Quite simply, this app has the stream from every radio station, every talk show, everywhere. Unlike individual radio station apps where you only get one radio station's stream or iHeartRadio where you only get some radio stations...this has them all. Even stations you didn't realize were there, like HD2 side-channels, police band scanners, podcasts, and public and college campus stations. Search by radio station, format, host, team, or artist to find a the right station for you. If its streaming online, its streaming on TuneIn.

Free on iTunes and Google Play

Also free on your computer:  tunein.com

This is a board game that plays on the auto-complete function of many popular search engines. Sort of like Balderdash, the “dealer” reads aloud the first bit of a search query...the players write how they think Google, Yahoo or Bing will auto-complete the search field, then try to guess which of the submitted answers is correct.

For example: “Do the Kardashins...”.

Will the search engine auto-complete the query with “...give to charity”, “...wear hair extensions”, or “...have college degrees”?

$28 at QueryTheGame.com

or, invent your own and play for free on google, yahoo or bing.

Yesterday, cellphones across the county blared out the familiar Emergency Alert System tones, normally heard on your radio or television.  In June, 2012, the National Weather Service, FEMA and the FCC partnered with cellphone carriers to provide Wireless Emergency Alerts, direct to your mobile device.  Now, no matter where you are, you can be notified of an emergency.

The service comes standard on new phones and operting system updates, and has limited customizable features available.

If you're in iPhone user, tap the Settings icon, then the Notifications tab.

Android users, open the Emergency Alerts app and go to the Settings menu.

Alerts issued by the President can not be disabled, but you can decide whether or not to be notified of weather emergencies or Amber alerts.  For iOS users, it is either "on" or "off".  Andoid users can choose whether or not to receive the alerts and whether or not they are accompanied by those jarring alert tones.
