In the UK they recently passed some legislation - you can pick up FM transmitters in places like HMV/Dixons etc. nowadays.

The power of the word...
I've never understood this... cunt and twat mean the same thing... however why is one seen as being the more offensive?
Surely all swear words should be placed in the same category 'offensive'... at the end of the day the offensiveness of a word is simply based upon popular usage.
It's the same with shit and crap... crap is seen as the less offensive version, but they mean the same thing! I don't quite understand the logic or the whole uproar regarding this.
RE: Google Advert whiners.
Unfortunately its the websites themselves that choose to have google adverts... its not a case of google injecting adverts without the consent of the author. So the two have nothing in common.
When Scientific Beliefs are criticised scientists attempt to prove them - why can't religious zealots do this in the same way? ... oh wait.
If they can reduce costs, and make it safe then god I hope they do this... this might actually lead towards space travel becoming more economically and commercially viable for the near future.
Reduced costs for getting payloads out into space means more money for developing other projects.
RE: Who cares?
Unfortunately I can't turn on the radio a listen to back to back trance... I have to be forced to listen to the rubbish inbetween... not that theres any trance on the radio anyway. This is something DI.fm offers me however, they have a sub fee if you want access to the high quality streams, and I'm happy to pay the relatively small amount each month.
Streaming... on a GSM phone?
I dont quite understand how they plan on streaming video on a gsm phone, it takes about 10-30 seconds often to load a single page of text.
Unless they plan on making the videos available in an incredibly low resolution.
RE: Um wait a minet
"you are all beleaving the tosh that W Bush and his government have been saying. At least Iran dosent keep hundreds of people without charge and fly people all over the world to tourcher them. They may flog and kill people for relitivly minor crimes but at least they are charged under a law (No matter how un just) given a fair trial (and yes they are fair)."
The Iranians do a much better job of keeping it quiet.. Also I don't remember the UK having a death penalty for porn in the last century or so.
