How is that screwing over the public? You want to wait, wait.
FYI, the authors make much, much more on the hardback version -- a higher percentage of a higher price.
I have never understood why anyone would pay for satellite radio programming.
Why? Because it's better. (Or was until the merger.) Better music programming and no commercials.
As far as playing MP3, CD, etc -- that takes planning and effort. With XM all I have to do is flip on the radio and there is (was) music I want to listen to.

There are also numerous alternatives to pay television and yet it's been doing okay for the past 25 years or so.
XM is (was, I hate the new Sirius/XM) a very good alternative to terrestrial radio for people like me who loathe the bulk of the crap that gets played on broadcast radio but still love music.

If I wanted DJ's and shallow playlists I'd listen to terrestrial radio.
How do you figure that people in the middle of nowhere are the only market? I'm not in the middle of nowhere and I've had XM for 4 years. Better channels, less talk, deeper playlists, more variety.
