Pandora

An Internet radio and music recommendation service that utilizes the Music Genome Project to serve music and comedy content to its listeners.  The Music Genome Project has compiled hundreds of musical details for each song, including melody, harmony, instrumentation, rhythm, vocals and lyrics, which enable Pandora to play songs that share similar musical characteristics with the listener’s favorite songs, artists or musical genres. 

Subscribers are able to further refine their music selections by providing positive or negative feedback for songs chosen by Pandora.  Pandora offers both a free, advertised-supported plan and a paid subscription plan for its listeners.

In addition to providing its subscribers access on the Web via computers and laptops, Pandora is now also available on a variety of smartphones and mobile devices, including Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch devices, Android-powered smartphones, BlackBerry platforms and Windows Mobile devices, as well as on various standalone systems such as Sonos products, Roku DVP radios and newer Web-enabled audio receivers from companies like Yamaha and Sony.
