Cuba Gooding Jr. was surprisingly capable as a mentally handicapped person. I think it was based on a true story, too.



What in the world?

Nobody gets me. "Radio" is a movie starring Cuba Gooding Jr. He went full retard and critics hated it!

As long as people are driving, radio will be important.

I still listen to the radio all the time! Spanish stations in south florida are hilarious in the morning.

ALL i ever listen to is Hd radio but the regular Fm stations I tend to stay away from

I still listen to the radio, and if you have a car, you already have a battery powered radio. Or don't they put FM receivers in cars anymore? Still did in 2009 anyway.

My old amp didn't have a radio and we ended up listening to the radio stations on the tv. Kinda waste of energy. New amp has FM and it also sounds better then the highly digitized shit on cable tv.

Radio has the advantage over television in that it does not need to engage the eyes AND ears at the same time, therefore it can be used in a wide variety of areas where eyes are busy (driving, work etc.)

I still think that eventually the internet will consume radio like it does television, in the form of streaming radio, but it would depend on how wide of a distribution band could be achieved in remote, portable areas (remember that the original intention of the internet is supposed to be to maintain some degree of communication in the event of disasters).



I agree with your first sentence.

I disagree with your second line.

I mean how is the internet suppose to work if a Category 4 hurricane knocks down all the power lines.  But some radio stations have backup generators, and if you have a battery operated or hand-cranked operated radio, at least you have something.....

I'm talking about the initial aim of the internet, what it's design is based on. Is it like that at the moment? Sort of, but not to a reliable level, hence the "eventually". Also, I'm talking about the transport method (possible transmission via WiMax or similar technology on an IP transport protocol). 4G is already the first step towards integrating the mobile phone network more seamlessly with computer networks via packet based transmission. Broadcasting methods such as television and radio will ultimately follow.

Besides: Just because a radio station is on backup power doesn't mean a WiMax tower cannot be.



The Zune had a built in radio. Shame.
