Spotify, the super popular music streaming service just had it's much anticipated launch in the US. For us north of the border, we've been figuratively left in the cold, as although Spotify recognizes the value of the Canadian music fan, they have no plans to launch here (most likely a result of our smallish population). But do not worry, Canadians have an alternative, one that has been up and running for some time now, and is just as good, if not better than the afore mentioned. Rdio is a very intuitive to use music streaming service that gives you access to a great, and current music library. Access is gained through a web login, or an app on your favourite smart phone. If you find this intriguing, you can get a free trial here. It's $4.99 per month for web access, or $9.99 per month for the unlimited access, which includes the access through your mobile device.
