It's amazing she hears a difference seeing as how High Definition is a visual feature not an audio feature.

How much of this kind of crap will consumers be gullable enough to buy. Talk about a product a person can do without, this is it.

You know a little, but not enough. The HD in HD radio doesn't stand for high definition. The St. Catherine instructor was never quoted as saying she liked HD radio due to better quality audio which you seem to be alluding to. HD radio is just an extra radio signal which happens to be digital. Many times the HD channels have separate progamming from their traditional AM & FM signals. I personally woudn't mind listening t it, but I haven't gotten around to getting a receiver do to reasons mentioned in the story. I think HD radio in its current incaration won't be around long, however some form of it will be here while satellite radio will change substantially, if not go away altogether. They can only lose so much money before they have to shut down.

Bashing a product so people reading the reviews are discouraged is pretty low.

Give a try then talk crap about it.

This is why we have so much garbage in our lifestyle. A hack newspaper columnist who does not appreciate any effort in the meaning of life and happiness as a whole, touts around the idea that HD radio devices can solve our problems overnight.

Give about a week or two when Zapa starts harping about people still using old VHS machines and LP record players---as if that wasn't good enough for him and his own universe.

Where in the article does the author state that HD radio can solve our problems overnight? I must have missed it.
