How do you feel about Sirius
How does everyone feel about siri stock, I keep debating to buy some for myself. I think it's all hype though, but short-term the hype might make a few bucks......
Alot of people like siri or its competitor, but until rush is on there I listen to my CD's. Most people dont even listen to radio do the 7 dollar price is deceptive. Although I would have questioned GOOG at 100 billion..
Sirius' new portable unit the s50, unveiled today, is great looking. Very
iPodish and will probably have a good holiday season. Sales at SIRI are
expected to double next year. As long as they can keep their cash burn rate
low enough to reach cash flow positive status they'll be okay.
Sprint/Nextel subscribers can now access Sirius programming from cell
phones for $6.95/month.
One limitation to the S50 is that you can't listen to live programming on the go.
It has to be recorded.
From my research SIRI wasn't confident at this juncture they could support live programming on the go as there are too many dropouts which would frustrate customers.
Full disclosure I am a subscriber and shareholder
Thanks for bringing up that most crucial of points. If you have to sit at a
computer and program a recording schedule to listen "on the go", then this
battle has already been won by..............APPLE.
For the same money $399, you can carry with you: music that you like,
pictures, slide shows, audio books, podcasts and videos that you can play on
a stereo or hook up to a TV. Sirius is dooooooooomed.
No way Howard Stern is going to save this one, Baby!
I hear Howard has something like a $500,000.000 contract. Am I crazy or did I read that right?
Maybe I should start bringing porn stars and strippers to my seminars. Anyone have any porn stars as clients? I always wondered where they invest their money.
you read it right.
however, that is for the whole show not just for him. But i'm sure he made out ok himself on the deal.
I love Howard but the real reason I am a shareholder is because of his boss Mel Karmazin.
If I got invited to a seminar with strippers and porn stars, I'd sign up. Forget
about cofee and donuts, that sounds like a business model to experiment
