Now that Yahoo killed Launchcast, what's a streamer to do?
I was happy. Quite happy for fix, six years? paying my $25/year for commercial free streaming music from Yahoo's Launchcast. No commercials, rate and guide the music to my tastes, neatly hidden away inside yahoo IM so I didn't have to waste real estate with it.
Well, they killed it. Replaced with CBS Radio Network crap. CRAP. Not only that, no paid opt-out for commercial-free. Instead, we get to have a 30-second spot EVERY SECOND SONG. Are you effing kidding me??
So I'm trying last.fm. I'll try Pandora too. I'm not willing to pony up $13/mo for Rhapsody (come ON!) but I need to have streaming music at work. I die without it. Boo for me.
Any others besides last.fm and Pandora I should look at? I want to pick a handful of artists and guide from there (ala Launchcast; it doesn't seem last.fm plays anything outside what you tell it).
