Pyrcast for Mac is a simple, clutter-free Pandora app

Pyrcast for Mac is a Pandora desktop application. It integrates Pandora's streaming radio service with the Mac desktop -- and also eliminates Pandora's ads. Pyrcast is minimalist and clutter-free, letting you focus on the music and not so much on the app delivering it. Pyrcast lets you listen to stations from your existing Pandora account and features station management, song history, album...

8tracks music site adds easy genre filtering, still fantastic as ever

Earlier this week, I wanted to see what it feels like to be an American online -- you know, to explore all of those websites only Americans get to play with, like Hulu, Pandora, and Slacker. So I signed up for a high-speed proxy service and started cruising around. What I discovered was actually quite a letdown. It turns out that both Pandora and Slacker have really, really irritating commercials...

Pandora wants to go beyond the web to any Internet-connected device

Pandora, the popular music streaming service, is finally making a profit. The ten-year-old company is no stranger to problems and hurdles to overcome in the music industry, but is finally making a turn for the better. So what does Pandora want to do with this renewed success? They want to become a household name and be found on any device they can put themselves on. To keep their success alive,...

Roku launches Channel Store, bringing web content to your TV

If you've ever considered buying a Roku, the set-top streaming video box for your TV, you've got at least 10 new reasons today. Roku just launched its Channel Store, featuring 10 free content sources. You may have heard of some of them before: Flickr and Facebook Photos are available, as well as music from Pandora, and web shows from heavy hitters like Revision3 and Leo Laporte's TWiT.TV. On the...

Pandora finally gets social sharing, via Facebook and Twitter

There's a lot to love about the Pandora streaming music service. If you put together just the right combination of musical ingredients, you've got the modern-day equivalent of the perfect mixtape. Sending your brilliant Pandora station to a friend or 2 (or 200!) just got easier, with the addition of Facebook and Twitter sharing. Until now, the only option for sharing your streaming radio...

Online music streaming / discovery site Pandora have released their 'Pandora Mobile' Android application in the Android Market (for U.S. users). Pandora Mobile allows you to create a personalised radio stream to listen to directly on your device.

Pandora's desktop app for subscribers gets an update

One of the many perks the Pandora streaming music offers its subscribers is access to the Pandora One desktop app for Windows and Mac. That perk just got a lot cooler, now that Pandora One 2.0 is out. It adds some features that are pretty essential to a good desktop music player, like easy access to your song history, and a progress bar. I'm not going to ask why it didn't have a progress bar...

Microsoft to launch internet radio service?

A few months ago web-based music search engine and streaming media service SeeqPod dropped a hint that the company was working with Microsoft on... something. Now UK paper Telegraph is reporting that Microsoft is planning to launch a streaming music service similar to Spotify, Pandora, or Last.fm. Microsoft could launch the service by the end of July. Users would be able to either stream songs...

Pandora stays alive by reaching workable royality rates

There's been a lot of news about the stalled negotiations between online radio providers, artists and record labels, but that seems to have come to an end, and at least one online music site is very happy about it. Pandora, a popular music player and recommendation service, was at the top of the list of possible casualties in the royalty battle, but thanks to the new agreement - which requires...

Pandora announces premium features and new desktop app

Since pundits started speculating last year that expensive royalty fees for streaming music would kill Pandora, it seems the company has consistently rolled out more creative, money-making features. Now premium subscribers can get access to better stream quality, the new Pandora One desktop app, and an ad-free experience for $36/year. That fee will also get rid of one of the most annoying...

Pandora internet radio adds lyrics... for some songs

Internet radio stations Pandora and Last.fm have been in the news a lot over the last year for removing features - like the ability for users in most of the world to listen to free music streams. So it's nice to see Pandora launch a raft of new features, even if they're only available to users in the US. At the top of the list of new features is support for lyrics. Pandora has partnered with...

New boxee alpha brings Pandora, XUL-browsing and an API

At the boxee meet-up in NYC tonight, the team is unveiling a new bleeding-edge alpha that adds lots and lots of cool stuff to my personal favorite media center solution. The latest release, which should be available as you read this (or very shortly thereafter), brings: Pandora support A new boxee API A new XUL-based browser to get around the Hulu nastiness A PBS App Box app from BoxeeHQ ...

Internet on TV updates: Pandora for Vudu, iPhone Boxee remote

For the last decade or so people have been talking about how eventually the TV screen and computer monitor will merge. Over the last year or two, we've actually started to see that happen. More and more people are watching TV on their computers either using TV tuner cards or internet video from sites like Hulu. And computer apps like Boxee and set top boxes like Vudu are making it easier for...

Pandora adds brief, infrequent audio ads

Web based music streaming service Pandora has begun streaming something in addition to music: ads. Now, you might not notice the ads at first. They're only about 15 seconds long, not every user will be hearing them right away, and Pandora CEO Tim Westergren says the average user will only hear about one ad every two hours. But the move does represent a potential new revenue stream for Pandora,...

Soundflavor gives you a ridiculous number of ways to find music

There are plenty of ways to find music that meets your tastes on the internet. Last.fm, Pandora, and similar music discovery services will recommend new music for you based on the songs you like. YouTube is filled with music videos from popular and not so popular artists. And music search engines like SeeqPod make it easy to find songs and videos. Now if you take all of those music discovery...
