Re: "Pandora is to pure-play streaming what Apple is to tablet computers. Each is not only the category leader, it is the category."

You continue to show ignorance relative to streaming. If you take into consideration all of the "players" who are not measured by Triton - Spotify, Rdio, Live365, etc. - the numbers would curtail the hubris.

But you keep going ahead with smoke and mirrors, as has the rest of the radio industry since consolidation began.
