Very stupid.  The idea is to mandate that all cell phones, Ipods etc. broadcast FM radio.  Not in the public interest at all.  I'd like the option to be able to buy a cheaper cell phone with no FM radio, as there is almost 0% chance I would ever listen to radio on my cell phone.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

Why does this need to be mandatory?  I have devices with FM radios on them, and I never use the radio part.  Hell, I bought an MP3 player so I wouldn't have to listen to the radio, all because they were ruining bands for me by overplaying them.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
