Progress? Everything I read and hear tells me that downloading is slowly being replaced by streaming: Pandora, Spotify and now Apple. Personally I like having a little more control over what I listen to. And no algorithm can tell me exactly what I like even with 52,000 plus songs in my iTunes folder as a guide.

I am also in the process of filling out another that I call “Missed Hits” (that one may take awhile). The one thing I like about streaming playlists is the ability to add to them on a daily basis. By the way I picked Spotify because there is a “free” element if you don’t mind the occasional ad. Personally I prefer the $9.99 per month package that is ad-free. Here’s a link to my playlists:
