Satellite Radio: I don't have one, and have no intention of getting one. Sorry, but I just don't spend so much time in my car that I feel the need to avoid commercials by getting one of them.
Having said that, I found this to be somewhat hysterical. XM Radio came out with the MyFi which can store up to 5 hours of programming and Sirius answers with the Starmate Replay which can store 44 minutes of programming. Were 16 meg memory chips on sale?
If Sirius were serious, they would've actually tried to come up with a product that was at least as good as that of their competitor -- even if it was nearly a year behind. Talk about stupid. If I owned Sirius stock, I'd be selling.
On a related note: Sony needs a PR consultant, and I'd like to demonstrate my wisdom right here. First, if you're going to set a date for something like a firmware upgrade for the PSP -- make certain you can meet it. If you can't meet it apologize and make some brief explanation why you failed miserably. Then you should vow to release it as soon as possible -- and not set another date that you can't meet.
