Multimedia, AV You know, I really like America and its citizens. Beautiful country, lovely people, nothing but good experiences on my end. However, like everyone else, the US has its problems, and one particular annoying one is the power of lobby and interests groups. I couldn't believe my eyes when I read that the RIAA and NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) are asking Congress to mandate FM chips in all portable devices - cell phones, mp3 players, PDAs, everything. Wait, what?

every device _could_ have an FM receiver, unlike this other brilliant piece of proposed legislation:

my big problem is all the radio I like to listen to is on the AM band ... its hard to find a device that has an AM receiver ... maybe I should start lobbying
