Liking it so far. I think the only thing I dislike is not being able to see Music/Podcasts at once because I'll forget I have new Podcasts to listen to.

This is the way to go pre-streaming service in 2013 though. Continue to blend into Rdio's design

Dear Apple: Please buy Rdio.

Right? The designs seem to be meshing together, Rdio is only losing traction (it feels like, at least) to Spotify even though they're greatly improving, and 100B in da bank.

Please.

There was a rumor for a while Microsoft was gonna make a play for Rdio. I think Apple's belief is they can do what Rdio is doing themselves -- and with the iCloud streaming and everything now -- we might be getting close to that kind fo thing from iTunes.

I'm now using Rdio for about 99% of my music listening on a daily basis. I only use iTunes to keep track of podcasts, play pre-release albums, and as a media server for TV/Movies on my Apple TV. Besides that, it just kinda sits open most days. The Rdio catalog is just too perfect to add a bunch of shit to my queue - hit play - and forget about it.

What about when you're not at home?

Maybe I don't do as much music exploration as you do (well I'm sure I don't since my paying job is entirely non music related) but for me I can't fathom having to rely on a cellular connection in order to stream a song. Even with LTE now on the iP5 one day I'll be sitting at work and have full bars and the next I'll have no signal.

I think if we got to a point where our cellular networks were as strong as say, Japan's, I could see only using Rdio or Spotify for myself. As of now though the idea of relying on ATT in the subway sounds terrible.

So you would definitely recommend Rdio over Spotify? I've been considering subscribing to one and I can't make up mind.

I, personally, greatly prefer Rdio.
