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!

Well, Mr Wharton, the popularity of pornography is undisputed. People, whether male or female, like photographic and filmographic material of naked men, women, possibly engaging in the act of intercourse. People might have different tastes (for instance, some prefer filmographic material of two females kissing), but in the end, we all like some good ol' porn.

Does this mean US Congress should mandate porn on all cell phones?


(1) Is porn useful in case of a natural disaster?

(2) Is FM radio inherently objectionable to someone who owns a cell phone?

It can't be that hard to come up with a good analogy, but this is OSNews, where the editors check their brains at the door the moment something outrages them. Seems to me this site was half-intelligent once.

(And no, in the end, some of us don't like bad ol' porn.)
