    It doesn't sound like you can put this music on your music player but it is free and that's the headline in Newsweek. Has anyone tried this out? How do you like it?

    So what? Radio is free. iTunes have free podcasts with or without ads.

    This requires an internet connection and a computer. Not iPod / iTunes rival.

    Not sustainable as a business with that ad duration. Radio give much longer ad time. All subscription based music business fail because most users would actually pay more in the long term, paying every month FOREVER then just to buy their music.

    I have been using Spotify for over a month now and I really like it. When I'm listening to music on my MacBook, it is now more frequently with Spotify than iTunes.
