Dear Chicagoans –
I’ve been looking forward to the Apple store talk this coming Tuesday in the windy city. Unfortunately, for personal reasons I have be in California on Tuesday. I will be ably replaced by Tom Conrad, our CTO. Tom runs engineering at Pandora, so he’s ultimately the wizard behind the application. I dare you to stump him with technical questions. He’s been with us from the very beginning of Pandora, so he’ll also talk about our history and where Pandora is heading.
Sorry I can’t make it, but I’m already talking with the store about coming in the new year. In the meantime, I encourage you to drop by to meet with Tom. You’ll enjoy his talk. He’s much smarter than I am…
Cheers. Tim (Founder)

    Sorry to hear you won't be attending, but it looks like my trip to Chicago will overlap, so I should be able to make it. =)

    Chicagoeans can easily stump him. All they have to ask is when will Pandora be available for Windows Mobile. Although that may not be very appropriate in an Apple store :)

    Hey Oraclemark, Not a bad idea at all--we're always trying to expand availability and a standalone device would be king. We do have the Chumby and the Squeezebox (though these are not portable) as well as the iPhone (which is not a dedicated device, obviously). But yeah, something portable to be used only for Pandora--it seems inevitable but we'll have to wait and see. Thanks for writing. -A

    Hi folks, @Lucia--Do you mean Christian music sung in Latin? Or Latino artists playing Christian music? Either way I think we might have you covered! If you can't find an artist you're looking for, just write to with your recommendation. You can also try a search for Gregorian chant and see if that's what you're looking for... @Buzzin--I can be kind of lacking in tech acumen, so I totally feel you on this! Take care, A

    When might we expect mobile support on the Blackberry? Seems like it is more than capable of handling it.

    The Blackberry can definitely handle Pandora from a technical standpoint. Availability is usually a question of what the mobile providers want to do. So all I can say for now, is there's several new devices on the horizon, so do stay tuned with us! -A
