    Doesn’t that mean it won’t actually “go live” until Friday?

    Another tanker of gasoline to convert Music Industry to total ashes!

    Good luck Mr. Francis Keeling.

    Discount on Premium? It’s only $9.99!! What kind of a discount do people want?

    Sprint should be giving people a year or more of the Spotify service when they bundle. Whatever the term of the phone contract should be the term of the Spotify account. LOCK THEM IN, that will lead to conversion.

    Does anyone else feel weird using another service when you’ve already got so many elaborate, well-developed playlists in your Spotify app? I do and then I miss my playlists. Who wants to recreate that shit?

    When will other services allow you to import those playlists?

        rDio’s user interface is absolutely the shittiest one out there. The new Rhapsody looks pretty awful too. Spotify is ahead of the game on that.

      yeah…i thought about trying out rdio instead… but all my playlists / friends are on spotify

    A partnership with Sprint? That’s a steaming pile.
