I think that about sums up the music industry entirely.

There's definitely something to be said for the DJ aspect of how music is 
consumed.  I've got upwards of 10k tracks of music and innumerable gadgets 
suitable for playing it back to me.  Yet I find the sat radio channels in 
the car to be the least annoying way to listen.  Trying to fiddle with my 
own playlists (made openly hostile on iPod devices) is too annoying. 
So-called genius features aren't.  Better to have a DJ do the work, maybe 
add a little patter and just get on with listening.

The same pretty much applies for the home.  Listening through the TV has 
little, if any, traction.  I've got a whole house system (russound) and find 
sat radio again being the most useful 99% of the time.
