I was looking at some entry level blue-ray players last weekend. I was looking for one that had Netflix streaming built in. To my horror, I noticed a number of them also had Pandora built in. This is more damning than having Pandora come with a cell phone. The cell phone app requires a specific high end phone with a data plan. These were budget blue-ray players and anyone with high speed internet could use them with Pandora.
For Sirius to be successful it needs to be available everywhere. It needs to be in the car, in the home and on the go. It does a great job in the car. Sirius's support of home applications has been pathetic. There are a few internet radios that support Sirius. The Stiletto is an excellent WiFi device but they didn't include WiFi in the XMP3. Why? Finally on the go. No Iphone app, No blacKberry app. The Stiletto and XMP3 are fine if your outside but thats about it.
