Thanks. We'll have to agree to disagree on #1 (), as it depends on the feed. Some of them it's totally fine, but others it's very unusable. For instance, my local newspaper here in SF has a RSS feed and the titles are not "finished" in time, I always have to click into the article to actually read the full headline to see if I even want to read the article. They post ~30 articles a day, this gets really old really fast (the clicking in).

Regarding #3, some of us really love OTA podcasts; they download on your device on their own and ready to go, no PC (and the associated manual time) needed. There are tons of daily podcasts like language learning where it's great to just run out the door for the bus, knowing the lesson you want to listen to is already on your phone.
