Listening to the radio here at work.
Commercial comes on talking about not liking to hear commercials on the radio, just music.
It was a commercial for Sirius satellite radio for sale at Radio Shack.
Just found it kinda ironic.

whats funny is that Sirius does have commercials... that pissed me off when i bought it "Commercial Free Radio" when in reality, it has a commercial after about every about 10 songs... and they are usually really long.

Actually, if you listen closely to that claim, they indicate that it'* only commercial free MUSIC. Not everything they broadcast is commercial-free - just the music stations are.

A quick Google search turned up lots of talk of plans of a merger back in February, but as far as I can tell it hasn't happened yet.

and it wont happen.

when XM wanted to start up the FCC would not let them start without a competitor, thats why sirius started, it is doubtful that they will allow a monopoly to develop now

Hate all that crap.

Only 1 DSL provider, and 1 Cable internet provider?

Yes, you're right. XM is the same. And, it is just certain stations. Essentially all the non-music stations are subject to commercials.

Hmmm.wouldn't mind getting one or the other.
