Olympic Party Central

"At those parties, which happen nightly, a Russian polka/rock band plays. Borscht is served from huge vats sitting on an outdoor fire. At several bars, vodka drinks are served, some with syrupy black currant juice, others with orange rinds that bartenders set afire before dropping them into a martini glass."

Should XM and Sirius Lower Their Prices?

Uh, they could start by not paying celebs hundreds of millions. And if they don't make any money off advertising, the customer ARPU is the only place where the majority of the $$ will come from, so I'm not sure cutting your price is a way to profitability. Of course if XM just buys Sirius, then hike away as there's no other game in town (sorry Motorola, I'll see it to believe it.)

Unlike us in the wireless space, we can sell additional products/services/equipment. Buy a radio and pay your bill and that's it in the satellite world.

Doesn't take a MBA to figure this one out....

Farewell to the Bluths

The last four episodes of its third season bristled with dadaist hostility toward its audience, or perhaps its nonaudience, and toward TV itself, as if to say, "Screw you, too."

Packaging WMD

The March issue of Consumer Reports includes a feature article called "The Oyster Awards: CR's picks for America's hardest-to-open packages." It denounces those hard, transparent plastic clamshell packages that hang in stores--and that are next to impossible to open.
