A week before Apple’s September event announcing the new iPhones, I renewed my subscription to Pandora. I’ve been a happy Pandora subscriber for the past year and listen while working on my Mac. I decided to pay the $36 annual fee last year because I don’t like the ads, plus I wanted the higher bit-rate streaming for better audio.
Now I wish I would’ve waited until I tried iTunes Radio. Not only is iTunes Radio turning out to be my preference, but if you subscribe to iTunes Match, like I do, you can eliminate ads, have unlimited iCloud music storage and better sound quality for just $25 per year.
