Radio channels beamed from orbiting satellites made their debut in early 2002 when XM and Sirius launched competing subscription services. This is my report for The Courier-Journal, published Feb. 16, 2002.
I started reporting on gadgets and gear when Atari ruled electronic games and computers used floppy disks. My weekly column ran in the The Louisville Courier-Journal and online at USAToday.com and ABC News.com. I regularly attend CES, the CEDIA home theater convention and other tech events.
