Holy Smoke!

Bet you can't guess what topped of the list of the British public's top 10 innovations when polled by Cahoot!...The BBC reveals all.

The Bug

No, not the one which is causing problems for New Yorkers. This is the digital radio designed by Wayne Hemingway (or Red or Dead). The neat thing about it is that it allows you to pause or rewind the radio just like you can with a PVR (like Sky+). You can also download CD (well, CD-like) quality recorded tracks onto an SD card for playing on your MP3 player. And it's legal (at least for now until the loophole is closed)- because the radio station has already paid for the rights to air the track.
