    Some news came out today that might impact our EU owners. It appears Rdio is shutting down its service and selling off assets to Pandora. It looks like Rdio is about to file for bankrupcy protection and will cease to provide service once the transaction with Pandora is complete. Pandora intends to take advantage of the assets by late 2016, to give some sort of timeline.

    I wonder how this will affect current owners. Tesla might need to make a similar agreement with Pandora or Spotify, I suppose. Both of which may be good news for US owners. Maybe we could get in on that too.

    I'm very happy with Pandora and would be great to have that app in the car.

    Sounds like a good opportunity to fix the buggy feature-deficient Rdio player! This could be good news.

    That's what we have in Australia too. Pretty buggy though. Many songs don't play all the way through and just hang even in good signal areas.

    I would love to see more choice in the car. Spotify and Apple Music would be good, just to name a few.

    God I hope they would then bring Pandora to US-spec cars too! :)
