My first impression of Pandora – it rocks! After using it for about a day, I am totally impressed by this internet radio station. You can create upto 100 music stations by typing in the name of the song or artist. The station then tries to play similar songs/artists. It is a part of something called th Music Genome Project which is a database of sorts to link similar sounding songs. I know Yahoo does or tries to do something similar but I have never really liked it and it has always been a frustrating experience trying to stream audio from Launchcast (maybe because I was using the free version). Pandora has it’s own built in player for the browser, so you don’t have to worry about downloading 3rd party players or plug-ins. The streaming sound quality is better than any radio station I have listened to on the internet and I haven’t expereinced any buffering till date.
