    Dunno how trustworthy their news division is compared to the rest of the site of user submissions.

    Personally, when it comes in, I like XM. Great sound on all five speakers, no commercials for the most part on the ones I do listen too, Chrome and Cinemagic. I know nothing about Sirius, though, so I don't know how that would change things..

    would this be a good, or bad thing? If it means no commercials on XM, and it being around longer, maybe even a reduced price, I'm for it [​IMG].

    all i care about is how it will affect my sirius stock price...personally, i like the live djs on sirius better than xm's offerings...i currently have both, but was going to cancel xm when my subscription ran out...now i will wait and see what happens.

    i do know that the guy that bungled the echostar/directtv merger is heading this one up as well...for what thats worth

    competition is good
    mergers of this sort are bad

    competition can be good, but also annoying. I just bought a new Honda. The car comes with XM ready radio w built in antenna etc. Trouble is - I have Sirius and don't want to switch to an inferior product. So I must pay extra to have Sirius wired into my car by a 3rd party or spend a few hours doing it myself. Nice.

    generalizations and blanket statements are bad too [​IMG]

    this would be as likely to happen as the dish network/direct tv merger.
