Even Google seems to think its all offishal, as I was looking for some graphics to mash up for this post.... xmsiriusmerger.jpg
  • Is today the day that we'll finally get a decision on the merger? Last week The Eck and the 1221 (not to mention the internets) were abuzz with rumors that approval from the Justice Department was imminent... ...Many believe that the DOJ will issue its announcement before the bell on Monday, mostly based on Bear Stearns' word that the deal will be approved as soon as last Friday or today. Of course, no one knows for sure except for the DOJ itself... but what do you think? Is today the day? {orbitcast}
Grumpybear has XM, its great. I'm always logged into the online radio page at work, the other office, etc. Sirius? eh, one friend has it, got it for Stern, and I'm not sure if he still uses it now he has an iPhone as his Lord and saviour. The big deal here isn't so much the merger. Satellite radio is so cheap and affordable, there isn't any fear of jacked up service and costs for the consumer. In fact, this is great... dual services with one device, merged services, whatever. Total win for the consumer. Finally, Sirius customer could possibly one day get their money's worth the day they hear Opie and Anthony (yes, Fuck Stern). The outcry is really from terrestrial broadcasters, who may not be able to cope with the gravitational influence of such a super radio giant. I say this is signs of change. Terrestrial anything is going the way of the CD: great as a backup, but not really the easiest way to consume. Let's see what happens. Perhaps hands will shake by the closing bell.
