Check out Manny's while it's still available thanks to Google's Street Maps.

About Spotify on mobile devices: the reason it's so fast is because it uses a percentage of your hard drive (minumum of 1GB) to store the music you listen to which it shares with other users.

If you tried to run it in it's current form on an iPhone or iPod then your network usage would suddenly be huge. If they implemented Spotify without the sharing mechanism then it would suddenly slow down for all the desktop users who are providing bandwidth for mobile users.

For those of you with Spofity access, I've just hooked it up with Nicecast from Rogue Amoeba to broadcast Spotify output to my Roku Soundbridge Radio - result = any music I want. Absolutely brilliant.
