Auto companies crawl back to the primer for yet another 14 billion in bailout money – as they got half what they asked for in December, this isn’t particularly surprising. I don’t have anything to say about this, I just wanted to use this picture of the monopoly car getting to collect $200 as it passes go. Also note the backdrop of the real estate.

No, those bits of satellite falling from the sky over Texas aren’t XM/Sirius but the company may yet go bankrupt. This sounds like a spectacular idea to me. XM and SIRI duking it out with hundred million dollar fists to one-up one another on content was completely ridiculous. Those deals need to be restructured badly. With Sirius/XM as the only satellite radio provider, they should be able to bring their content costs down… and a bankruptcy filing is a particularly good bargaining chip when paychecks have to be trimmed.
