iRadio, successor of GrooveShark?

Grooveshark is one of my favourite destinations on the web to listen to music. Created with adobe flex, it sports an really clear cool UI. It truly doesn’t feel that you are listening to your tunes on the browser.

Jailbroken iOS device has an app
This is not surprising, as the app store guidelines wouldn’t let apps which could have piracy concern. In established markets like US, i believe the music producers gets paid every time a user plays a song on grooveshark.

Grooveshark gets its revenue from ad supported in free version and subscription fee from ad free accounts.

oflate, i have been using their browser based app for touch devices; it is a great experience, one of the few that deliver the promises of HTML5;

iRadio is just another Grooveshark; its the same. I couldn’t see any difference except the potential to kill the latter. This has always happened in the industry for ages; the pioneers of a technology or product losing to the new kid on the block; What’s going to happen to Grooveshark and its likes. Fall is coming!!
