What, no Howard Stern on iPhone app? Are they Sirius?

Howard Stern isn't available on the new Sirius XM (SIRI) software application, which is available at Apple's iTunes store today.

Some customers of the satellite radio service won't need to hear anything more than that to know whether or not they will download the app onto their iPhone or iPod Touch. That said, it was the sixth most popular free app, according to Apple's iTunes website this afternoon.

"You could argue you're not getting Stern, which sucks, but it's better than what you were getting before, which was nothing," David Bank, analyst at RBC Capital Markets, said in a phone interview. "It's like a product light version."
