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?

I couldn't help but hear the Spongebob Squarepants character Squidworth's pretentious "*I* listen to public radio" in my head when reading your comment. You clearly understood that the overplaying of pop music was related to commercial radio else you wouldn't have made such a point of differentiating.. but hey, whatever helps you sleep at night..

OK, I guess that explains a lot.
Sorry that you find listening to public radio pretentious. Wait, no I'm not.

I don't find listening to public radio pretentious at all but I do find your need to mention it when you clearly understood the reference regarding commercial radio highly pretentious.

I'm willing to listen though. Why was my comment about English cuisine so offensive to you as to justify this many replies to what was a passing humerous use? You may very well have a reason for taking such offense and I'm willing to listen. Why do you take a generalized reference to a known joke about English cuisine so personally?
