4. Except for the CB, Weather channels, and police/fire scanner frequencies

It is still stunning how much power is in a cell phone though!

7. I dunno about the CB stuff, but...

there are apps for weather channels and fire/police channel scanning.
The 3-way speaker w/ the 15" woofer, though....my phone still has to be plugged into some kind of amp or bluetoothed to some kind of amp connected to a 3-way speaker with a 15" woofer to sound that good. That being said, those Radio Shack 3-way speakers were atrocious sounding, but relatively cheap.

8. Technically, your phone can not actually play cassette tapes.
