iTrip Station Finder Released -- When Travis Butler reviewed Griffin Technology's iTrip, a $35 FM transmitter that works with the iPod to play music over any radio, he gave the device high marks for design and ingenuity, but noted that it was sometimes difficult to find a clear frequency, especially in urban areas (see "Taking an iTrip: Three FM Transmitters" in TidBITS-681). Last week Griffin released iTrip Station Finder, a free Mac OS X application containing a database of 254 cities in the U.S. and recommended frequencies to use in each. The iTrip is available for both the 2003 iPod models (which have a FireWire dock on the bottom of the device) and previous models with a FireWire port on top. [JLC]
