Reading a post Death By Lawyer: 10 Cool Sites We Miss and was interested to find Pandora listed there.
Had been using Pandora for a while. Nice project that creates virtual radio stations based on your tastes in music. But it seems that has all gone done the tube for non-USA Internet citizens.
Previously Pandora only asked users to enter a US ZIP code to verify that they were US citizens. (I wonder how many users had a Wikipedia ZIP code?) As of a few days ago Pandora has been forced to filter by IP address. So now when you try to use the service you get a Pandora restricted page.
I am sorry to see this service go, and the Pandora people are sorry as well.
