Steve Sapka: ‘Have you tried Pandora? Pick all your favorite artists and it plays a mix for you – free!’
☞ I’m not sure Pandora is what I’d name a box I wanted people to open, but it’s most cool nonetheless. You set up ‘channels’ – I set up one for Tom Rush – and it offers music it thinks you will like by other artists as well. Like your own private commercial-free radio station with a DJ who knows just what you like. You can thumbs up or down its selections and it gets smarter. I liked Bob Dylan of course and Gordon Lightfoot – but who’s this David Bromberg? Ralph McTell? Well, turns out I liked them, too.
And all this can be streamed on your iPhone. So I set up a channel for high energy stuff to use exercising. And then some more channels – hey, this is free and easy, perfect for the challenging economic times ahead.
Quote of the Day
It's unbelievable what happened, said Jack Brod, who has operated Empire Diamond and Gold Co. in New York's Empire State building for over 50 years. When gold was over $700 an ounce and silver over $40 everybody wanted to buy it. Today nobody does.~August 12, 1981 Deseret News
