Will XM replace the iPod? No...

MSN is running this article on "will XM replace the iPod" on their website's main page. My answer -no.

While the author is right that the new color screen iPods are not exactly a leap of technological brilliance, XM seems to be the answer to a question few ask. Why would I want to pay $500 to listen to their music when I can use my iPod (that I paid $200 for - a second gen clearanced at Target when the 3rd gens came out) to listen to whatever I want? The added flexibiltiy of the 'pod (like being able to plug it into my G4 at work and play songs off iTunes) only add to it's appeal.
