HD Radio: The Perfect Gift for Everyone You've Ever Met, Ever


If you switch on the radio at all this season, you might come across a handful of ads encouraging you to buy everyone you know an HD Radio. The rationale is sound and scientific. Hear:

o Why your boyfriend would prefer one to a scarf ... or to nose-hair trimmers
o Why your bookworm sister will love you forever
o How even Santa's getting one

I read up a little on HD Radio and found out songs can be tagged for purchase via iTunes later. Impulse song-hoarding? Neato. It's like a record label's wet dream.

I have it in my car - the AM quality is noticeably better...and that's about it. Meh.

"greg" is a desperate debunked troll. He spams the web about his personal problems with HD Radio. His posts are nothing but trash, as HD Radio becomes bigger and bigger "greg" becomes more desperate posting more and more debunked fud on his loser web site. Some day soon "greg" is going to be served liable for spreading his lies.

HD Digital Radio. It's here. It's local. It's free. DISCOVER IT!

Wait a second, Mr. Struble: is it in fact correct that HD radio is becoming "bigger and bigger?" That's not what I'm hearing. People are not exactly stampeding to stores to pick these things up, are they? And why should I even buy one of these overpriced gadgets when I can simply get on my computer and listen to any number of internet radio stations for free? And what of the content and programming? Should I be excited that the local light hits station now has a second station playing 60s and 70s hits? Should I be moved when the local country station launches a station with "new" country music? I'm not convinced. Never mind calling people losers. Sell me on this HD thing, or be gone.
