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 Last.fm and Pandora, Rdio let's you stream on-demand.

Wimp in Norway

In Norway we have a similar alternative called Wimp.
Also Adobe Air, and iPhone and Android-apps. 99 NOK (15 USD)/month, the phone-apps support offline-storage as long as you subscribe, and unlimited streaming. What I like about it is the album suggestions, ratings from different websites and newspapers, playlists when there are music festivals etc. etc. made by the people who run it. The only downside is that, as always, not all artists allow streaming, and I can't figure out why.
