Why Spotify won’t replace Pandora any time soon

Spotify is an up and coming music player that relies on a combination of peer-to-peer sharing and server hosting to deliver the users choice in music, quickly. It's power lies in the fact that the user can specify what he or she listens to, as opposed to Pandora Radio, which allows the user to listen [...]

Struggling with an Addiction

Wikipedia characterizes an Addictive Personality as an individual who is predisposed to addictions.

Enjoy. http://www.npr.org/templates/event/embeddedVideo.php?storyId=142242654 Make sure to submit your runs [...]

Game On!

It is official, I am registered and paid for my first official 5k race. On December 3rd, Ellie and I will be taking part in the Medaille College Reindeer Run!
