I just made a little pee. Reader Travis just sent us a note that XM and Samsung are creating an XM portable MP3 player that might not look like giant robot turds. From the release:

Both players will come with an XM Radio home accessory kit, which allows the device to receive XM's 150 channels of commercial-free music, plus news, talk and entertainment programming in the home. Samsung's new players will be available in two storage capacity sizes and are anticipated to be available by year's end.

I'm suspecting these will be flash players and you probably won't be able to record radio on the fly—all conjecture. However, it's interesting the Samsung is doing this and not Sony or anyone else, for that matter. Too bad for them.
