I've been following the transition for a few years now and one thing completely irks me about the converter box coupon program. Why didn't Congress make some exclusions for who can apply? It astounds me to read so many people applying for these coupons on Electronics and gadgets forums who have no need for assistance and questions like "how come I can't find a converter box with a HDMI connection"? Call me old fashioned but if you're able to walk and hold out your hand for money, you probably don't need it. This is costing taxpayers billions of dollars. DTV is just another fleecing of Americans by Congress.
