Nobex Radio Companion 

I’m pretty excited about this one. I’m a big fan of Nobel Radio Companion, ever since I reviewed it a couple of years ago. With Nobex, you have access to over 6000 stations in the US, Canada, UK and around the world. You can even see playlists for over 2700 of those radio stations as well. Additional features include:

  • Get Songs with a single click, right from your mobile device. Or, receive an email with links to buy the song on your PC, so you can always keep your music collection fresh!
  • See Lyrics of any song. Ever heard a song on the radio and wished you knew what the words were? Now you can see the lyrics of the song that is playing or was recently played. The lyrics can even scroll in sync with the song!
  • Read Song and Artist Info about the artist who sings your favourite song. Using the “Lyrics and More” screen, you can now see Artist and Song info too.
  • Hear Song Snippets if you're not sure if the song you just missed is the one you have wanted to download.

The folks at Nobex have provided 10 – 1 year subscriptions to Nobex Radio Companion. That’s saving you $3.99 a month! All you have to do, lil doggies, is a leave a comment to be entered.

If you actually buy a ringtone maker, you're a dingus.

All you need is Audacity (free, http://bit.ly/cL08jz) and their mp3 encoder (also free, http://bit.ly/aUVvw2).

There ya go, a free way to make ringtones for Blackberry.
