Stiletto Available for Pre-Order

Tuesday, September 05, 2006


Wired is reporting that the Sirius Stiletto 100 is available for pre-order now at TSS-Radio and Crutchfield.

This is pretty exciting. I doubt SIRIUS would let these stores take pre-orders if they thought that the Stiletto was going to slip past the end of September.

The Wired article also supposes that SIRIUS will become more focused on the internet as a means of distributing audio:

"
It looks like Sirius is starting to agree with me that the internet is better than satellites for distributing audio, even though it's not everywhere (yet). As Wi-Fi and other wireless internet technologies become more widely available, I think those Sirius (and XM) satellites are going to look like a tremendous waste of money. The costs of those satellites, of course, get passed on partially to Stern's fans, many of whom have balked at paying for what they used to get for free.
"

Unfortunately the internet isn't that well-suited to broadcast formats (where pre-set content is received by a wide audience), since it was designed as a means of point-point communication. However, such technical obstacles will eventually become moot as the amount of bandwith increases. I sure do wish that he is right and WiFi/Wireless internet will be available soon on a more widespread basis. It kills me every time I have to pay Starbucks $10 to use their wireless for a few hours.
