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.

I've been using Spotify for almost two years now. I really like the lightweight multi platform client. I love the recent additions of the social and local library features.

It's awesome to be able to drag and drop a song or album over to the person I want to recommend it to. And it's fun to be able to look at what my friends have been listening to lately. The local library feature could be improved a lot though, but it's nice to finally have it there.
