Pandora Removes Caps in Redesign

One of the biggest reasons to buy into Pandora‘s “One” service was to avoid being cut off after listening for more than 40 hours per month, but the Music Genome Project decided to remove this listening cap during a redesign of the site and service Wednesday. The $36 per month Pandora One still offers a higher quality media and the desktop playback apps, but will no longer offer any real improvement to mobile listeners aside from removing ads.
Along with service changes, Pandora has redesigned their web system away from Adobe Flash, moving into a very streamlined HTML5 environment. Overall, this has resulted in a much snappier page with far quicker load times and better overall performance on the PC. Music feeds are also created, allowing users to share stations, and will be seen within the next week.
