Multimedia, AV Earlier today I bought a $10 album from iTumes, which I wish I hadn't. The reviews were glorious, and the previews not indicative. Listening to the album all I could hear was hipster drivel. Obviously, I wanted my money back. Well, bad luck. iTunes won't give refunds. I tweeted about it, and a friend suggested Rdio. Rdio, a brand new streaming service, currently offers a 3-day free trial -- without the need for a credit card. For $5 let's you stream their huge library on your desktop via an Adobe AIR app or browser, and for $10 let's you also stream from Android/BBerry/iOS, plus be able to sync your music with you offline on these devices. Unlike and Pandora, Rdio let's you stream on-demand.

RE: Spotify

I prefer Spotify: it has a decent native client for Linux, OS X and Windows as well as phones. Their music collection is also fairly big.

Of course, Spotify is currently not available in the US, but I have seen rumors that it soon will. Ever since it has been available in The Netherlands, I have been a premium member.

Now, if they could only make such a service for movies.

You should keep an eye on It's currently available in Nordic countries only but may be expanding elsewhere in Europe.
