I'm still on just the free service, but I may well end up paying. I'm at the point in my life when I'd pay for a service over a material good most of the time. There's no need for me to go carting everything I own everywhere I go when I can put it all on a computer or ipod instead (with appropriate backup where needed). I think the reason services like this succeed is just that -- they recognize that consumers' wants and needs are changing.
edit: My god it even has a FEED for your friends' latest playlists, artists, etc. I didn't notice that before. This is great.
VP - great to see you around. Naive question of the day: how do you do the shared music/playlists amongst friends?
