    the reason digital media types were created was essentially to give you the choice to listen to what you want.....

    I thought the exact same way before trying it out, but I was completely wrong. Its gives you music very similar to what you select. I found quite a few new bands/emcees or songs by people I knew, and just never herd. And theres days where I would rather my own music as well, but if I dont have it with me, Pandora will do fine.

    How do you hear new music?</P>


    [/quote]</P>


    depends. I listen to both rock and hip hop....</P>


    rock music, usually word of mouth, or sites online. even ppl on facebook share new stuff that i see

    hip hop i go to a few websites that posts all the leaks, new tracks, etc....and you can stream everything, and you can usually download all the non album stuff directly from them also.

    to be completely honest, the only band on the radio that i like is probably foo fighters. all the other rock i like wouldnt be played on FM (maybe satellite, though i wouldnt know really)</P>

    ^--This

    Pandora is "decent" at figuring out the kind of music you like as long as you give it some input (like the sounds you like and pic a few channels based on albums/artist/songs you like) It will find music just like that (a long with playing your favorite tracks as well)

    It's good, I mean unless you don't think you'll ever get board of listening to the same songs on your iPod over and over again for the next 60 years.

    plus sometimes I like to be surprised by something I like, instead of knowing exactly what's coming on next all the time.

    I'm willing to bet I've been pirating at least as long as you :P that doesn't change the fact that while I'm at work or on a long road trip I still like to just put Pandora on and go/work.

    I find new songs because of it all the time and I get nice surprises throughout the day.

    Limewire was probably my start, maybe a little before that, late 90's so maybe not quite as long :P it's all Torrents now (or Direct Download depending) point is I don't particularly want to know what's coming on next all the time and I like finding new stuff....so I prefer Pandora to my ripped playlist.
