Stop, collaborate and listen, but don't skip too often?

Rewind / Fast Forward Limit Exceeded

I have an XM radio subscription. I've had it for a while, and I've watched it go through a bunch of changes. These days, I can listen to it from my phone. This is nice when I'm not sitting in my car but want to catch something like their "top 90 of the '90s" which ran yesterday.

Their latest revision of this phone application added some sort of buffer where you can skip to the next song. This is pretty neat, so I left it paused for a while and then came back. Then I could just push the ">>|" button to jump ahead.

Obviously, I did it one too many times... and they never told me anything about a limit!

As a result, I had to listen to Ice Ice Baby one more time. Uh, thanks?
