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
Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.~John Kenneth Galbraith, The Age of Uncertainty
