Being from Australia, I was impressed enough with the concept of satellite radio and being able to access so much live information in your car. Needless to say, when my XM guide started talking to the car in a conversational style, and getting responses back on countless topics, my head nearly fell off. "What's the weather like in Indiana?" "Are there any results for the Knicks game?" "Who plays this song on the radio?" The user doesn't need to learn any particular format of request, or speak any differently than they normally would, and there's no need to teach the system anything. It seems to understand anything. XM's big news was about its role in the delivery of the Onix 400 Weather Tracker, which alerts you to any potential weather issues on your route or at your destination, as well as a universal receiver that works with any existing AM/FM radio. The company's also demonstrating its ability to broadcast video.
