A friend recently got me hooked on Pandora. For those of you who have never heard about it, think of it as a customized learning radio station. You tell it the name of a singer or song and it create a radio station that plays similar music. The learning comes into play when you tell it what songs you like, and dislike.
The only problem is it requires you keep a browser open to listen to the music. But thanks to a link from Samuelson to a program called Pandora’s Box that is a requirement no more. It seems to have a bug picking up the new songs that are playing (so I can’t use its lyric capabilities) but other then that its awesome. I can now listen to Pandora, rate my music all, change to the next song all from my system tray.
Great find for Pandora fans!
