Summary Box: Review of new Web music services
MUSIC GALORE: Two new subscription music services — Rdio and MOG — let you hear as many songs as you want online and on your smart phone if you’re willing to pay $10 per month.
THE GOOD AND BAD: Both have millions of songs in their catalogs, so you’re sure to find plenty of good tracks. MOG’s website and smart phone applications are more stylish and easier to navigate than Rdio’s.
THE BOTTOM LINE: If you’re not a music junkie, you may want to stick with free Internet radio services and paying for occasional iTunes downloads. But if you need constant access to tons of tunes, MOG may be the one.
