The Internet Radio, 1969! ... MarkHillPublishing.com -- "... Nobody knows exactly when the word ‘internet’ was first used, or who coined it, but it appears to have been from 1883 onwards, when it was used as an adjective or verb to describe interconnected motions. It was seemingly first used as a noun in 1977, when demonstrations of the early ARPAD and SATNET networks were held by pioneers Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn. It wasn’t commonly used by the likes of you and I until the late-1990s, nearly a decade after Tim Berners-Lee developed the thing it actually indicates.

So, this makes this radio one of the very first proper and public uses of the word internet, and one that predates the development of world-changing thing itself!
As we sat over a warming glass of red wine, the Banker and I mused over whether the (now long-gone) radio company who imported it ever trademarked or copyrighted the word. After all, it’s in their name ‘Internet Radio Product Ltd’ too. Can you imagine if they did, and if one could buy the rights to the name? Of course, it’s a ridiculous thought and quite unenforceable, but it’s somewhat amusing!

But, looking again, there’s even more connection with today’s internet age. The cream case, flat upright format, rounded corners, and ‘screen’-like black tuning display all recall Jonathan Ive’s now legendary design for the iPod. The Internet radio even has white earphones! I’m not accusing Ive of copying it of course, but the resemblance is striking and I wonder if these mid-century portable transistor radios (which often look alike) were an influence on his design. ..."

The Queen Is Dead

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry 
And talk about precious things 
Like love and law and poverty 
Oh, these are the things that kill me... 

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry 
And talk about precious things 
But the rain that flattens my hair...
Oh, these are the things that kill me.
