The Internet radio and music recommendation service have been teasing their numbers for quite a while now, where they've been issuing metrics on a month-to-month basis, trying to scoop up more advertising revenue. In one of the first of these releases, Pandora talked of having 49 million active users, something that rose to 55 million in July. The audience is slowing getting bigger as they launch services in new countries such as Australia and New Zealand.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
