A previous column vented on how those obnoxious vuvuzela horns make one watching World Cup soccer (football) broadcasts turn down the sound.
Now there is a counter against this South African weapon of mass (audio) destruction. But, unfortunately, it has been announced as only available for French viewers.
Based on the common electronic principle of filtering, a French company Audionamix has come up with its “Vuvuzela Remover" for use by the Canal+ network. Viewers will still hear other crowd noises, but without the bee-buzzing drone that's torturing fans worldwide.
