Chances are you already know Pandora Radio, the music-streaming Web site that creates streaming music stations based on your tastes. There's absolutely nothing to Pandora beyond the Pandora player, which makes it a perfect candidate for Adobe AIR. No doubt that's why Pandora was quick to create an AIR application: Pandora Desktop.
With Pandora Desktop, you don't need to fire up your Web browser or keep Pandora buried among your browser tabs. Instead, the radio station runs as a standalone desktop application, with integration into your system tray, including right-click options for changing stations, viewing the currently playing track, and playing or pausing the track.
