At CES 2010, U.K.-based Pure is launching its line of attractive Web-connected digital radios, which include integration with Facebook and Twitter as well as Pure's own content portal. Pure's Sensia (pictured) features a touch screen interface and elicited many gasps of covetous desire from passersby. At $349, the Sensia's not cheap, but its design makes it a fit in just about any home entertainment environment.
Sigh. Remember when clock radios were primitive devices that people only interacted with when waking up, or when throwing them across the room? Those days are clearly over.
