"Hmm, I think we need a TLA soup icon."
A TSI ?
@ AC "like a twat with a glowing blue ear"
"While we British all seem perfectly well able to recognise the fact that the fake borg / cyberman look does one no favours."
Try watching the people at a motorway services and see just how discriminating Brits are.
Never mind though - these people will soon be out of the gene pool. After all BT works on the same frequency as microwave ovens.
"But it's very low power", I hear them say?
"But it still follows the inverse-square law", reply I.

Which sort of -ism?

A sort of, but with a crucial difference - marxism never needed to revise or falsify history, because that is what justifed its existence! Google (not wiki) about and you will find an Ism that doesn't need to be qualified by "a sort of".
Would that be Onanism?
The icon? Guess...
I'm sitting here in a hotel in Mozambique listening to BBC Radio 4 via their website right now, not problem there.
In many years of travel the only restrictions I have found when listening to the BBC "overseas" is when they are broadcasting something for which the rights are sold by territory, e.g. sporting contests, where the BBC is forbidden by contract to allow listeners outside the UK to participate.
Oh yes, and the UK TV licence fee doesn't pay for the BBC World Service either - that's paid for by the Foreign Office - in other words out of your and my taxes.
Very nice looking but beware of display life
OLED displays are undoubtedly the thing of the future, but the current state of the art means that display life is still an issue.
Manufacturers typically quote 10k hours lifespan for blue OLED displays (compared with well over 100 k hours for green and red versions).
While this isn't a problem for intermittent use, don't expect your player to stand up to heavy playing for more than 2-3 years before the display starts to dim.
