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?

About government meddling in way too many areas. They seem to be hell bent on controlling every aspect of our lives. Orwell anyone?

On a side note, If they have to interfere, couldn't they AT LEAST mandate HD Radio?

Why mandate HD Radio? There's nothing HD about it.
