This is great for me. I recently had to cancel my Rdio subscription but now I can keep using the service. I still get the feeling Rdio is under intense pressure in what seems to be a cutthroat industry. They've had layoffs recently and The Verge article indicates Rdio's change to a freemium business model is in response to Spotify. That appears to be the case. I'm starting to wonder how much longer they're going to be around.
