Multimedia, AV A couple of days ago we talked about how the RIAA and NAB are planning on asking US Congress to mandate FM radio chips inside every cell phone. This plan was met with some ridicule, so the NAB decided to write a blog post addressing the critics. Most of the post is overshadowed by an overdose of America's favourite national pastime: WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE. 9/11!

Government should not be in the business of Mandating features that "consumers deserve".

That was the essence of the NAB argument, with slight detourt to make a lovely strawman attack on public safety text messages, a service that doesn't exist.
