Any down sides to this. Or good sides. Thank you. Well, I have your answer. Pandora Radio: Pros: >Free >Does a good job of picking out good songs. . Most of the time. >You can thumb-down songs so that they never play again. >You can thumb-up songs so that they play more often. >You can preview songs. >High quality streams >You can make a radio "playlist" to separate your relaxation music from your exercise/gaming music. Cons: >You can only listen to 40 hours a mo for free. >They recently added 30-second audio ads mostly all now and then. >Sometimes the variety decreases drastically. >You cannot re-play or re-wind songs. >After 1 hour of inactivity, Pandora will automatically pause (which may be considered a good thing if you aren't listening to it and don't want your hours to run out). _____________________________ Alternate site: GrooveShark: Pros: >Free for unlimited hours. >You can search for, re-wind, and re-play songs. >No audio ads. >You can make a playlist consisting of songs that you choose. >You can click on the "radio" option if you want to listen to more songs. Cons: >Not as good quality as Pandora (on certain songs). >The "thumb up/down" function does not work as well on this site as it does on Pandora, since there are alternate versions of songs that can play. >The "radio" seems to play a lot of Black Eyed Peas (which may be a good thing, but I personally don't like their music). Those are the two music sites that I use the most. I obviously prefer Pandora, but once the 40 hours runs out, I'm forced to listen to GrooveShark (which isn't that bad of an alternative).
