    If only I had a car deck that had an input. Streams pretty well even on a weak edge signal.

    I love Pandora Radio and AOL Radio. I don't know how I've lived without these.

    I couldn't agree more. My xm radio and accessories are for sale as we speak. I don't even think I'm going to purchase any more itunes songs. With Pandora and aol radio, you have everything you'll ever need! And it's available wherever you go!

    I keep hearing so much about this Pandora thing, so I thought i'd give it a try this morning (since it's free) and I was pretty impressed. I choose the "Industrial" genre just to see what would happen and one of my favorite Ministry albums (The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste) that I no longer have came up and started playing!

    Pretty cool service. Definitely a keeper!

    Pandora rocks! I just found out about it at the app store and haven't stopped listening since yesterday!
    aol radio isn't too shabby either....I wish the Starbucks channel was still on it though.

    Yeah I always loved Pandora on the PC, but the iPhone version is awesome. I listen to it a lot.

    This could be my favorite app thus far and is a serious threat to satellite radio.

    My vehicle has an auxilary input and the music played fine, even with 1st gen iPhone!

    I've used Pandora for about a year now and I find it the absolute best of all the apps/sites that create custom music channels for you. Pandora doesn't just settle for "artist a is similar to artist b" in populating its channels, they've actually gone to the trouble of rating individual songs by a series of descriptive categories and then they use these song characteristics to figure out what you like or don't like. In my experience there channels 'learn' your tastes much faster and more accurately than similar services.

    I was very, very happy to see they have an app out for the iPhone!
