I have not listened to radio in years. I play music and podcast I enjoy when I what them. It is almost amusing to listen to them now in a store or a party and hear ads and idiot radio jocks.

Some of the radio shows I did like I only listen to the podcasts when I want. Hamish and Andy is one of them I will play for a laugh.

Totally agree. With device storage going up and up. There is no point to having to run a data connection to the cloud to play music. Battery power alone makes the point.

The cloud makes sense for syncing but streaming is wasteful for things like music where you will play the same song many times.

That is because we have dinosaurs as options with old systems. How about some company make a secure OS so we can all forget dos and OS 9 and even unix.

At this point users need security not speed. PC's are faster than any average user needs. They're full of holes but that stupidity lets anyone in.

And i'm not talking about a company taking control of peoples devices to keep them save...Make a safe OS everyone can use thats open.
