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!

+1. FM is an extremely poor technological choice in case of an emergency, especially when FM is coupled with modern cellphone technology that a/requires earphones that most people lose within the first month after purchase in order to receive FM and b/generally doesn't last more than 2 days on battery power, except using some power management trick that most people don't know or think about.
