If you haven't yet experienced Spotify, well, you really have to re-evaluate your commitment to music. Spotify is an incredibly on-demand streaming music service that is sweeping the nation, after having swept a lot of international consumers over the past few years. Spotify is incredibly cool, but it keeps getting better. It's taking on such software as Rhapsody and Pandora and honestly, while it's a different animal altogether, it's very compelling. Instead of being a relational, synthetic, adaptive Internet radio, Spotify grants you access to exactly the music you want, when you want it. Today, Spotify announced that the Boxee Box by D-Link is now making Spotify available on it's platform. Delivering playlists and enabling consumers to discover new tracks and artists from your TV, Spotify provides access to over 15 million tracks. With a premium Spotify account, Boxee Box users can now do even more:.

Don't mess with the free version beyond just checking out the interface. The advertising will turn you off.
It's cool to see it start to integrate ... but, I bought a Boxee and returned it. Found it cumbersome and kinda..well...stupid;
Love it on my iPhone. Listen to music and then when I call comes in it dims the audio and I press the headphones to answer. After the call is over the music comes back on. The playlists I have set to Offline play even in the car
I'm perfectly happy with Pandora - I don't need to manually waste time on selecting music - pandora has pretty good engine able to guess my preferences based on very little input
p.s.: Anesidora plugin for google chrome makes Pandora even better
How does spotify compare to MOG?
Count me as one of the addicted also. I think i spent an hour with my wife the first night I got it thinking up of odd and esoteric artists like Thin White Rope and Greg Brown and instantly having access to their stuff.
I doubt I could reliably tell the difference between a Spotify stream and the original CD.
As far as Facebook goes, I just click on 'Private Listening' and I'm not on FB.
Of course, YMMV
