LAUNCHcast (Yahoo Music)

What is it?

LAUNCHcast (Yahoo Music): Every deskmonkey needs good tunes. Launch is an online radio (of sorts) where you tailor the kind of music you listen to based on how you rate music. It learns what you like, then delivers it to you. It works extremely well. It's not "on demand," it's more like the radio, where you take what you get, but they give you what you want.


Who makes it?

Yahoo bought them a few years back.

Why is it the killerest?

High quality music, massive music selection, runs in your browser (nothing to download or install), exposes you to all sorts of new stuff you'd never find otherwise.

I listen to Launch 8+ hrs every day. I've gotten more return on this money than any money I've ever spent.

What could be improved?

Ideally I'd like it to be on-demand, but realize for the price that this can't be beat.

How much does it cost?

Free for medium quality music w/ads. $36/yr for no ads, high quality music.
