I hold a few thousand shares of Siri - I am not concerned about the recent dip in price, though I hold siri for trading and it has jammed up some capital and i am at a loss. I think for the next couple of years as subscriptions continue to increase the price will on average go up. That said: I am not a big sports fan. I would like to have conversations on the air with top scientists and intellectuals. I would subscribe to Siri tomorrow if they brought on Dick Cavett - for those to young to remember the most entertaining interviewer of all time -- Scientists who are resonsbile for the largess given the world today, are greatly underpaid and have much to say -- from psychiatrists to biology experts on dna -- would love to be able to reach some nobel laureates on the air -
if i were to sign up today i would sign up for xmr beuause why should i pay extra $3 for siri - like i said no interest in sports or shock jocks such as the eternal pubescent howard stern -
If you are interested in "intellectualism", then you certainly wouldn't be signing up with XM! Intellectualize on this! Sirius uses "S-plex technology", with 3 high-flying birds that run a figure-8 pattern. Sirius "satellite structure" is much more "well-though-out", complicated, and "intellectual", than XM's geostationary orbit; and Sirius is able to reach more northely lattitudes, with better reception "on the ground"! If you're into "intellectual law", chew on this: http://www.law.suffolk.edu/stuservices/jhtl/V1N1/DERSKINEV1N1N.pdf
And you might also care to know that Wisdom Radio, on Sirius stream 132, has some of the most "leading-edge", philosopher/physicist/meta-physicist lecturers and teachers in the world, showcased on this "exclusive stream". Sirius Satellite Radio is "intellectualism's" greatest ally, not XFM!
<You would think an "itellectual" would know that if you signed up for a full year, the price drops to $9.99/mo.>
i am glad to hear that - think they should set a $10 price or whatever to match xmsr always --over the years i have observed business products grab share by price and then gradually lift price up -- price is a big factor when selecting
