What about the fact that the Blaze doesn't support aac streaming like the 
Stream?
What about the fact you can't subscribe to podcast feeds like you can on the 
Stream?

Well, i'm not sure if the emplimentation is better, rather simular
with a few extras, but at the end the blaze stil winds as everything
goes to the card. And as far as I know, you can take one station and
save it to the card and it will play it, you don't have to import
them, and furder more, you can use one pls file or whatever if you
wish, but on the stream you must have a playlist file containing those
files. You cannot just paste a playlist file with just the stream link
in it.
