Amazon Surrenders To Macmillan On eBook Pricing

a42 Re:Ugh. (437 comments)

How is that screwing over the public? You want to wait, wait.

FYI, the authors make much, much more on the hardback version -- a higher percentage of a higher price.

iPhones, FStream and the Death of Satellite Radio

a42 Re:Why Pay? (397 comments)

I have never understood why anyone would pay for satellite radio programming.

Why? Because it's better. (Or was until the merger.) Better music programming and no commercials.

As far as playing MP3, CD, etc -- that takes planning and effort. With XM all I have to do is flip on the radio and there is (was) music I want to listen to.

a42 Re:Flaw in business model (397 comments)

There are also numerous alternatives to pay television and yet it's been doing okay for the past 25 years or so.

XM is (was, I hate the new Sirius/XM) a very good alternative to terrestrial radio for people like me who loathe the bulk of the crap that gets played on broadcast radio but still love music.

a42 Re:XM to Sirius/XM (397 comments)

I'm right there with you. I've had XM for 4 years and loved it. Now... I'm on the verge of dumping it because of the infiltration of crap from Sirius.

If I wanted DJ's and shallow playlists I'd listen to terrestrial radio.

How do you figure that people in the middle of nowhere are the only market? I'm not in the middle of nowhere and I've had XM for 4 years. Better channels, less talk, deeper playlists, more variety.
