Radio Reinvented: New devices make the most of digital broadcasts (Amanda Schupak, 03.10.2009, Political Science)

Many ordinary FM and AM stations transmit small amounts of digital data, such as song titles. And nearly 1,800 channels are entirely digital. Radio manufacturers are starting to take advantage of this extra information, creating gadgets that can not only play music, but also take notes, help you shop, or even save your life.

One of the reasons people can't wrap their minds around the fact of the deflationary epoch is that they compare the price of the car they bought today to the one their dad bought in 1962. But if those cars were animals we'd not even consider them to be the same species.
