    • I guess I'm not the only one...

    • iTunes Radio is freaking awesome. First, it's just as easy as it is with Pandora to create stations but you can switch from one station to another and back and pick up exactly where you left off. If a song plays that you like and you want to listen to it again ... no problem, you can start over or listen to the song all over again. Freakin' awesome. Second, the total lack of ads is killer (I was already an iTunes Match user so ad-free listening is complementary with my subscription). Third, on the iPhone it is way cleaner of an appearance and experience and use with Siri is awesome. I have already copied all my Pandora stations over to iTunes Radio and honestly don't see myself going back. I haven't deleted the app yet just in case but I have a feeling it's only a matter of time.

      I know Pandora says they aren't worried but they should be. There are about to be millions of less users of Pandora.

      And, yes, I am short Pandora. Putting my money where my belief is and I have all the time in the world for it to pan out.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • The quality blows away pandora, for that reason alone I have no need to go back to P

    • You’re toooooooo funny, very transparent but still funny. LOL

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • would you mind going into greater detail as to what you like about it/ what you dislike about it (it being iRadio)? thanks

      • Another big thing (still learning the new software) is that you get the full screen and navigation (skip songs) when your phone is locked. I obviously can't do that with Spotify or Pandora.

      • Sorry, I just got excited, it took like 15 minutes to download so I was happy when I got my phone up and running.

        I would say the biggest thing is the convenience factor. I just tell my phone "play itunes radio" and it starts blasting.

        The next biggest thing is... I like listening to all genres of music so there's a best selling on itunes category, all the top hits.

        Obviously there's artificial intelligence for the song queue based on what you "favorite" and it's queueing pretty well. This is pretty much a more convenient Spotify with a cleaner navigation. It's nice that it has a purchase song button when each song plays, I'm sure the publishers and music companies will benefit and love this.

        That's my take from my 20 minute user experience! But I'm just blasting my iPhone in my office, back to work!
