What Steve Jobs did for public radio
There's been a lot of talk about all the industries that Steve Jobs changed over the course of his long career.
Well here's another: public radio.
After all, if it weren't for Steve Jobs -- and the iPod -- there would never have been a podcast.
That was change enough.
Now you can hop on your iPhone -- or iPad or iPod touch -- at any time of day, virtually anywhere in the world, and stream live programs or public radio stations.
I used to say that as long as Americans were addicted to driving, public radio would be OK because so many of you listen in your cars.
Now I say public radio will be OK as long as Americans are addicted to driving, and to all the devices that Steve Jobs gave us.
