@nathan118 Yes. I work in an office, regularly in meetings and conventions, I can't listen to music during office hours. Only time I listen to music is on the way to work and home. So, Yeah, to each his own.

damn those auto corrects. "loyalty stories" = locally stored. "removable data connection" = reliable data connection.

@nathan118 As a matter of fact, yes. Well, right now I only have 5 FLACs album on my phone (only album I listen to the most, e.g. Dark Side of The Moon, Steel Panther's Feel The Steel, Led Zeppelin's Early & Latter Years, Alice Cooper's Trash, and Van Halen's Best of Both Worlds), the rest are 320kbps MP3s singles, not albums. I'd rather hear a selection of high quality music than the shrill sounds of streamed audio.

Four reasons: 1. Audio quality. Streamed music is not as good as loyalty stories FLAC files. The necessity of this became more appearant if you have a headphone that cost more than $100. 2. Battery life. Streaming kills battery. Especially on the Nexus 4. 3. Data cap. Streaming requires data plan. With tiered data on the rise, we couldn't afford unnessesary usage of data when locally stored music works perfectly. 4. Data connection. What happens if you're on a subway, airplane, or somewhere you can't have removable data connection? So much for your streaming argument.
