DAR.fm Adds Downloading To Mobile, PCs
San Diego-based DAR.fm, one of the newest startups being run by prolific entrepreneur Michael Robertson, told its users today that it is now allowing users to download recording from the site to mobile devices and PCs. DAR.fm said that users can automatically schedule a time to download recordings to their iPad, iPhhone, Android, Blackberry, or iPod and MP3 players using the service. DAR.fm allows users to record and download Internet radio stations for playback at any time; the service says it now has over 5,000 stations and 16,000 shows available for download. DAR.fm is Michael Robertson's latest attempt to upend the entertainment industry; he was the founder of MP3.com, and has a long line of startups focused on sharing music and audio digitally with others. His site, MP3Tunes, offers up a music locker service for storing digital files, and also has a deal with DAR.fm to store recordings from the site.
