Have you all seen the portable Siruis Sattellite Radio reciever with a hard drive: XM also has one of these coming out soon: I think that having a portable mp3 and satellite radio in one device is an AWESOME idea. However, these devicese can only pick up the satellite signal when docked in a home docking station! So the idea is to record the radio while docked, then listen to that recorded audio when on the go. The hard drives are 1 gig I think. That is still an OK idea, but the thing about this is that you can subscribe to XM online for a few less dollars per month than a regular subscription is, giving you access to the same XM content. And these devices are probably going to be around 300 dollars, the same price as a large capacity hard drive ipod. Would't it be smarter for a consumer to purchase the same price ipod and the cheaper XM online subsciption, then just record a few hours of your favorite stations every once and a while, save these as mp3's then transfer them to the ipod. This is practically the same thing you would be doing with the devices offered by the satellite radio companies. This way you would also have enough space on your hard drive to also store any other music in your mp3 collection. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a portable mp3 and satellite radio device, but since the satellite radio function on these devices is not actually portable, I think the idea I have proposed would be a much smarter one.
