Sirius/XM Merger Announced!

From Howard Seriously

The iPhone *will* be Sirius enabled. It will be able to receive Sirius broadcasts. Apple has nothing to do with it. Sirius doesn't need Apple's permission.

The iPhone has a full featured web browser which allows it access to the entire internet including Sirius' web broadcast. (And XM's by the way.) Apple would have to actively prevent the iPhone from getting Sirius. If Steve Jobs tried to do that, prevent web users from accessing specific content, all hell would break loose. Especially given the fact that iPod and satellite radio are viewed as competitors. Sirius could easily sue them and win.

Moreover, it simply doesn't hurt Apple if their iPhones can receive Sirius web broadcasts. If anything, it will simply help iPhone sales.

If this story is true, Lesa will be sooooo happy. She'll have her cake and eat it too.

LOL well, it does make sense. Shouldn't you be able to listen to XM or Sirius on a Web enabled SmartPhone now?
