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!

RE[3]: Why?

Really? I just don't see that. I don't comment, no one I "hang" with does either.

You don't get anywhere near the same amount of news coverage about Europe that Europeans get about America. If you did, you probably would comment more - especially if you started seeing news items that make you think "what a bunch of ignorant hicks" (which is more or less the impression we get from the news).

The funny thing is, absurd federal mandates like "all cell phones must have FM radios" is just the sort of nonsense the EU occasionally pushes through.
