My opinion is "yes", and SIRI will die from it.

We witnessed what happened today.

Now for the future. Will Howard want a sweeter deal yet, a deal SIRI really can't afford? Does Howard subscribe to the belief that if he's worth $100 MM a year now, that only a chump would sign for less?

Will he find another medium like www.howardstern.com where he can stream both his live show AND his On Demand video to HIS subscribers whilst leaving SIRI behind to rot in the desert sun? Then he can sign other distribution deals for additional outlets.

Howard is loyal; we know that. But he's not loyal to any of us common shareholders. I think he's gone.
