    So they removed analogue as an option and then, when everyone went for the sole remaining service, claimed this makes digital more popular? That's like saying snow is more popular in Finland than the Sahara. If it's the ONLY choice it can't be more or less popular than a non-existent alternative.

    Of course it is a moot point to consider if a country is actually advancing if the inhabitants spend more of their time watching TV, gossiping on the phone, watching YouTube, playing online games and the like rather than actually doing something...

    "Equally unsurprising is the UK lead in DAB, with 34 per cent of UK residents surveyed claiming to personally own a DAB radio. 33 per cent, however, said they listen to the radio over the internet, so the need for DAB is still far from proven despite the money the BBC keeps pouring into it."

    US Texts

    Does that include texts sent via IM? My friend uses AIM and sends thousands of texts every month through AIM (unlimited package naturally) so that would do pretty well to up the average text per person to 108.

    Its not surprising they dont want DVR's - Japanese TV is, on the whole, utter trash - variety shows and such like. I'm sure if they had some compelling content like El Beeb occasionally puts out, the Japanese would be all over DVR tech.

    For a moment there, I misread the title as "Ofcom leads..." when it should have been "Retarded Ofcom claims..."

    And 34% of UK residents have £50+ DAB radios. Yeah right.
