Our local Pioneer Press offers an article about HD radio which intrigues me. There are some interesting developments in the technology. One of them is this:
More important, the radios have an iTunes tagging feature, developed with Apple’s help and being tested in the San Francisco Bay area. This means users can press a button to tag songs they like, save that information to their docked iPods, and later transfer this info to their iTunes software on their computers.
They then can buy the songs on Apple’s music store.
That is a fantastic idea. However, I truly enjoyed this perfect stall that comes later in the article:
“We’re definitely taking a hard look at (this technology), but no commitment yet,” Nycklemoe said. “It’s so new.”
We’re definitely taking a hard look at it. Many a salesperson has fallen for that line that appears to imply much but says little. True confession – in my years as a green salesperson, I suckered for that line many times. Perhaps that is why I am hypersensitive towards it today!
