|SIRI and XMSR in merger talks?|
Not a big fan of Karmazin...I work in this (media) industry and his rep isn't the best. He's had success, sure, but so did Chainsaw Al.
A merger would probably be the best thing for both companies. Competition in that arena is very odd, doesn't make sense. It isn't real competition if you have to purchase 2 different delivery systems to receive the real goods. Media isn't a commodity in the traditional sense.
SIRI has a tough row to hoe. This is probably the best scenario for them, but XMSR would gain because they'd get some primo properties.
