Can you help me discover more music that I'll like?

"Whenever you buy something on Amazon there are those handy little lists that tell you what other people like you are buying. Sometimes they throw up some fascinatingly obscure choices. You like the Will Young album? Why not try a little Pink Grease? Some 65daysofstatic? Others just make you recoil in horror.

Working on this hit-and-miss premise is Pandora, a fantastic little device that lets you make up your own free-to-listen radio station. The idea's pretty simple: put your favourite band in to the search, and Pandora suggests a few other bands you might like. You rate the ones you approve of, slate the ones you don't, and keep adding search options until your playlist is crammed with goodies.
