SM Radio?

February 19, 2007

…for the masochists among us, no doubt.

Apparently the Sirius / XM Radio merger is on again.

That’s terrific news. Now by not renewing the free year of Sirius radio that came with my car, I can ignore both of them in one fell swoop.

Dear Auto Manufacturers;

If you want to jam more audio technology in our cars, how about better built-in ways to navigate and control iPods, rather than some more pay-to-listen, bland, corporate radio crap?

Or better yet, how about just a well-thought-out open interface to the built-in controls, and the ability to delete your half-assed audio packages but still keep steering wheel controls, audio alert integration, etc.
