Sirius Satellite Radio CEO Mel Karmazin told shareholders this week that he is still talking with companies (including Apple) about creating a Sirius-enabled MP3 player.

Standard & Poor’s Equity Research reiterated a “sell” rating on Audible.com stock, noting that “podcasting constitutes a growing threat” to the company, “particularly its Periodicals and Radio and TV categories.”

Three Playlist Club events will take place next month at the London School of Economics on June 1, the Progress Bar on June 18, and in Philadelphia on June 20.

The Boston Globe reports on a spat between podcasting pioneers Dave Winer and Adam Curry over who deserves credit for creating the technology.

Winer is aptly named.  He didn’t invent podcasting.  People were putting up amatuer radio in the 90’s.  He didn’t even invent the RSS enclosures that make podcasting able to be “cast.”.

In short, he did very little but make up a name and then try to take all the credit.

I think Sirius, or anyone who teams up with Apple would benefit hugely.  The only way I see Apple teaming with anyone is if they get a huge cut of the profits.  Jobs and Co. are in a great spot for a company to be.
