Anyone using it?

I am and it's a great way of listening to free music that you might actually enjoy.

Give it a try.

It's the best thing on the internet ever. But as long as you have to pretend to be an American in order to use it, I'm out.

I just put in a random zip code picked up on Google.

Small price to pay for unlimited free 128kbit music that works out what you like and what you don't.

Pandora is not a radio stn in the traditional sense.

You tell it a song or artist your like and it streams a never ending supply of music of the same genre. Therefore everyone gets a selection tuned to their personal taste.

I prefer http://www.last.fm - better recommendations algorithm once you've set up your "scrobbler" and they're British.

Well, if we're in to recs, then I'd still suggest having a look at what used to be launch.com, which for many years I felt one of the best, though now owned by Yahoo music.yahoo.com (http://music.yahoo.com) and a bit more commercial, hence max 5 skips on the free customised radio (unless you delete your cookies :)), and ads before playing the videos.

Still the range is still quite good, including perhaps music for people like Chico (http://mv.us.music.yahoo.com/player/default.asp?cid=1&ps=0&vid=2144298&bw=129&tw=LaunchVideoTarget&pv=11). :)

Seems to be blocking traffic based on IP location now. Either that or I've raised suspicions registering using a .org.uk email address when I apparently live at the Kennedy Space Centre.

I wondered why I couldn't get into the globalpandora site either this morning. Try http://last.fm instead as it's not bad.
