From next Tuesday the new mobile service will cost £3 a month, a price which will allow users to listen to personalised radio stations - but not to pick out individual songs.

I tried Last.fm and I really disliked what they suggested.

Pandora for me 100% and I even payed for Pandora One...yes that's how much I use it.

40 hours a month is not enough for me.

I use Pandora on my Droid X when it's docked in my car, because it's easier with a better mobile UI in my opinion. I will admit though that Lastfm is overall better when it comes to learning what you like and total selection and I use that at home. Pandora plays the same stuff over and over. For Lastfm to charge for mobile listening will just push more people to Pandora, unfortunately.

Dang, all these take overs, and the corporate money mongers start their thing. Now I am still a little confused. What they are saying is you can still listen to Last.fm free, correct. But they will start playing commercials. If so, thats not too bad. I tend to switch between Last.fm and Shoutcast.
