I’m currently reviewing the Tangent Wi-Fi radio for work. It uses the Reciva system, so you can choose from thousands of stations by location and genre – so, obviously, given this huge choice I’ve found myself compelled to listen to right-wing crazies on American talk radio. This is always amusing, but today I came across a real gem: Rush Limbaugh speaking about High Definition video. So who won the HD war – was it the movie studios who supported Blu-Ray? Sony’s PS3 gamble? The porn industry? Any other often suggested theory? Nope – it was Rush. A few snippets from his thoughts on HD:
- Women don’t care about picture quality, as they just want to push the button and have the device work
- People “can thank” Rush for Blu-Ray winning the high def war
- Rush owns every single Blu-Ray disc (except for some “dancing” ones)
Must remember this for my next article on the subject. Bonus technology-related Limbaugh fact: he’s also a noted Mac user (insert your own Think Different joke here).
