you hit the nail on the head. karmazins bullshit is starting to repeat itself, such as cfbe by 2009. he claimed siri would be cfbe in 2007. siri needs a steve jobs type person with vision, not an old carnival barker like karmazin
I still believe in the Co. and product having said all that! Honestly though, I'm in so much damn debt holding this stock for so long, waiting for a merger that gave us what we got today, I will tell the Sirius-XM reps when it comes time to renew, that I've already payed my "thousands-in-sub-fees"! Hopefully I can renew my subs cheaper, and I really mean this! Yeah, I still want the service, I still like the product, but what's one to say, who has stuck by this Co. for this long, fighting for this "merger-that-would-save-the-day", and here we are, and this is what we get?
I know someone else can turn-this-around...I know someone can utilize these Sats and the combined listenership, and make this a great growth story...but I'm not convinced it's Mel Karmazin! Too old, too 20th-Century! Give him a huge trophy, and a pat-on-the-back for achieving the impossible, but give me the average-Joe stock-holder, a new CEO who can make this work! Heck, I think Sirius' current CFO David J. Frear would be more capable of the technical running of this Co. over old-Mel!
