Rdio Updated with Highly Personalized Radio Stations
Rdio today announced a new and improved Station function, offering radio stations that include a number of personalization features. For example, users are able to listen to stations that have been created based on personal and friend preference, and the whole system is designed to facilitate better music discovery.
With the update to Stations, Rdio has also included You FM, which uses Taste Profiling technology from The Echo Nest to create a personal station based on listening history, track voting, Facebook likes, Twitter follows, and more.

This service is amazing though. I've had it for about two years and love it.

Love the design aesthetics of their app, but Mog is better in almost every other way - especially when it comes to recommending new music to you (their "similar artists" section is fantastic.) I keep hoping Rdio will roll out something like this but it appears Mog has the market cornered on this - and that's why I'll stick with them.

I still completely love Rdio.
I find the Radio Station analouge a bit odd though. "James FM". FM? It's not being broadcast on FM! Why not AM?! Even "Radio James" would be a bit weird as it's not on a radio. Rdio James?
The James Station is the least offensive. Yet it's still not a station.
It's basically just a playlist right? The James Playlist?

Haven't tried this yet, but love Rdio. In this new version they also tweaked the UI so the Now Playing bar at the bottom of the screen and the Now Playing page are a heavily blurred version of the cover art. Makes the now playing bar much easier to identify and is a nice touch overall.
I love the app's UI, but it is a little bit confusing to use at first.
