Is Apple sirius?

Is Apple ‘sirius-ly’ considering making Jeff Jarvis’ dream gadget? Were it not for the the fact that the 14-year-old in my house watches TV cable channels about video games, I would not know about the rumors flying today (and here and here and lots of other places) about Apple signing a deal with Sirius (again, this is a rumor) to market iPods that can receive and record the company’s satellite broadcasts (Okay, I’ll start another rumor: Jeff Jarvis has volunteered to be a beta tester for this future version of Howard Stern satellite podcasting.)
