Default why sirius wont make it

if you read back what i have said about this stock you may or may not agree. but here is a new twist that i believe will doom it at some point.
the new apple i pods. they hold up to 10,000 songs. now car stereo makers are making their radios with an i pod plugin. so why on earth would anyone want to pay 12 bucks a month for music when in minutes you can download from your computer all your cds into the i pod. people may still want talk and howard stern type stuff, but music drives the future of the stock. just one more nail in the coffin.
i currently have no interest in buying or selling this stock.

news and other content, that is why I would buy it, but do they have the content? can they share with broadcast radio?

An iPod, as you alluded, is just an extension of CDs. If you think the only reason that radio is still around is because of some transportation/convenience issue with recorded music (whether it be recorded on vinyl, cassette, or CD), you probably haven't thought much about the situation.

seems like an obvious case for integrating the two technologies. there is no technical reason why you can't have satellite radio delivered through an iPod.

personally. I own an iPod and a $29 radio armband thing which I alternate when working out -- depending on what I want... works pretty well as is...

You can't listen to sports and traffic radio (or any live event)on an iPod.

I personally think that at some point there is going to be Wi Fi points everywhere making telephone, cable, radio and cellphones obsolete.

If you really believe this why no interest in selling short, or buying puts?

Oh, and to everyone saying, "But there's news and sports on radio!": He said he realizes this, but doesn't think that's enough to support satellite radio. But he's taken that into consideration, no need to repeat it.

broadcast is around because its free. and you get local news and weather free. and local traffic free. but you pay with your time in wasted listening to junk. but its free. the majority of the world still goes for things free.

i know of no way to time stocks rise and fall. so on this i stay on the sidelines. but when it hit eight it was a joke in my eyes. but these stocks with a flair and a product that people like sometimes run for a long time before they seek their proper value.

this stock recently flew because of the howard stern hype. the best time to sell a stock is when everyone is hyping it. it was overvalued at $4, overvalued at $6, and overvalued at $9.
