Apparently coming to the US this week. Anyone with an early invite should post here and brag? Share?

TT only did that as a way to stem the onslaught.  they had a limited amount of money to pay royalties with, so once they gt popular they needed to control how many people got in.  FB provided an easy way to do that.  supposedly TT has recently secured a bunch of venture financing, so they'll be opening up the floodgates soon.

you do realize you can un-friend people you aren't interested in, right?  it sorta mimics real life that way  ;D

Anyone get an invite yet? I signed up on the website a few weeks ago but nothing yet. Am curious to see how the "upload your own music" function works...does it attempt to "match"?

Got Haggis?

i didn't get an invite yet, but i had created an account with a fake UK address when the service first launched (and used a UK proxy to access it).  I just changed my address to my real US address and can now access my account :)

if you don't want to wait, you can opt to pay $4.99/month for unlimited streaming for $9.99/month for their premium service which also has a mobile app....no invite code needed for those services

Got my invite, but I need to download a "Spotify client" to use it, so no go at work, oh well. Why does it need a local application?

Hey guys, not tryin' to, y'know, brag or anything, but I just got this in via email:

Hello

Would you like some great news? We thought so.
Trent Reznor has sent you an invite to join Spotify for free!
You can thank them later, but first let's get you started with Spotify.

Thanks Trent.  We're kinda on a first name basis, y'know.  No biggie.
