Vastly greater penetration of streaming audio services.  Essentially
everyone under the age of 40 now has a device capable of streaming
audio (or playing back their own prerecorded audio files).  Many
people have several.

I don't know, and neither do you, since the research hasn't been
done.  I would certainly expect people in San Francisco or New York to
behave differently from people in Houston in any number of ways.

Still didn't actually do an experiment, so there's no way to make any
sort of causal claims.
