There was a rumor about this a long time ago...

...but it never materialized.

Shrug, how popular is Satellite Radio? I work at Sears, and we never have any customer interest in it...:confused:

This has been brought up many times before. I don't think it's going to happen because it's not apart of Apple's strategy i.e. iPod --> iTunes --> iTMS :)

Not likely, satellite radio isn't all that popular. Plus it would mean increased component costs, and it's still crappy radio it just sounds better.
