Sirus Continues To Suck, and Suck HARD…

I remember back in the good old days, mergers usually resulted in a better company, and you took the BEST of both companies and kicked butt, by eliminating all the deadwood.

It seems that the rocket scientists over at SirusXM, have figured out how to screw that up beyond all recognition. First thing they did wrong is get rid of all the XM music programming, and keep the crappy redundant Sirius programming, seems like it is almost on a loop. Then they kept the crappy DJ’s (Here’s a hint cut the DJ’s and save money), if I want talk I’ll listen to Howard, and listening to Richard Blade’s wedding DJ gigs is getting old, kind sound like a commercial to me on a commercial free station…

So now comes the next blow, the apparent death of uSirius Starplayr, which looks like it officially ends the same day that you have to start paying for the Sirius internet feed in addition to your regular subscription. There is very little info coming out of the starplayr camp, but one rumor is that it is over the the apparent death of the iPhone app, and I am guessing a change to how things authenticate etc… There are rumors of a forthcoming SiriusXM iPhone app from SiriusXM, and that is the reason that uSirius Starplayr has not been approved. I have not seen anything regarding Rogue Amoeba’s Pulsar, but I’m willing to bet it is history as well…

uSirius StarPlayr, has/had a great interface, and is/was pretty rock solid form the start, and it will be missed. I can only hope that whatever the genius’s at SiriusXM come up with is half as good.

So now we come to Sirius stock SIRI, and yes I am an owner of this mess called a stock, and have a cost basis I think in the $2.70 range or about 20 time more then it is worth today.

I can only hope that the vast majority of Mel Karmazin, Scott Greentstein and the other rocket scientists running the show over there at Sirius is in stock , but I couldn’t find anything current… They’ll probably get a bazillion shares @ $0.14 and some how get it back to a dollar and be good to go for life…

So in closing, thanks Todd, Jason and the other guys, you did some pretty cool stuff, and I hope you had fun doing it…

Good luck…
