Rdio is closing down next week, releases personal archives for subscribers

Rdio is shutting down next week, but before the music service is completely removed from the Internet, they're offering users the chance to login and download an archive of their history with the Rdio. After December 22, there will be no more Rdio and those who rely on the service will have to take a look at alternatives like Groove Music who will gladly sign them up to their respective plans.

Pandora spent $75 million to purchase 'key' assets and technologies from Rdio, and the company even offered staff a role at its own building. Be sure to head to the Rdio website for more details, some interesting statistics on the company, as well as access to your personal archive.
