@spotify vs @rdio
First, I have to say, I love @Spotify. I fell in love with the software while I was visiting a friend in London. He just had all this cool trip-hop queued up and occasionally I'd hear some Brit (named Jonathan) tell me about how I should upgrade to their premium version. Other than those annoying ads, Spotify worked beautifully. You could create custom playlists, fast forward through songs, and even sync it with your iPhone/Android. Life was good... Except for the fact that it's not available in the US. Unfortunately, Spotify seems to be having trouble getting a Visa. For some reason, the US record labels will not allow it to cross over the Atlantic Ocean and well, instead all we're left with are terrible services like Yahoo Music and Flycast.
