The Earth tends to bend RF of lower frequencies to it's will so it is line-of-sight only in theory.  Very low frequency has been used to communicate with submarines as given enough power, it can penetrate the earth and water and subs can actually receive it at immense distances while submerged.  The low frequencies AM uses propagate hundreds of km.  A bit higher in FQ and you have the short wave frequencies which bounce between the ionosphere and Earth to propagate...
I like having FM available on my phone.  Streaming is OK but it assumes you can get a mobile signal of WiFi, which, for all you city slickers, isn't always the case.  Just last Friday, my internet went down.  Turned out roadworks had cut a fiber trunk to the local exchange and the whole area was without phone service for a day.  At such times, FM can come in handy.
Like this? 
If you are used to buying things for the the US military.
That's rather what I have been thinking for some time.
Good question.  If there is no money to be made from Android phones, why are there so many companies making them?  Why haven't they all stopped and done something else? Cannacord seems to be the only company providing an analysis which attributes 93% of smartphone profits to Apple.  Given that there are so many companies making smartphones I find it rather odd that they would happily keep making losses, year after year.  Perhaps The manufacturers know something Cannacord...
 Greenpeace used to target Apple with criticisms, but that was mainly some years ago.  More lately, they seem to have been praising Apple quite a bit. http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/en/media-center/news-releases/Greenpeace-statement-on-Apple-California-solar-power-deal/  Greenpeace are a reprehensible mob, IMO.
 You would feel utterly at home in Ireland.  There are no straight roads.  Directions are often given in relation to pubs, which you are assumed to know of.  If you stopped somewhere and asked for directions to a place, you might get a response like "well now, for sure if I were wanting to get to X, I wouldn't be starting from here!" I use Nokia HERE based navigation solutions and have found the quality of their data to be excellent in the several countries I have used...
There were reports of increased frequency and severity, just not necessarily promulgated or endorsed by the IPCC, so anantksundaram was correct on that point. http://phys.org/news/2013-06-man-made-particles-affect-hurricane-frequency.htmlhttp://www.gfdl.noaa.gov/global-warming-and-hurricanes  All these hurricane related predictions seem predicated on the models for increased global warming being actually accurate.  Since none of the models predicted, or can account for,...
No, it does not make it worse - I meant that from Apple ]['s expressed point of view it would seem worse.  I don't see it as any different to any other form of paid advertising.
