Default Stilettos & Macs

Any help for a Mac user that's thinking about buying a Stiletto? I don't want to have to carry around my iPod which contains a lot of music that I want to keep around and also carry the Stiletto to listen to Howard Stern.

Is there a way to load my MP3s to the Stiletto? I've heard that myStiletto (or mySirius) software won't work on Mac - is there a way to use the unit as an iPod replacement and a Sirius receiver that I can walk around with?

No has figured out yet how to connect an SL100 to a Mac. Your only option, for now, is to use a PC emulator or to dual boot into Windows. Plugging the SL100 into a USB port on a Mac does nothing: there's no mounted device, so there's nowhere to transfer MP3s.

Default Not Mac compatible?!?

Thanks for the very straightforward information.
Surprisingly enough - Sirius gave me the same answer.
As a shareholder - it's disturbing that they didn't think about this.

This device could replace my iPod because it would offer the same features (playing my MP3s) as well as something better - live broadcasts.

Wow, I thought that Sirius was a more forward-thinking company than that.

Guess I'll have to wait for the next generation.

We generally are left on the outside of this stuff...Too bad.

You can always spring for a new MacBook--which has the Mac OS along side the Windows OS.
