Forbes: "Give the iPod away and get Sirius Satellite Radio's slick new S50"

Wednesday, November 09, 2005

First on GSI:
Forbes.com , picks the S50 over the Ipod.. Not only that they think you should give the I-pod away! Bruce Upbin writes, "I'm sick of the songs on my iPod, even my Glenn Gould and Johnny Cash albums. But it would be absurd to refill my 10-gigabyte iPod at the iTunes Music Store, as it would cost me $2,000, not to mention hours spent figuring out what's worth owning.. ..get Sirius Satellite Radio's slick new S50 for $360. For $13 a month Iget sports, talk and news, plus 65 commercial-free music stations programmed by people way more knowledgeable about music than I am."

If you recall, Frobes.com ran a poll a few weeks back.. The S50 got over 50% in that poll...

I would like the owner of this site to respond to the following. Supposedly the guys at GSI have been changing the dates on past posts to claim that they were first to break stories:

I make edits to my post at times as new info is out there. Most of the time we post the PR word for word them, will look into the story and add to the story. I do not know how the time stamp works. I know when I first started to post my settings were wrong in Blogger I was in the wrong time zone. I will see if the timestamp changes when we edit a post I will check the settings again

We do edit post to update content on stories as we need to. Most of the time it is the same day or the next day. Most post with PR that are cut and paste, we edit as we get time later. I just did test post, and the time was not set the same of all of us who post here. We removed the time stamps until we can work that problem out.

Labels Pressure Congress On Satcasters, HD Radio

November 9, 2005

The music industry is voicing concerns over the ability to record from new, digital technologies. The Recording Industry Association of American (RIAA) is lobbying Congress and the FCC to enforce some form of copy-protection or encryption on HD radio and satellite broadcasts, so they cannot be recorded and converted into high-quality copies of songs.

The RIAA has backed the "HD Radio Content Protection Act of 2005," which hopes to limit the storage amounts on new, digital recording devices for satellite radio. They also propose that the FCC "prevent redistribution of recordings onto the Internet, removable media or to other devices" as well as limiting the ability to easily separate individual tracks from recorded content.

On the other side of the coin, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and Home Recording Rights Coalition (HRRC) are urging Congress not to hold back technological development. CEA VP of technological policy Michael Petricone recently spoke to a House subcommittee on the subject, saying, "The rollout of terrestrial digital radio is well underway. Over 500 stations are broadcasting digitally, thousands of radios have already been sold; over 25,000 are forecast to be in the market by year end, with tens if not hundreds of thousands to follow in 2006. Since no encryption system currently exists, an encryption requirement would render both the transmission infrastructure and the initial radios obsolete, stopping the rollout of this new technology in its tracks."

Petricone continued, "In essence, the RIAA is trying to use this Committee to leverage the satellite radio industry on the eve of negotiation for a new performance royalty. And, without saying so, RIAA is trying to gut the 'Audio Home Recording Act' written by this Subcommittee."
