A Satellite Radio iPod



I’ve been working on this subject for quite some time now, and people have practically flamed me to death for it. Yet now, with the backing of CNN.com, I have VALIDATION! Sweet, sweet validation.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) – Combine the iPod with satellite radio and what do you get?

“The killer app,” said Kit Spring, an analyst with Stifel, Nicolaus & Company.

Spring isn’t the only one who thinks so.

iPods and satellite radios are the hottest electronic gadgets on the market today. Consumers can buy their favorite songs using an iPod and they can listen to their favorite genre, be it classic rock or country, on subscription satellite radio.

But they can’t do both on a single device.

“The iPod is the biggest, baddest thing around and satellite radio is this small, cool device,” said Steve Mather, an analyst with Sander Morris Harris. “Put them together and it’s the ultimate.”

See?? Am I so crazy for wanting a little integration of two awesome technologies? (Hey, stick in an FM tuner and I can die happy).[Money.CNN.com]
