I figured it was in reference to: 
"While the documentation for the Nokia 770 indicates that clicking on a the 
link to a station in the web browser will make that station available from 
the Internet radio player, that has not been the case for me. I've had to 
access them via the audio player."

As far as 'proper' capture, I don't see why streamripper wouldn't work out 
of the box (ISTR it has a CLI mode) and one of the gtk frontends should port 
fairly easily.  With the small memory card though.... (fwiw I'm gonna come 
down with many of the other reviewers on "why RS-mmc!?!" -- its the only 
device in my colletion that uses it. Out of 2 mmc-using phones, the zaurus, 
etc.. its the only one. :( ..)
