I joined the XM family late last year and I never looked back. The initial concept of paying for radio might have sounded silly, but I can't imagine ever going back to FM. I currently have two subscriptions: a SkyFi unit at home, and another one that transports between my car and my office - so I'm almost never without it. The XM PCR sounded so interesting, but I haven't found the immediate need for it. However, I did pick up the boombox so the SkyFi can come with me even if I don't have a cradle around. Yes, I'm sick.
