We’ll be taking Pandora off the air for a few hours tonight to put up a new release. We’ll be shutting things down around 9PM Pacific. We’ll be down for a few hours as we perform the upgrade and then we’ll be back and better than ever. We’re really looking forward to hearing what you think of our latest batch of upgrades. I’ll post more details when we’re done.
[Update: We’re all finished. Everything went as planned – enjoy the new Pandora!]

    Hi, I just visited your site earlier today. I love it - what a great concept! I showed the website to a couple of my friends and will be using it as well. Keep up the good work! =)

    Oh. My. GOD!! I was just turned on to Pandora by a co-worker and it is blowing me away. What a great concept, and the execution's awesome as well. I am a bona fide music geek and this place feels like home. Thank you so much for what you're doing, and I'm looking forward to seeing the results from the upgrades. ALL HAIL PANDORA!!

    What a great use of AI! Although I spend my time as a writer, now, I came out of the tech industry, and was one of the founders of a company called Borland, and was involved in a number of other companies. I created a product called SideKick and conceived and launched a number of others. Yours is the most unique concept I've seen in a long while, and for me, one of the most valuable. I listen to music when I'm writing, and that's sometimes for as much as ten or twelve hours a day. Pandora allows me to set a mood by defining a station, and then I'm running! Where are you going with this? Podcasts are obvious, and it's certainly easy enough to work out the logistics. I think, though, that there's a much larger market in the wireless world and that must be where you're ultimately heading. One other point ... the copy on your site is extremely well-written and appealing. And the site itself is wonderfully done. Alex Morton

    I really like Pandora! Discovered some time ago by doing a search on Internet music. I LOVE jazz! Been able to plug in some of my favorite jazz artists/stations, and sit back & enjoy some fantastic sounds. Stuff I hadn't heard in a long time! This beats Windows Media music by a lanslide. Plus, you never have to wait for pauses or re-buffering! Keep up the good work!

    Wow! Not surprising that ITunes Music Store advertises! It�s a great pity Norway is not included yet...Norwegians buy a lot of music!! A tremendous amount of music!!!!!

    I too love the site and hope it continues to grow. One mode of expansion that I would suggest is a joint effort with (or simply a new version of) AMG's All Music Guide - www.allmusic.com. It would be great to access each artist's history, albums and songs as the music plays

    Suggestion: If you could also display the lyrics of the songs being played in the background, It would be fantastic.

    Pandora, i've realized how lucrative your business can be especially with all the new ads that are showing up. I've been patiently waiting for your business to go public. I saw your segment on the daily show (or colbert report) and it made me so excited. Please shed light on how long it will be until you go public. I cant wait to invest!
