    Use an iTrip in the UK and face prosecution as a pirate radio station. :eek:

    Wonder how the FM-band CD players for cars and the satellite Radio add-on systems get around it. :confused:

    wtf

    Why did they bastardize my entry? I submitted this link with a funny title. They should let the titles go that are funny to attract people to read the article. Like www.fark.com. Anywa. the title is gay now =(

    Un-freakin-believable. That's what happens when laws don't keep up with technology.

    I am going to venture to say not to feel too bad, UK'ers .. in my experience, radio broadcast devices (like the iTrip) work horribly. Abolutely terrible :( Use a casette adapter or something instead. The quality's better (and you don't have to fuss with trying to find a clear station and positioning the antenna sufficiently close to your car's antenna to even be able to listen to something that resembles your music). Mileage may vary though, I guess..

    Of course, it's the IDEA behind this banning that's really amazing (and stupid, IMHO) ...

    Re: wtf

    It was my submission, I thought it was simple and secrete enough for people to click upon and find out why.
    But since you say so I guess the title is just gay, and I guess I'm gay now too, since I submitted it.

    So for future referance, may I ask what was your title? So that I may know how not to be so gay, in your opinion.

    There were two submissions of the same link. This one was first.

    Ahh.. sorry bud. Didnt mean to call it gay.. .. only called it gay because I thought they took mine and edited it. Mine was eh..i dont remember.. some remark about it being banned because of a law made in 1946 or whatever.. which should have nothing to do with **** now days. Was kind of funny I thought.
