    They made enough money without stern to buy the competition. I hope he goes he is over paid. I hope they did make money off him. and a lot more on advertising from him they only need an extra 7.7 million subscribers a year to equal his paycheck. That's before they pay anyone else. I hope his sponsors made up the rest. I don't pay attn to stock maybe they are doing better since acquiring him. Or maybe be is killing them.

    Stern has massive numbers on XM/Sirus. I'm an O&A guy myself and I find the Howard vs. O&A thing as a huge joke now. If they want bad feelings about Howard, or Howard has bad feelings about them it doesn't matter. Satellite radio is set to fail no matter who they have because of the commercials now! When I first got XM back in 2001 there was basically no commercials and that's what brought me to XM. Not to mention no DJs thanks god. But over the years their music channels have went to crap not having the depth of play lists they used to have, and their talk channels have too many commercials. I mean come on when I first came to XM I could listen to the music channels for days and maybe only hear a hand full of replays, now it's merely hours. Not to mention they kept raising the prices.

    I'm in the car a lot during some days and really enjoyed my sat radio, however now a days I have found what I used to have in Pandora and Slacker. And it's free with very very limited commercials. With the merger and certain people getting fired sat radio has went pretty far down the tubes. Too bad too, because it used to be really nice! Due to price raises I had to go from 4 radios down to one and now none. Thank god for 3G and streaming services!

    Included in your package? Thought it was always a separate service? So far, haven't been able to find a discount on it.

    If you had an original plan pre-dating the rate changes online is included for free. If you call and ask to cancel your service they will offer up 3 months for free and possibly give you the online included Just an idea. (Thats what the offered me when I called to cancel I already had the online included though)

    Yeah if you wanted quality play lists that don't repeat over and over and no commercials it was worth the money.

    Yeah it was totally worth it pre-Howard, pre-merger, and pre-rate hikes. No more for me, I use slacker and Pandora give me the same music for much much much less money per year.

    I want to record a show on CNBC for listening to on my commute home (The Kudlow Report, no not Jim Cramer like the rest of the brain dead retail investing world).

    Does anyone know of an app that allows you to record audio on our Android devices that is coming across the sound card instead of recording from the microphone?


    Thanks in advance
