Things are looking good for XM Satellite Radio. They recently crossed the 2 million subscriber mark and Wall Street is expecting big things for the second quarter. More about that HERE.

Comcast has basically declared war on the satellite TV industry with a strategy for new services and innovation. More HERE.

In case you missed it yesterday, a new software version for the 921 is downloading now. Mark Lamutt has posted the L185 Release Notes HERE.

Web site note: Lately I've been receiving e-mails from new users asking about changing the color scheme of DBSTalk. Well, there are already 7 schemes to choose from! Simply scroll down to the bottom of any page. On the left side there is a drop-down menu. Select the "skin" you like and off you go. You can also change the scheme in your UserCP.

Update: 12:33 CDT

Don't forget, the Amazing Race contest is now underway! The top prize is a 2 GHZ Pentium 4 computer. Click Here for more info.

On a non-satellite note, have you seen Spiderman 2 yet? You can read some initial thoughts about this new summer blockbuster in our "At The Movies and on DVD" forum. I have seen it myself and I must say that it does deliver. More HERE.
