I was surprised to see that the free app required a paid subscription in order to work and then I left it alone.
But I had failed to test drive their free, desktop software and after installing it yesterday (July 28, 2011), I have been blown away at the concept and depth of music available.
Their free account is like going to a library, music store, iTunes, Napster (back in the day if you can remember it), and any other vault of music and you can legally listen to for free!!!
Spotify is so cool and great that the price of the paid subscription begins to seem reasonable if you want to take the music on the road with you away from a desktop computer. With a laptop with wifi access, you will not miss anything still!!
My Facebook account (http://ping.fm/3UokR) is linked to my Spotify account and if you want to exchange new and old music discoveries and playlists, just look me up!
The service has an old school benefit where you will not mind someone walking off years ago with one of your favorite vinyl records, cassette, or CDs if the album is available on Spotify.
It is a huge time saver since one never considers taking the time to digitize music found online.
Spotify connects and imports music and playlists from iTunes as well.
I believe Spotify benefits the various record labels to know exactly who is listening to their music.
It is a win-win-win and goes far beyond any music site I have seen thus far. You may be able to find recommendations elsewhere, but nobody is offering to hear full catalogs of previous and new releases uncut.
Check it out and let me know what you find that blows you away!!!

The American perspective simply never would have created Spotify due to how artists can be tossed aside mercilessly.

In this new musical era, playlists & set lists increase the value of DJs and other highly regarded music connoisseurs!

Spotify already feels like an old friend that asks if you ever really, really heard music before like this? Education!!

Discovered Netflix was having audio problems on specific, streaming movies. Good time to short the stock!
Posted by Roney Smith at 9:10 PM
Is there a @Netflix streaming workaround when there is no dialogue? Really considering cancellation now:(

Just heard the news about Amy Winehouse's death via CNN. No rehab intentionally is virtually suicide sadly enough.

Mableton is 88F and feeling like 96F from the heat index, so beware if you're outside for any long periods of time!

The store may be cutting corners elsewhere beside financial decisions!! #carvel #Smyrna #icecream
Posted by Roney Smith at 6:11 PM
Being restricted to a cash-only purchase upon entering a store triggers the wrong bells even if cash was my intent!

We're having to pace them like a NASCAR rain delay even though they can take the pool w/o any breaks for rest.

Google+ slams on the brakes like The Flintstones before you learn what a seat belt is:) It is a social media monster!!
Posted by Roney Smith at 11:54 PM
Google+ does work much better on Safari than Mercury on iOS I've seen tonight.
Posted by Roney Smith at 9:48 PM
I'm on Google+ now and need a tutorial or simply moving to a desktop versus iPhone I think.

The best way to find a missing or lost item is to buy a replacement!! #quantum
Posted by Roney Smith at 5:25 PM
I was glad that I paid by credit card versus cash:) #retail #returns
Posted by Roney Smith at 5:23 PM
Best Buy accepted a receipt-less return today that I am still grateful for. I know they found the proof, but there was no hassle at all.
