HD Radio is a fraud and a farce, so anything that helps it fail, is wonderful news !

700WLW is an IDIOT

700WLW is an idiot - pure and simple. The poor guy spends all of his time looking for blogs like this one to comment on.

I'd be willing to bet he hasn't been laid in years.

As for the blog entry - I agree. They definitely missed an opportunity.

700WLW is an IDIOT

I need to amend my last post. After reading more of his comments, I'm convinced this 700WLW guy hasn't EVER been laid.


In response to "700WLW is an IDIOT":

“HD Radio on the Offense”

“But after an investigation of HD Radio units, the stations playing HD, and the company that owns the technology; and some interviews with the wonks in DC, it looks like HD Radio is a high-level corporate scam, a huge carny shill.”


“4/4/07 - FCC: Market to Decide Fate of HD Radio”


“Sirius, XM, and HD: Consumer interest reality check”

“While interest in satellite radio is diminishing, interest in HD shows no signs of a pulse.”


“U.S. automakers not jumping into HD Radio”


“Bridge Ratings: Sweat the cell phone and don’t count on HD”

“In other words, Bridge says interest in HD radio is decreasing even as your station works hard to increase awareness. What can I possibly add to this honest and bleak picture that I haven’t said before? My well-intended warnings about HD’s “premature death” seem to be rearing their ugly heads almost two years later.”


“But is ‘availability’ of HD radios the problem?”

“And one broadcaster reported to me that he asked an iBiquity rep how many HD radios had actually been sold as of the most recent accounting. And this was his answer: 150,000.”


HD Radio is a scam that has been a complete failure with consumers and the auto industry.
