The bottom comment on the Tech Radar DRDB interview makes someSteve - I don't usually bother to respond to your biased rants,
pertinent points (BTW, mandyg is Mandy Green, PR person from DRDB -
also the person who claimed that the Pure Highway had 300% per month
Are you claiming that you're not biased? I do hope not, because if you're
claiming that then you're living in denial. The DRDB's remit is basically
to be highly biased towards DAB and to talk down Internet radio, and
please don't try to deny that.
set the record straight, I don't write press releases for Pure,
If you re-read what I wrote, I said you're the PR person for the DRDB -
are you claiming that's inaccurate?
The other thing I said was that you claimed that the Pure Highway had 300%
per month sales growth, and that was referring to what I'd written in this
because I'd read the WorldDMB newsletter thing:
and you'd written on page 4:
"The growth of in-car products in 2008
is particularly significant. With the
introduction of the PURE Highway, sales
have grown by an average of 300% per
To which I commented:
"If this impressive rate of growth has continued throughout Jan - March
2009 as well througout 2008, sales must have grown by a factor of 3^15
= 14.349 million since the end of 2007.
So if, say, 1,000 in-car DAB products were sold on average per month
at the end of 2007, in-car DAB products should be selling at a rate of
14.3 billion per month now.
Anyway, as I said at the bottom of that post, I've organised a whip round
to buy the DRDB a new calculator, because I've been concerned for a few
years about the accuracy of the figures the DRDB comes out with, so it's
obviously the fault of the DRDB's calculator, and we've managed to buy you
one of these:
It's the best we could get for the amount collected, unfortunately.
have a perfectly capable PR department of their own.

Somehow I don't think Mandy has time to wade through all your shit. (I
certainly don't right now).
In fact... ask anyone who isn't retired, unemployed or housebound and you'll
almost-certainly find they have better things to do than listen to the
deranged rantings of some obsessive, self-important,
whining, deaf cunt with
dubious mathematical abilities and a below-average IQ.
That sort of comment isn't that impressive to the argument...
