I fail to understand why they're expecting us to shift either from FM to DAB,
or analogue to digital TV, given that the quality on the digital is soooo
much worse. (use more 'bandwidth', auntie. And why does it pixelate so badly
on a cross fade?)

Or is it something to do with "worse is better" as someone has already
commented on w.r.t. mp3s taking over from CDs, as most people don't seem to
care about the quality.
