Gee, I thought this was a list about digital media, not automobiles.

Have any fools hereabouts thought about how the decline in new GM car sales
will affect the uptake of XM Sirius, against the aggressive financing and
short-term debt obligations of the merged entity?  While forcing all Sirius
users to adopt new radios?

None of the "usual suspects" seems to have pondered these.  I've been
thinking about it for several weeks.

Technology and migration issues aside, the merged companies are in trouble and have huge debts that come due early next year. Given the current economic problems and the slowdown in sales of new vehicles, the future does not look too bright.
