Actually, the Press avoided iBiquity's Booth - nothing reported about HD Radio. But, plenty of Press about Blaupunkt's Internet Car Radio, which received First Place from Popular Mechanics (big surprise). US automakers, starting with Chrysler this year, will be installing Internet Radio. Can we say "adios" to Satrad and HD Radio. At least Blaupunkt won't be jamming our 800,000,000 analog radios. LOL! HD Radio is a farce!

"What is MSN Direct"

"Connected Navigation Made Simple…Get up-to-date traffic, current gas prices, weather, news, stocks, local events, movie information, and Send to GPS all sent wirelessly to your navigation device."


"Microsoft sticks with analog"

"The company's MSN Direct was developing a new traffic and local information service using HD Radio signals. But after two years of investigating how HD Radio could be tapped, Microsoft decides to stick with its current analog system instead of converting to an HD Radio data service."


Microsoft's MSN Direct just dumped HD Radio. BTW, looking at the images of iBiquity's new "portable" HD Radio device on Orbitcast, did anyone notice how thick the device is, to accomodate the 1" x 1.2" HD chip, and the size of the power cord to drive the power-hungry device? LOL!
