Cons

Con
Not available outside the US

For those that live outside the US, the service is not available to them, which greatly limits users from around the globe.

Con
Limited skips

Pandora makes it very difficult by limiting your playlist to only a specific song or artist. The player also does not allow you to rewind or repeat any songs.

You are only granted six skips per station per hour, and even this is limited to 72 skips per user per day. This is often frustrating if you are trying to focus your playlist on a very specific music selection.

Con
Limited bitrate

Most songs played on Pandora Radio are 128 kpbs bitrate. That being said, the paid version of the service offers songs with a bitrate of 192 kbps.

Con
Frequent advertisements

The free version of Pandora has frequent audio advertisements that are injected every few songs, making the service impossible to use in a party-type setting. However, these can be avoided by paying for the premium edition or by using other ad-blocking software.

Con
Limited artists

There are only 1 million songs on the service. This means there are a lot of artists missing.

Con
Rather intrusive ads

While it's understandable that the free tier will have ads, between video, audio and banners, they can be quite intrusive.

Con
UI is too focused on social media

About half of the UI wastes space on social media info posted by Slacker Radio hosts and DJs. Basically advertisements (but different from their regular advertisements), but in a social media setting.

McAfee at Shape The Future; “Pandora’s box has been opened”

“Pandora’s box has been opened.”

John McAfees’ words echoed through the halls of the Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong. The several hundreds of us that had gathered together on the 20th September were hanging on to his every word.

McAfee had perfectly captured the crypto enthusiasts’ sentiment. Blockchain technology has begun to erode governments’ control over money and will continue to do so. These governments has responded by lashing out in a form of crypto inquisition that parallels the American prohibition. We also learned that many bitcoin exchange executives were not allowed to leave China amidst the recent regulation rulings. Surprisingly, McAfee’s comments did not encourage fear, but inspired a strong sense of community among the crowd. He walked off the stage to a thunderous applause.

Insight Into an Alternative View

McAfee at Shape The Future; “Pandora’s box has been opened”
Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver at Shape The Future, Wednesday.

Shape the Future also provided insights into an alternative view of Bitcoin not shaped by the mainstream r/bitcoin pages at Reddit. Both Jihan Wu and Roger Ver shared the view that the mainstream bitcoin media has been censoring any views that opposes that of bitcoin core and blockstream. Both speeches revolved around the strength of the larger block sizes in Bitcoin cash which makes it better for scaling. Lastly, they believed that the cryptomarkets were highly competitive and that the main reason why bitcoin had been losing market share to altcoins was because of the high transaction fees combined with the slow confirmation times for bitcoin transfers.

Things got really heated during Roger Ver’s speech, especially when someone in the audience shouted that Roger was wrong and that the lightning network would solve slow transaction speed and high fees. Roger responded by telling him not to use Bitcoin Cash if he didn’t like it.

Betting Offer On Bitcoin Cash

During the round table discussion there was a bitcoin cash vs bitcoin core debate. The debate escalated to the point where Bitcoin Cash was compared to dogecoin and that it would be doomed to fail. Roger Ver responded by betting 1 million dollars that Bitcoin Cash would still be around in two years. It was an offer the other participants did not appear keen on accepting.

At the end of the event, they showcased an informative and exciting documentary on the 9 year development of Bitcoin and China’s role in the industry. Here’s a link to the trailer.

What do you think about the future of bitcoin cash vs ”bitcoin core”? Let us know in the comment section below!

Benzinga's Top Upgrades, Downgrades For November 16, 2017

Pandora Media Inc (NYSE: P)'s earnings report Monday contained a mix of good and bad that will likely leave investors debating the company's outlook.

 

The Bullish Take

The streaming music company showed a notable improvement during the quarter in its advertising business as Ad RPMs rose 24 percent year over year, BMO Capital Markets' Daniel Salmon stated in a research report. Looking forward, Pandora can get a "further bump" from the launch of new programmatic capabilities in the back half of 2017 as management is refocusing on its core advertising opportunity.

Meanwhile, local was strong in the quarter and surpassed 30 percent of total ad revenue for the first time ever, the analyst added. Similarly, the company faces a compelling opportunity for incremental expansion moving forward.

The analyst maintains a Market Perform rating on Pandora's stock with a price target lowered from $12 to $11.

The Other Side Of The Story

Canaccord Genuity's Michael Graham maintains a Buy rating on Pandora's stock with a price target lowered from $15 to $14 after the company's earnings report "reinforced" some of the bullish themes. But that doesn't mean there weren't any bearish aspects of the earnings report.

Pandora's listener hours figure was lower by 8 percent on a year-over-year basis while total net subscriber adds were just 150,000 in the quarter, Graham noted. Also, Pandora's decision to decrease its focus on converting ad-supported listeners into paying subscribers played a role in the full year revenue guidance reduction.

On the other hand, this does signal that Pandora is "trying to be smarter about which listeners it pushes towards subscriptions."

At time of publication, shares of Pandora were down 3.36 percent at $8.65.
