More Bad News For XM
I prefer Sirius because I've been on it and know people who work there. But XM satellite radio had one distinct advantage -- product. Its in-car radios, radios that could pull out and go home with you, radios only meant for the home, portable radios, boomboxes -- in every conceivable category, XM was there first and better. Now that's come back to bite them in the ass. Both companies have been penalized for creting products that interfere with other radio signals. But Sirius has recovered more quickly and XM's problems are getting worse.
