Okay fine, I am going to "out"myself as an old fogie, I guess, but I too 
find it cumbersome to listen on a smart-phone. I know this is a 
generational thing, and I am certainly able to use my smart-phone for a 
wide range of tasks including making calls. But hooking up a speaker and 
plugging the phone into a charger is so much more time-consuming than 
just turning on the radio or listening via the audio-stream on my 
computer. The Herald is trying to attract younger listeners with an 
internet station, but will older listeners (who are the main consumers 
of angry talk radio) find it convenient to use their smart-phones to 
listen? Most of the research I've seen says there's a real generation 
gap in who uses phones (be they iPhones or Androids) to listen to music 
and news.
