I am using Pandora in PC either through Boxee or Web Browser, so I can’t comment about using it on Iphone, but why I like and why I think its increasing its users base is because
– Its free
– I like the way the UI is designed, its simple yet captures all the needs like search, feedback like, don’t like etc
– Very good at creating stations which I think are like playlists which you don’t have to create
– Allows users to be exposed and explore the world music, because before using Pandora I was very rare listener of music , but after being introduced to it, I have started listening to music atleast 3 times a week.

YouTube leanback allows users to navigate YouTube videos just with keyboard, and gives a TV viewing like experience.
2 problems or how to do things I find are –
- Is it possible to link IR remote control to leanback so that I can control using remote.
- How to search for vidoes

Couple of times I wanted to use Boxee in Ubuntu 64 bit, but failed attempting it because there was no official support for it. Recently I found that they have released it Ubuntu 64 – Boxee. I downloaded and installed the .deb file and it started and worked without any problems. Even IR remote which I had configured for XBMC worked without any change for Boxee too, which I believe is because Boxee is based on XBMC code base.
Also I fount that they are planning to sell a hardware Boxee Box, which looks good, but one more addition they can make to the hardware is to add a DVD / Blu ray drive
