Not long ago, Guvera was one of the better options for music streaming. Being free via ad support was its biggest draw, and being Australian-owned didn't hurt either.

Think streaming music, and the first name that springs to mind is probably Spotify — but there are some great alternatives out there. Both Apple and Google have music services for streaming, downloads, and playing local files across phones, tablets, and desktop.

Last year, Apple jumped into the streaming music game with Apple Music, which turned out to be a wholly uninspiring clone of Beats Music. Here comes Apple Music's second movement, but will it be enough?
If you jumped on the music-streaming bandwagon, there's a good chance you've been left with a shelf full of CDs gathering dust.

I have a tendency to fall down what I'll call "internet research holes". Recent romps include reading the entire Daenerys Targaryen character page on the Game of Thrones Wikia, the entire post history of a person who supposedly writes for Total Sorority Move and the collected web history of Beyoncé and Jay Z's marital problems.

No matter the subject matter, the process is always the same: open up my computer, follow my heart and sit in bed for the next two hours fixating on whatever I find.
