    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

Misunderstanding the XM/Sirius merger

Filed under: News, Radio Today — Charlie Summers @ 11:08 pm

From The Washington Times: Misunderstanding the XM/Sirius merger

From the editorial: “The reason why the price freeze and new packages by themselves cannot fully protect satellite radio consumers is that XM and Sirius compete along multiple dimensions for subscribers, including programming choice, equipment, and the amount of commercial time (virtually none today). Committing to refrain from adjusting one of these levers of competition for a fixed duration does not protect consumers against a degradation of programming, an increase in equipment costs, or a sudden infusion of commercials.”

Someone finally gets it. It just isn’t something I’d expect from The Washington Times.
