The chips aren't made of fairies and glittery magic, there are transistors inside them as well

Where I live in England a small (pocket) radio is still called a transistor radio. A larger radio would be just called a radio.

That part of the tower that falls to the left looks like having fallen from the sky.

Is it possible that this was the reason I could not tune into any fm station in the car today (in Friesland)?

BTW would you guys on the island also say transistor radio about that thing hidding between the panels in front of your automobiles? Wrong question, one cannot carry this one around... but seriously, do you bother with using that word transistor? But anyway, no one uses that thing anymore around.
