Are you annoyed by TV ads that are louder than the previous the show you have been just watching? Well this is going to be over soon. A new law has passed that mandates TV stations to control the volume of TV commercials. The so called CALM act (Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act) was pushed by representative Anna G. Eshoo.
TV stations still have one year to comply after the FCC adopts the CALM act. More details on Time.
Like most of the TiVo crowd the spike in loudness of TV commercials is not bothering me anymore. The only time I watch commercials is during Super Bowl. I wonder sometimes how much longer TV ads will survive with the rise of video on demand and adoption of DVRs. TV ads should actually already be dead by now.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
