    Niveus Media has a Sirius plugin for Windows Media Center. Maybe it's good?

    So I was all prepared to give Niveus Media's new Sirius XM Windows Media Center plugin a try. (As I found out during a meeting with Microsoft while at CES, Windows 7 comes with Windows Media Center built in. I 100 percent didn't know that till the Microsoft guys told me. Amazing. What else does Windows 7 do that I didn't know?) Right, so I was all prepared, installed it, then tried to run the… Read More

    New XM Radio lineup leaked: No more classic hip-hop

    This is the new XM channel lineup, which includes the “best of” Sirius. (The Sirius lineup, featuring the “best of” XM, should be revealed today, too.) A quick look shows that the good electronic stations are gone (of course), but The Virus (Opie and Anthony and Ron and Fez) is still around on 202. It also looks like The Rhyme, the old school hip-hop channel, is gone, which… Read More

    Alltel's Samsung Wafer With XM Radio

    About this time last year, I took a look at the Samsung Trace and went “Damn, this is a thin phone. I’m probably going to break it in the next two weeks.” I didn’t, but the new Samsung Wafer from Alltel Wireless is quite the skinny puppy as well. Aside from having a thin body and being called the SCH-R510 when it’s feeling grouchy, this phone comes loaded with some… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Seagate's Hard Drives, iPod Accessories Galore And Exhaustion

    , but with more walking. This entry catalogs the companies I met with the first “half” of January 8, my first full day of the show. After waiting in a cab line for half an hour and then coughing up $20 to get from our hotel to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) I hit the show floor for my first meeting at 9:30 with Seagate. Last time I spoke with the company reps back at… Read More
