Satellite radio Tue, Dec 18, 2007
A friend who has satellite radio recently told me the reason he's no longer enthralled with the service:  It's still just radio, which means you have to accept whatever's being broadcast at any given time.  You have no control over what you listen to.  Everything in our society is moving towards on-demand content, what with on-demand movies, on-demand music via mp3 players, and on-demand everything else through the internet.  Satellite radio needs to keep up.  We grudgingly adhere to the schedules put in place for our TV shows, but radio?  We only listen to the radio when we're driving.  And even if radio became on-demand, we'd just use mp3 players.  It's a dead-end business in my opinion. #entertainment
