    Haha, I'm honestly not! I just really believe in the product and even though it's not perfect, I think it is going to change the way we listen to and consume music.

    How is this similar or different to Grooveshark? Legality? Method of streaming/storing files? Selection and organization of the selection (no duplicates, standardized mp3 quality)?

    I'm not sure of specific bugs, but it tends to crash a lot.

    Me too! Love the playlists. I actually enjoy the mobile app more. One of the better $15 I spend a month.

    It's much cleaner and a better user experience, but I think the concept is pretty similar.

    Just as a follow up:

    I sprung for the premium subscription for the hell of it. What can I say, I'm a sucker. I'm running the mobile app on my Droid without a problem. I'm going to try the pandora-like add on that Rf suggested.

    I've been using the free service for the last week or so and sprung for the premium service today. Love it.

    This is pretty nifty. Thanks for posting the link -- I told all my friends.

    I just started using Spotify but I like it so far. Whoever said the interface reminds them of Limewire -- wow. Holy cow, it looks so much like it. The greatest thing about this so far for me is the shared music/playlists among friends. It's all right there. To me this is the void that it really fills in music services.

    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?

    Well, I connected to my friends via Facebook. I was wary of this at first, but then realized that I don't have to publish anything ON facebook, it will just automatically connect me to my FB friends with Spotify accounts if they've allowed it. So that was nice. And once I did that, there's just a feed that comes up every time I open spotify (on the "What's new" tab) that shows what people have published, shared, etc. Which is great. You can share and subscribe to these playlists too. And if your friends aren't on Facebook, you can look them up via their usernames (if you know them) by entering spotify:user:username in the search box. So if you add me, for example (my username is the same as mine on here), you will see all the playlists I share.

    And then a friend of mine actually started a collaborative playlist that anyone with whom she shares it can contribute to. I'm not sure how she did it, but all i have to do is drag songs in from my itunes. You can also choose to share any playlists you already have set up on your itunes. It is supereasy.

    Does all of that make sense? I am getting obsessed with spotify.

    edit: oh, and also, besides the What's New feed, once you've connected with friends, you can also click on them individually and see playlists/songs they've shared.

    The recent Facebook integration with Spotify has been awesome.
