Price Points

I have been messing around with various music-generating apps, mostly for bicycling to. I started with Pandora, though I have not really been able to train a music genome to find me perfect new music. Anyway, it's free, but advertises the upgrade for $36 a year. I don't buy the upgrade, because $36 is a little more expensive than I'm convinced I want yet.

Yesterday, someone mentioned Grooveshark somewhere, so I went and investigated that. Hey, it lets you actually pick songs (as opposed to Pandora, which insists that it is not allowed to do so except randomly), which is a bonus. But it seems to be crashier, which is a minus, and has weird wrong music errors. Anyway, it's free, but advertises the upgrade for $3 a month. Hey, I think, $3 is cheap, I should probably upgrade. Much more reasonable than that expensive Pandora.

It takes about a day for the shoe to drop. Sigh.
