are people really ready to pay 10 bucks a month to listen to the radio? Especially for something that has always been free. I personally don't think so. I know I am not going to.

and as far as the technology goes, I think its just a brief stepping stone. Kind of like cassettes were to vinyl, and how CD's were to DVD and MP3. Or even cordless phones to cellular phones. Heck we can already send images over our cell phones. Its just a matter of years till we get live TV images on them too. So IMO, paying all of this money in long term, multi million dollar contracts is going to be their financial downfall.

i won't buy it

just my .02


You can already watch movies on the gameboy 8-o , and you can download Windows or Quicktime movies onto the cell and watch em.
