how hard is it to get the software tuner to get FM radio working on a smartphone? it's not
so how come i know of no smartphone that offer it?
it can't be a tech decision, so it has to be a business decision
in which case, who is saying "no freaking FM radio on smartphones"? the manufacturers? the cell companies? the content cartels?
and depending on who is blocking it, why? what's the business logic?
and how come clear channel communications or whatever union of radio stations isn't screaming bloody murder about this status quo?
and i follow tech pretty closely. so how come i never see or hear any media coverage of this odd glaring oversight?
as for TV, i understand that QAM signals do not work for a receiver in motion
so my question is really just specific to FM radio (and AM too, why not?)
maybe the insightful is the thought of the effect of the sun cycles on our current situation, even if i was off a few years
so the upswing will come fast and furious any year now?
the classic "one event in the 1950s is the root of all evil and all other iranian history is besides the point and all iranian behavior today is because of this one event in the 1950s" play
how can one argue with such stunning intellect!
how did you know it was advances in wood nut and legume technology that led to such effective faking of the moon landing?
yes, it's completely nuts!
i'm so glad i've found a friend who understands the depth of conspiracy going on here
uh... you want me to do what again with your massive strawman?
the simple point is the warmongering is going on in iran just as much if not more so than the west. they chant "death to the usa" in massive demonstrations every year at least for over 30 years. they fund and supply terrorist groups and the assad regime. nevermind their OWN FUCKING PEOPLE rose up against them and they brutally murdered them in return. in ancient history? no, in 2009
this is how the regime in tehran treats its OWN PEOPLE:
and you want to talk to me about the west's warmongering?
was it a religious fundamentalist space moose?
because the warmongering is only on one side, and the iranian regime are peace loving hippies
no way are they chanting death to america in iran. no way are they helping the assad regime and other organizations in the middle east intent on killing civilians
clearly all malice exists on only one side here
is that what you are saying?
the past crimes of the usa does not excuse the current crimes of iran
keep playing the false equivalency game
but the only thing the silly game hurts is your own credibility
that doesn't prove anything. aliens put the reflector there
why don't you people understand the fascist shadow government is controlling your mind with this propaganda about a moon landing?
the goals for doing that are obvious
so what you are saying is global warming is already dampened, and we're already coming out of the dampening
shit we're in for some fucking scary hurricanes
sunspot activity indicates we're in for some global cooling
which will counteract the obvious global warming our CO2 output is producing
so the debate will get shattered
then, in a decade or two when sunspot activity picks up, the temperature and violence of the atmosphere will shoot back up, and we'll be totally caught by surprise
Well be prepared for the idiot mad dog nation you helped create
i apologize for calling osama bin laden a thug, clearly i'm way out of line
