And it's debateable if it constitutes a "misuse" to listen to netcasts. I
bet you could find some company silly enough to let actual radios stay, but
block out netcasting sites. Now wouldn't THAT be irony? Also, in some jobs,
I dare say that you have happier workers when they can have their favorite
station-program playing while they work.
