Spotify: everyone loves free, legal music
Sadly I can’t download it to the work laptop (draconian IT policies), but I’m loving it on my home PC. Even better, it’s FREE, legal and all you have to do in return is listen to or view an ad (mostly public service announcements about direct.gov) every 20 mins or so.
What’s more, there’s no buffering and the interface is easy to get the hang of. I suppose in a perfect world you’d be able to access your Spotify account from any online computer, but maybe that’s asking a bit much…
Interested? It’s still in beta but you can sign up for an invite here or stump up for a premium, ad-free subscription at £10/month. Which, considering how much I spend on itunes, is quite reasonable.
