-for you 'net radio nerds: Jango might be your ultimate fantasy of Pandora meets the Facebook. (For more details and a free trial, read THAT TRUNCHEON THING's shpeel of it.)

I only fooled around with it for a minute and thought it was alright; the songs seemed repetitive and there was not very much variety. Again, this was only an initial opinion
