As Rdio files for bankruptcy, Pandora picks it up for $75 million
I found this little section intriguing:
Using Rdio's technology could radically change the face of Pandora. Thus far, Pandora has focused on algorithmically generated radio stations based on your tastes, but Rdio's service was a full-featured competitor to Spotify that let you play any song or album you wanted from its vast catalog. Pandora has never had specific music on demand features, so this would be a major shift in strategy that would let it compete more directly with Spotify. Pandora says it expects to offer an "expanded listening experience" by the end of 2016, which would presumably include Rdio's on-demand streaming features.
Good/bad, who knows but, since I am currently a Pandora one user I think it will be a good thing for me over time.
