This year streaming music service Pandora is everywhere at CES — in the tablets, mobile phones, flat-screen TVs, and even the autos.
Pandora, which delivers customized Internet radio to 75 million users, free and ad-supported, has made a slew of announcements —particularly in the auto space.
Pandora's streaming music will now be available in Toyota and BMW's Mini cars. The system is also available from a slew of TVs, as well as after-market radio developers. And of course it's available on any of the Android tablets or smartphones here in the form of the company's app.
I sat down with Pandora's founder and Chief Creative Officer Tim Westergren at CES to talk about the company's recent growth to a new kind of ubiquity. He's here at CES taking meetings with new and potential future partners — fifty meetings in total. But with distribution to 200 Internet-connected devices he may be busier celebrating their reach than explaining his service to new potential partners.
