I really like this. Though, I don`t know if I`m ready for this change to downloading, servers and computers to playback our beloved music, but this is a good thing. I currently use Pandora.com while I am on the computer. It allows you to create your own radio station. You tell Pandora what artists you want to hear, and Pandora will play not only them, but other artists that play that type of music. Its free and very easy.
I already have a list of 15 cds to buy from artists I never heard of. Very nice. No commercials.
