Audible and XM Satellite Radio to hook up

Most of you know that I push Audible as a great way to widen your horizons by reading books at times when you are unable to sit down and open a real book. Well, now they're going to partner up with XM radio and develop a portable device that will receive satellite signals from XM as well as books from Audible. So now you can have 150 channels of great radio as well as listen to your favorite books, newspapers,etc. If you're a commuter, you need to check this out. (coming in 2006) Audible stock is up some 12% in the premarket this morning on this news. (Incidentally, did you know that you can get Real Time stock quotes from Google? Just type in the stock symbol and directly under the chart, you will see the Real-Time quote - very nice). Give it a try - type in ADBL and see what you find.
