Typing an i (compliment) instead of an e (complement) is just a typo.
Now, if you had used "infer" when you meant "imply", that would have been a serious offense. :)

So, will the slogan be "A little DAB'll do ya"?

Seriously, though, doesn't a DAB receiver use a lot more power than an FM receiver does?
Will this be a bonanza for the battery makers?

A while back, ABC announced that it would keep LiveWell on its O&O stations but would not produce any new episodes or launch any new programs. It'll be just repeats of previously aired programming.
