I don't normally support what hifi, but they are right. High fidelity is available more widely than ever.
Arguably, a movie looks better in an iPad than it did on a CRT tv and DVD, 10 years ago.
Music sounds better on flac files played through a 200 quid DAC and amp than an old cd player and amp. Possibly.
Given that the WHO rank mobile phones as class 2 carcinogens, and the Italian court has just ruled that they do cause brain abnormalities, perhaps WHFSV shouldn't be supporting the mobile phone industry.
Oh, there are some studies that say they are safe...guess who paid for them? ;)

To be fair, didn't the Italian court also send seismologists to prison for not predicting an earthquake?

I think they reassuringly predicted no earthquake ( so that people didn't evacuate) rather than just not predicting an earthquake? Subtle difference, but people died.
Hurricanes and weathermen spring to mind...
No, they said they had no data that would indicate a significantly increased risk of a major earthquake, which was absolutely correct, they had no data to make any predictions with, it didn't mean there was no risk of an earthquake. The problem was that a non-scientist local government representative took that as meaning "There won't be an earthquake" and went public with it, when what the scientists had said meant nothing of the sort.
Despite that the court decide the scientists were at fault. It's a total travesty of justice, complete nonsense.
No signature worth mentioning...
