A Little Bit of Everything
 
Today I found myself studying in the library at my college listening to Pandora on my iPod Touch.  After quite a few songs, they hit with an advertisement (usually about buying Pandora Plus).  The advertisement was for this new application call "rdio" (pronounced "r-dee-oh").  The advertisement stated that you can listen to any song you want, at anytime.  you could even sync some songs within the app to play offline.  So I decided to download it and see what it was all about.  I created up an account with them and was soon searching for some of my favorite songs.  Immediately I tried out the offline syncing to see how it is.  As I'm writing this, I am listening to one of the songs offline.  It's a great app, but one downside is that after the trial (7 days from when you sign up) you can opt to continue listening for $4.99.  As a college student, I just don't have that kind of money to dish out.  (Instead you should use web app Grooveshark.com which I've talked about before) 

Besides the price, it's a great product.  Plus if you have a few email accounts, you can just keep signing up different ones...then it turns into a few weeks of listening to free music offline.
