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!

Why do non-Americans find it necessary to comment (and not generally favorably) on purely American issues?


Because Americans find it necessary to comment (and generally not favorably) on issues in every other country?

I agree with you though, air raid sirens is obviously only usefull in urban areas. Plus, sirens does not actually inform you what is wrong, only that something is wrong. You'd still have to find a way to listen to a radio or watch a TV so even in this case it could be an advantage to have a radio in your phone.
