Turntable.fm To Add Pandora-Like Online Radio
Buried in an article on Turntable.fm's flat-lining traffic and overall sophomore slump was a tidbit that won't help Pandora's battered stock price – Turntable is planning its own version of Pandora-style online radio under the code name Kiwi.
"Inspiration struck during a New Zealand vacation – it will be something like Pandora, but with playlists based on the recommendations of the user’s Turntable friends," writes Inc.'s Burt Helm. "This will attract passive listeners interested in hearing friends’ favorites, just not chatting or collecting points in a live Turntable room."
No details yet on when Turntable will launch the new offering
