Better Than Radio



1. Get one of these: Roku 
2. Go here: Amazon

I found out today that Amazon made a Roku channel just to stream my Amazon cloud into my home theater system. Hot damn! So many Gigabytes of greatness. The Roku blog tells me that actually this came out in December so I'm behind the curve. I have been remiss.

But in all seriousness this is what radio is competing with. The cloud increasingly is connected to my stereo, my cell phone, my PC, my laptop, my TV and truly the car remains radio's last battle ground. But there are already Bluetooth solutions that bridge that gap. How long will that island remain separate from the other media platforms?
