    Would anybody be interested in creating an online petition for having a Pandora app created? I emailed Pandora and they said they have no intentions of creating an app for WP7!!!

    No offense to Pandora fans, but there are other options in the Marketpalce. I really didn't like Pandora and haven't used it in a year or so. I much rather see a petition for Zune's Smart DJ to come to our phones.

    I wish streaming from Marketplace was better optimized for mobile. If I'm not on wi-fi, it blows! 3G is a little better, but not much.

    With the Zune pass do you really need pandora? I've found that with my Zune pass I have no need for any streaming service at all.

    Err, doesn't the zune pass require money to stream music? Whereas Pandora is free (for 40 hours a month).

    That's a good point. I guess since I have a Zune Pass (unlimited stream/downloads hours + 10 free download to own per month) I don't need Pandora. But it's a great option for those that do not. With a lot of users converting from iTunes, I wonder how many actually got a Zune Pass?

    1) I would sign a petition to get Pandora on WP7.

    2) What format does the "10 free downloads to own" come in?

    10 free downloads are in MP3 format
    Most songs purchased using points/credit card are DRM free (or so I've read).
    Songs in WMA format are DRM protected.
