     An article by UK’s Guardian on the future of DAB ( Digital Audio Broadcast ) sheds some light on one feature enhancement planned for the iPhone. Guardian reports that GCap Media, the UK pioneer in digital audio, has detailed plans to abandon DAB and instead focus on FM and broadband broadcasting. The company’s chief executive says all of DAB stations, with the exception of one, will be terminated and that the company is selling “analogue licences in Scotland, South Wales and Manchester”.

     Guardian also reports “in a damning indictment of the DAB platform, [the company executive] said the sound quality offered by FM compares favourably to any digital radio platform available to the consumer”. Furthermore, GCap Media “also announced a new tie-up with Apple enabling people to listen to digital radio on their iPhone”.
