I'm in my mid thirties. The last time I listened to the radio for more than sixty seconds was when I was in high school. Do a lot of people still listen to the radio? Are these people who have never heard of MP3s? How hard is it to press play on a pod instead of a radio?

I think your complaint is invalid. The simile to Apple's current market strategy is strong and compelling:

Today Apple builds the handheld computer-pod, offers an app store including support for in-app purchases, and takes a huge cut of all proceeds.

Tomorrow Apple builds a car, offers an app store including a per-mile insurance app which draws funds from your App Store balance, and takes a huge cut of all the proceeds.

That's perfectly cromulent.
