I agree way too much confusion. But I really feel there will be some S50 for sale in stores. But when you find them, you better not hesitate or you'll be out of luck. They will be in very limited supply.

A personal friend of mine, who just happens to manage the department that sells SatRadios at my local Best Buy--tells me they have a dozen coming that are ear-marked for sale to NON-PREORDER customers. He is expecting the shipment any time now.

That may not sound like many, but please be advised that there are at least two other BB's in my city--who will most likely get about the same number each. And this is only the first shipment. There will be more.

If you want to buy one from Best Buy, and you have NOT pre-ordered, I would strenuously suggest that you get there the first day they go on sale. The same advice holds true if you wish to buy from Circuit City or any other major retailer.

Maybe I'm missing the point... if all these units are about to hit the shelves why did Sirus take it off their website?

Default Boombox

Does anyone know if the S50 wll come with a boombox? I saw the S50 being advertised on a web site, and it showed a picture of a boombox. I'm just wondering if anyone can confirm this?

Sirius is actually a front for the Inquisitor O'Brien and Big Brother. They are trying to keep people confused and asking irrelevant questions. It's all part of their grand brainwashing scheme. Keep repeating "2 + 2 = 5", and you'll be fine.

They will be making one, but to get it you'll have to fork out another $300.

No boombox at this time.

Do most tiny personal devices with MP3 capabilities have boomboxes?

Thanks.

Thanks. As you can tell, I don't own an iPod.

The myfi has MP3 capabilities? That's also news to me.

Are you referring to the "RoomBoom Desktop Music Stand"?

That appears to be an upscale home docking station with speakers. It doesn't look like it is intended to be taken out of the house. Boomboxes are portable devices that can be carried just about anywhere.

Of course, looks can be deceiving, and it might have portable capabilities.

Please advise.

Thanks!

Oh, no, the MyFi doesn't have MP3 capabilities, bad example.

If I'm not mistaken there is an actual Boombox for the iPod.

I agree it is indeed a great question. Even if they have sold out of the first shipment or have sold all they have to retailers. They would still want people to be able to look up information. Seems to me you'd leave it on the site and just put initial shipment is sold out or may not be found available until after the holidays at many retailers. But to remove it totally... that seems night odd and adds to the confusing and silliness of all this.
