I am certain that the iPhone is an amazing device, but in what fantasy does it
do anything for "free?" Am I the ignorant one? Am I missing something? Or are people simply incapable of logical evaluations anymore? Satrad is worth its costs or not. An iPhone is worth its costs or not.

I am aware that the writer was reviewing the XMp3 rather than just XM itself, but I get a little tired of hearing people asserting
that their expensive services are free.

Unless I'm missing something, Sirius has had a device like this for close to two years (the S-50 and then later the Stiletto and Stiletto 2).

The S-50 was really a true portable. You couldn't listen to live satellite radio - only stuff you recorded when it was hooked up to the home dock. XM won that race with the "MyFi"
