    That's good news. I have never noticed the 40 hour cap (not that I use it that much anyway). Good thing is that they've removed it, and not shorten it.

    I have a Pandora One account but I honestly barely use it. I will say I've discovered lots of new music with it, but it tends to get annoying because their service almost never figures out what I want to listen to, no matter how many thumbs up or down I give.

    prob a move to compete with spotify.

    Wish Pandora would set up shop in Europe, Spotify's recently added 10 hour cap is pretty bad, and I don't like Last FM, Tho I pay the £5 spotify now, its nice not having adverts.
