Broadcasters, Labels, Want To Force FM Radio Into Your iStuff

The National Association of Broadcasters and the Recording Industry Association of America, which have often bickered over royalties rules, have agreed that your iPhone and iPod need to have built-in FM radio capabilities via special microchips and want to push laws to make it happen.

The Consumer Electronics Association isn’t happy with the plan. A representative told Apple Insider: “Rather than adapt to the digital marketplace,” NAB and RIAA act like buggy-whip industries that refuse to innovate and seek to impose penalties on those that do.”

If you’ve got an iThing, do you wish it had FM radio?
