I get a little tired of the blogger and columnist cliché that [insert disruptive technology here] will kill off [insert legacy technology here], but if you can get past that, Mike Elgan makes some excellent points about the superior "radioness" of the iPhone (I have one), especially with the many radio-centric or radio-like apps available in Apples app store. He writes:
On the other hand, satellite radio is primarily a vehicular listening activity and the iPhone is primarily a two-handed machine. If you think talking on your cell phone is unsafe, try finding a channel on your iPhone app or restarting the stream when you need to. But it's just a matter of time -- and not much time in the geological time of radio -- before IP radios are built into dashboards and designed for eyes-on-the-road one-handed adjustments.
