1272. Music Streaming

Rick asked: I've heard about this music service called Spotify. What is it? What can it do for me? Is it worth paying for?


One things for sure those recorded CD's, those plastic discs, are on their last legs. They are going the way of the VCR and the cassette. These days if you want new music the place to get it his online and there are number of different music services that provide radio like streaming services for online music.

One of them is Spotify.com and actually happens to be the one I am using most often. You can use the free version of Spotify but it's ad supported and somewhat irritating.  

If you give them a little bit of money per month you can listen to almost any song or CD that's ever been recorded as far as I can tell. They have millions and millions of tracks available for listing for a small monthly fee.Based on the level of service you pay for it may be able to store tracks locally see you can listen to music off-line as well. You might also investigate Pandora.com another competitor to Spotify. In any case this is the future of online music.
