback time. Now really, would it be so hard for Apple to put a little crank on the next iPod?
