Streamripper is an open-source (GPL) plug-in for Winamp that connects to streaming MP3 servers such as Shoutcast and records the tracks to your hard drive as individual files. With the emergence of file-sharing protocols such as Napster and Gnutella, the average Internet user can download nearly any MP3 file quickly and easily. Streamripper, however, allows you to download an entire station of music from the Internet. After installation this plug-in can be activated in the preferences menu of your Winamp player.
Why the global supermarket giant is venturing into gaming systems is a bit of a mystery, but the computers -- built around Intel Core 5 processors and Nvidia's GeForce graphics -- are surprisingly robust for their 950-pound price tag.
