Default TIP: I'm getting used to this thing

I'm fortunate enough to not have the s50 crash all the time. Just twice when i left it in my car for over 12 hours and then had a scheduled recording kick in. But outside of that, I'd just like to say that this thing, and satellite radio in general are incredible. The stations on Sirius, especially Backspin, Classic Vinyl and JamOn are unbelievable, and Stern is just a bonus. Plus, who cares if it's not really 'live" portable. The thing records hours of your favorite stations on top of whatever you've scheduled. Way better than getting a crappy signal while you're walking around or on the subway.

Anyway, I just wanted to post something positive about it. Its menu quirks, occasional crashes, and the lack of any home docks is annoying, but hey, the thing is cutting edge. Just keep updating it Sirius!

I agree with your comments. It is great on many levels. Sure there are things that each of us would like to be a bit different but overall it is great concept and works well for the most part. I just hope that if they do bring out a different live portable in June/July that they do not discontinue the S50 immedately and stop software updates.
