Lets be honest here, the Stiletto has issues that need to be addressed. From what I have read the thing doesn't work well unless you are outside. The automatic defense is that you can use the wi-fi but if you are using that you can only get the channels that they offer online. In other words most talk/sports channels aren't available. Another complaint about the Stiletto is that the antenna is in the headphones. Is this correct? Finally, doesn't it only hold a few gigs worth of material? I have over 60 gigs on my iPod already. If I am wrong with these statements let me know please.
Bottom line....if you are not a "fan" of a particular technology or service you will find all kinds of things to "hate" about it.
I have seen many good reviews of the stiletto and though I don't own one I believe they are very good at what they do. Again because I enjoy satrad I tend to look at the service from a different perspective than someone who does not.

I would buy a "barebones" Stilleto that was smaller, lighter and WITHOUT the wi-fi and mp3 features in a minute. It would have to sell for like $130. or so, and come with a clip to wear on your belt. If Sirius came out with something like, that that worked flawlessly, they would sell millions! It would be another Sony walkman revolution, only for satellite radio.

No, I believe that model is the same size as the Stellito 100 (and sells for $249.) and lacking the "wi-fi" capability. I'm talking about a Sony walkman size Sirius satellite radio, that is light and small, and low cost.(no mp3 or wi-fi) I don't know if it is possible to make it that small yet?

As much as I love Sirius, I would cancel my subscription if Howard was to return to boring free radio (with tons of commercials).
