SiriusXM

We bought a new KIA Optima a month ago and only yesterday did I discover that one of the perks for the purchase was a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM, the satellite radio signal that goes directly to your car or I-phone or computer, 130 different stations ranging from all genres of music to sports talk to comedy to national and world news. It’s intriguing but what am I going to do with another way to access music and news? I finally got a car that plays mp3 cd’s, so I can now load about 150 tracks and listen to them on shuffle. I already watch more tv sports than I can handle. And I have an I-Pod that holds 1500 tracks. In order to make the automobile SiriusXM worthwhile, I’d have to spend most of my days traveling to and from work or taking extensive cross-country trips. I no longer go to work and we’re both done with long trips. How can people keep up with the barrage of sights and sounds that television and I-Pods and cell phones and texting and instant messaging throw at them? I have over 13,000 music tracks on my computer. I have thousands of read and unread books in my library. I have well over a hundred tv channels to watch. Do I really need another device that adds to that barrage of things to see and listen to? I don’t think so.
