    Ive been checking out the Itunes lately some features I like,some not so much

    Itunes

    I like the variety control slider ..hits ,variety,and discovery Pandora Seems to get a bit repetitious
    Itunes times out and goes back to the main menu if it buffers too long Pandora hangs out until the buffering is complete and starts playing again.Although sometimes it will skip the tune
    Itunes commercials arent bad..a couple of spots here and there Been a subscriber for a long time with Pandora but from what I remember the intervals between commercials got shorter
    dont know how many songs I can skip or stations I can create yet with Itunes . have all 100 of the stations and dont like that I can only skip 6 an hour with Pandora
    Itunes Seems limited on the band licensing Pandora has More selection of bands


    The music has been ok on Itunes but it doesnt seem to flow as good as Pandora even though Itunes has the better features.Ill listen to both but probably stick more with Pandora

    Yeah, I'm sure they still can't play Tool, but I have been hearing some APC.

    So has anyone created a station and added artists for variety on iTunes. I did this in Pandora and get a great mix but iTunes Radio just keeps playing songs like one of the bands but not the others. Anyone else notice this?

    My Pandora is currently playing Megadeth on my 80's Non Pop Metal Station. I'm very happy. :up:
