The FCC has determined that the iPod is not a competitor to satellite radio, a possible blow to the hopes of XM and Sirius merging. Who’s celebrating this? The National Association of Broadcasters, of course. That’s the group (along with the RIAA) that doesn’t want you to have a choice of what platform you want to listen to your music.
In matter of fact, I’m listening to an iPod right now. Not satellite radio, and definitely not the crap on terrestrial radio. It’s a competitor. That’s a fact. The FCC and their anti-consumer cohorts at the NAB are idiots. That too is a fact.
