Pirate Radio: I like Launch on Yahoo!. It's a music player that gives you access to a tremendous variety of music. You can rate by band, by album, by and by song, and then it plays the stuff you like, plus things it thinks you'd like based your ratings. Then you rate what it throws at you, and skip it if you don't like it. Iit ends up with a pretty good sense of what kind of stuff you want.

And I don't even use the pay version, which lets you set "moods," so it won't play that upbeat polka you dig if you're in the mood to wallow in The Cure. They just throw an ad at me after about every fourth song, but they're short and sweet and then you're rockin' again.

Good feature. Use and abuse.
