I guess I missed this news report. It looks as if Pandora, the "free" online radio station now caps your listening at 40 hours per month. Once you reach (or approach) that limit you'll receive either an email or pop up alert to advise you that the music will soon be over.
Your options are:
1. Pay up – .99 paid on a credit card (one time non-recurring) will reset your meter but only for the rest of the month
2. Pay $36 for Pandora One upgraded service which is good for one year
3. Do nothing and wait for your usage meter to reset at the end of the month
