Thanko's Raremondo is 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 3980 yen (about $49) at Thanko's website. [Thanko via Dvice]
