Spotify has forever changed the way we listen to music, but what exactly is it? Wikipedia probably sums it up best by describing it as a Swedish-founded, UK-headquartered DRM-based music streaming service. It originally started in 2008 and had staggering success in Europe before finally arriving in the United States. On 14 July 2011, Spotify launched its U.S. service, which was a major milestone after delays and years of negotiation with the four major record companies. Currently, the service in America has over 2.5 million paying subscribers — a 25% increase since September, when they began to let Facebook members share and stream music. More than 4 million Facebook users signed up for a Spotify account within six weeks of the service becoming available there, 500,000 of them paying $10 a month. It is currently available in 12 countries (not Canada yet), boasting a catalog of 15 million available songs. Read more
