I have been enjoying Pandora.com a little hulu and a lot of BBC 4 iPlayer content.

Google Music sounds a bit like Pandora in that it also find music like the music you like.


sorry to hijack this thread.? im having problems doing the network install with tunnel bear about TAP-win32 adapter v9, saying it has not passed windows logo testing.? im still on XP

I don't have XP, can't you just click ok and let it install anyway?

That sounds about right. I can imagine the driver is not signed which is why it is complaining, its fairly popular from what I can tell so I don't believe there would be any risks with that.

Thanks to hellonearthisman I now have 4 invites to handout to anyone that would like them.
I also tried out TunnelBear and I must say: it is very good, very fast too.


Thanks cody, finally got around to setting it up with an Astrill VPN that works great on the Galaxy Tab. 

Not sure how much use I'm going to get out of this.  Now the vpn is working directly on the Tab, I might just use spotify instead.

Yeah, I tried it out then I actually remembered what it was and I was less than impressed.

Actually as discussed in other threads, if you don't mind paying $50ish a year than unblock-us works really well. And since it's DNS based rather than a VPN you don't have to worry about traffic.

Out of interest I tried out accessing Pandora and that worked fine. Plus since the DNS changes can be made on the router, if you are using that particular router for your Internet access on your mobile device you can have Pandora running on that. I have checked Android and it's fine. I can't check iPhone since I don't have one.

[EDIT] Worked on my kids iPod touch devices.

Perhaps it's because unless you have a fabulous Internet plan or are very rich, it costs a fortune to get your music into the Google Cloud. Then you have to stream it and for most of us, that is going to eat into our mobile data significantly.

Of course you can restrict usage to when you are on free wifi but what's the point then? You should be free to use it anywhere.

At the end of last month I had plenty of my cap left so i uploaded a few gb of music, and i will continue to do so over time but yeah you wouldn't want to set it going in the background and forget about it as it will eat through your cap fairly quickly!
