I am looking for some feedback on what devices our members use to consume content. This will help in future consideration of how content is displayed on Times Past. Do you use iPod's, iPads, portable mp3 players, cell phones, computer, media boxes like Google TV, Roku, Apple TV and so on?
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I use my desktop and a SansaFuse mp3 player. Hope this helps.
I've tried various personal MP3 players, but it doesn't really work for me -- I refuse to buy an iPod because of those ridiculous earphones. So most of my OTR listening is sitting next to my laptop, or while driving (these days I'm always listening to "The Archers" in the car because their 15-minute episodes are perfect for short trips). Sometimes I'll listen to something on the bedside CD player, but I usually go to sleep before the end of the show in that situation.
I use Winamp on the computer and MP3's on a CD in the Explorer when I'm driving to work. What I really would like to do is broadcast MP3's to an old zenith radio that I had, but gave back to my Dad when I moved a while back. Would be great to sit in the dark and listen to.
I use a Sony MP3 player plugged into my car while driving or with earphones when in a public place. I use the PC sound system to listen at home.
Mostly my mp3 player. In the car I would burn a couple of shows to re-writable CD's. My drive to work is about a half hour so it's just the right length comming and going. My wife has recently bought me a kindle fire. So I can stream OTR and NTR radio through that. Plus there is a free OTR app that downloads radio shows.
For audio I use a MP3 player, and video believe it or not I use my PSP.
I listen on my iPod, either sitting on my porch and at night when I go to bed (many shows I have to re-listen because I don't make it all the way through). I have another iPod that I can hook up in my car when when I'm driving long distances. Just this week, I was driving back to Houston from the Rio Grand Valley and listened to several Jack Benny programs.
Early on when I first began listening to OTR, I burned programs to a cd.
I use my ipod. I drive between 600 and 1,000 miles per week, so I spend a lot of time in my car. I have a radio with an ipod hookup in my car. It is very convenient, and it holds a ton of OTR on it. I only have about 1,500 songs, and the rest of the ipod is filled with OTR, Audiobooks, and Doctor Who stories by Big Finish. If I am at home, then I listen through itunes on my computer.
I do all my listening at home.
If I'm in the room where my desktop is then I'll listen on the desktop. If it's anywhere else in the house then I'll copy the files from my desktop to a USB stick and plug it into my laptop and listen that way.
I listen on whatever is available. If i am in the computer room I listen either on one of the 2 desktop computers or the portable mp3 player with portable speakers. I refuse to buy an ipod because they just cost too much for someone like me who regularly drops things. I have 2 mp3 players. I pick another one up every time I find one with replaceable batteries. I hate having to recharge the thing when i can carry an extra AA battery in my pocket for when it stops running. I am also addicted to the mp3 format as everything i have in audio either was collected in the mp3 format or converted to it. I listen on full size headphones for better sound. I have a tv device that plays mp3s as well as most every video format but i use the hard drive space on it for foreign TV shows and Movies. I hope this helps, ------------------------------------------ Rick
MP3 player (Yepp YP-T6) for cycling to/from work and outside; Desktop & Laptop at work/home (using VLC to play); Roberts CRD 40 (SD card/CD/DAB ) for night-time. Mainly MP3 or M4A files (get_iplayer produces M4A).
I use iPod Classic, laptop, streaming audio, cell phone, and dvds that have otr shows burned to them. I hardly ever listen to the car radio anymore.
