With a great flourish, the powers-that-be behind the NextRadio app have announced that this week shall begin a thunderous effort to enlist one constituency so far utterly lacking in enthusiasm for NextRadio's product: Consumers.And so begins an onslaught of over-the-air radio spots designed to lead consumers to download an app that will not work on most of their phones, meanwhile attempting to incite rage that the "choppy, buffered streaming radio" that wireless companies "want you to pay for" is no substitute for comparatively crystal-clear FM radio, even though the content being consumed … [Read more...]
