77% of people who stream…

This was a factoid from a few days ago – 77% of Internet streaming is now going through cell phones. Tablets are another 15% or so. PC streaming is now in the single digits. Listening at work using the company network has totally vanished.

The PC is dead. Long live the Dick Tracy wristwatch.

    I must be an anachronism. I still stream via PC and listen at work. Call me an outlier I guess.

    Anyway, my smart phone battery is about 4 hours in constant use.

    Don’t own a smart phone, only use “dumb” cell phone. Stream via PC. Xfr to Bose via link to same.

    I work at home. I have a Droid Razr Max smart phone, but why would I want to listen to anything with the tinny mono speaker on the phone when my PC and laptop offer full-range stereo over a faster data connection? The exception is in my vehicle, where on long trips I connect my cell phone to the car speakers using a cassette insert and listen to internet podcasts or live stations of choice.

    Many corporate LANs now block streaming that originates outside the company network. A cell phone with earphones is a convenient way to listen to radio in the workplace without disturbing your coworkers (or your boss).

    I do 77% of my streaming on this device…. I actually have two in the house and have bought three more as gifts. I see see it is now available for half the price that I paid last time. It is battery powered and I carry it outside and into the bathroom when I am taking a shower. It is also my clock radio to wake me up in the morning.

    Buy a satellite dish for a dollar, get a free house:


    but beware of the government’s property taxes that enabled the deal in the first place
