This contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Heather.

Radioshift 1.5 brings support for thousands of web streams previously only available via web players, including some of the world’s most popular stations. The built-in Radio Guide makes it a snap to subscribe to programs with a single click. Radioshift then runs in the background, recording and saving audio automatically. Over 100,000 programs and stations from around the world are right at your fingertips with the built-in Radio Guide. And with Radioshift, streams from many different audio formats are all accessible in one convenient player, including the Windows Media, QuickTime, MP3 and RealAudio formats!


To enter: Since Radioshift is all about time shifting, leave us a comment telling us If you had the ability to travel through time, what would you do? (Yeah yeah, we’d all kill Hitler, but what next?) Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope).

  1. Invent the wheel myself; it has to be square!

  2. Jeremy says:

    I’d visit the future to see if we survive, if world peace will be accomplished and to see amazing technology that I’l never see in my lifetime. Also, to find out if we make it into space and colonize other planets.

  3. michael Bristol says:

    I would pull a Back to the Future II and bet on all the winning sports events and become stinking rich 😛

  4. flo says:

    I would go back to good old times without technic and internet, a time I never saw…

  5. Paul says:

    I’d go back in time, about 27 years ago, when I told my parents to pound sand and that I wasn’t going to college. Too bad I waited 13 years to find out that was the most stupid thing I could have done!

  6. Leif Johnson says:

    I would go to the future and see how the apes are doing running the planet…

  7. MacMarine says:

    Go back to warn of 9/11

  8. Carlo says:

    copyright fire!

  9. Gerry Brown says:

    I’d go back to the future.

  10. Dan says:

    Looks like you can go back and forth an unlimited number of times, and we might as well throw in there being able to go anywhere, so…

    Here’s the photography nut’s answer:
    Step 1: Go to future days and steal the best camera capture and post-processing rig. Who needs money when you can timeshift whenever you want?
    Step 2 & ff: Photography every historically significant event from beginning of the Bible onwards (we’ll see about “BS”)- gotta avoid that I’m-my-own-grandpa future shift stuff, ya know?
    Step 3 & ff; Get my stuff posted/shown in every museum/text book/treatise/etc. and have my name listed and annotated under every copy
    Step 4: Sit back and enjoy being the most famous photographer in “history.”

  11. Ben Tattersley says:

    I’d tell steve not to remove expresscard from the unibody macbook pros

  12. Scott Bernard says:

    I would un-lose the love of my life.

  13. dan says:

    go back and tell my middle school self that girls really aren’t all that scary.

  14. Steven says:

    I would get together all the information on stock history from the past 20 years, then give that to myself in the past. Then transfer all my money to gold coins and swim in it like Scrooge McDuck.

  15. Ted says:

    Go back and meet Albert Einstein.

  16. Steve says:

    I would invent transparent aluminum.

  17. Seth says:

    Go to the summer of ’88 and make a copy of the notes from the one conversation I ever had with my father about his experiences in World War II that I can no longer find.

  18. Steven Thompson says:

    i’d go back a couple years, not slack off in university, buy lots of apple shares and fix my love life

  19. Daniel says:

    Well, with out details…. there are two young ladies in my past that I would love
    to relive certain moments with again and again. 😀

  20. Scott says:

    i would go to the end of Jan to see what the new apple slate/tablet/whatever is

  21. John Daugherty says:

    Meet Jesus before and after the “resurrection” and stop Lincoln’s assassination. One just answers the “did he really live” question and the other would be interesting to see what happened next.

  22. ronny says:

    go back to the 50s to shag Marilyn Monroe and tie up Betty Page.

  23. biblezombie says:

    buy Apple on the ground floor. Then meet my wife much sooner so that we have more time together.

  24. Go back to 1969, and buy a brand new Dodge Charger off the showroom floor. I’d bring it right back to now and store it. Win myself every car show in an hour radius.

  25. plopi says:

    Of course, going back in the 70s and see all my favourite bands. (And, take a note about lottery numbers).

  26. k19s says:

    Lottery numbers

    Hope I win.


  27. Wade Smith says:

    I’ve always wanted to be there with the first cave painters. The human animal hasn’t changed that much in these 40K years, so that moment, of art and need, would be a real trip.

  28. Jim says:

    Travel to the future to see if interstellar travel really happens.

  29. Keith Smith says:

    I’m one of those that believes actively mucking with the past will automatically invalidate what you’re trying to accomplish – taking back lottery numbers and purchasing a ticket a couple of days ago will mean the lottery drawing will result in new numbers. Nature’s way of keeping us honest. That being said, I’d just read that back in 2004 when the BBC was ramping up to bring DOCTOR WHO back onto television, the producers were planning on negotiating with the folks at Paramount to film a crossover episode with STAR TREK ENTERPRISE, which sadly ended that year and thus the idea never stood a chance. I wonder what you’d have to do to pull that one off, real-life TARDIS or no.

  30. mpeterke says:

    I woukd jump forward a few days, when my beloved car gets back from the service…

  31. Smith says:

    I would map to see where oil is found now, in the United States. I would then go, find the oil back in the late 1800s and make a fortune and become the next rockefeller

  32. crommatrixx says:

    Go back in time to fix what made me turn out to be such an incredible SOB. So, that things would be easier for me in life and not so much a struggle.

  33. Jim D says:

    Lottery Numbers would be the easiest thing to take back and make a profit.

  34. Matthew Smith says:

    Get married to my wife earlier, get my current job earlier. I’m happy, but it took me too long to figure things out!

  35. Aris says:

    3.000 years b.c.!!!!!! You thinks humans could fly then?????

  36. Jesper says:

    I would go back in time and help people not doing stupid things… Like à helping angel..,

  37. Gonzalo says:

    bets bets bets!

  38. Caleb says:

    I’d rock the future and slowly change things for the betterment of… well everything.

  39. Eduardo says:

    Go back and save Tesla’s documents and build them right now so everyone could have free energy.

  40. Petar says:

    Go back 2 years and not go to my wedding 🙂

  41. Dick Nick says:

    I go on tour with the Dead in 1977

  42. Henry says:

    I would finally be able to drive around in my flying car.

  43. Mykel says:

    I’d go back to the SIXTIES and enjoy!!!!

  44. Christophear says:

    must probably go back a few months ago and be honest with the two girls I was dating about the existence of the other one

  45. Bigbn says:

    There’s a couple lottery drawings I wouldn’t mind winning, but I’d rather go forward and see where technology takes us, plus I want to get the truth on the Apple Tablet / iSlate

  46. Bob says:

    If I lose “The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” I would go back 7 days and try again.

  47. i-man says:

    I’d go back to the start of college, work harder and have a lot more fun, and buy as much Apple stock as possible in 1998 when I got my first Mac.

  48. I wouldn’t go back in time. I wouldn’t go to the future either. Change one thing in the past and you could change the future and not only someone elses but your own and I don’t want to give up anything I have now.

  49. Stephen says:

    Go back to 1984 and do it all differently. Very different.

  50. Telp says:

    Freshman year id change a couple things around…
