Pay $25 a year, get all of your tracks up in the cloud either by having them recognized or by uploading them, and then you are free to download them to your iPhone at a moments notice. It seems the service isn't exactly perfect with a frustrating glitch being discovered that converts explicit versions of songs to clean versions.

LOL "not a feature"
Guess they only have the radio compatible versions available.
Replacing “Rock’n’Roll Outlaw” from Rose Tattoo by “Rock’n’Roll Gipsy” from Mrs. Streisand?
That’d be more than a little annoying if one were upoading uncensored Stephen Lynch songs to your cloud account…
This gives us all a clue that they aren’t storing your data,
but rather just a catalog of what you have and are therefore
allowed to play back…
For many this wouldn’t be an issue.
but for those that want to “cloud” their live bootleg collection, etc…
I don’t get the point of cloud services and they aren’t helping me a bit with crap like this…
[QUOTE=AllanDeGroot;2623091]I don’t get the point of cloud services [/quote]It is supposed to be a cash cow.

Well, you are on the wrong side of the fence
My point is that THEIR “stated goal” is to sell me something
Selling me something presumes my buying it is voluntary.
Their tactics and behavior are more likely to inspire people to DDoS them
and crash their service, than patronize their service.
It is the digital equivelent of introducing a new brand of Bio-Fuel made
exclusively from the body fat Club-killed baby seals, marketed to GreenPeace members… they have what we’d call a “Flaw” in their buisness model.
Above and beyond the normal “flaw” of a cloud service.
