I'd love a podcast comparing Sirius and XM and also discussing what receivers 
are best--portable and not portable receivers.

  Hi y'all,

  First...thanks to a deal we couldn't pass up on the Home Shopping  
  Network, we just got our Roomba Discovery 2.1. (Well. They offered  
  Flexpay, five payments same as cash, so how could we say no?) $239.90  
  got us the Roomba with one virtual wall, the quick charger and drive- 
  on base, and an extra filter. No remote or scheduler, but that update  
  is available for it if we want it--we probably won't get it, since  
  knowing us, we'd forget to pick up something and it'd go off on its  
  scheduled rounds while we were away. We just got it last night and  
  ran it. Twice. Actually, two and a half times, once on clean, once on  
  max, and once just for fun on a partial clean cycle. After I made a  
  mess by not getting the bin open properly (i.e. upside down), it was  
  all good! This thing really picked up great! We have two cats and two  
  dogs and a five-year-old, and we think that the Roomba is a great  
  addition to our house so far. We named him Reggie...no...we feel the  
  Roomba is definitely male. Can't explain why, but he is.

  Now as for satellite radio. I just got XM...found a good deal on last  
  year's model receiver. A killer deal, actually. So now I have both  
  Sirius and XM, at least until May and when Melanie will likely make  
  me choose. Anyone interested in a podcast that compares the two  
  services?
