RANTS: An open letter to spotify

dear spotify.

i wish you guys would stop smoking crack and actually LISTEN to your customers.

the white on black interface doesn’t only suck, its harmful to peoples health.

there are numerous ui issues, but lets concentrate on one that causes people real world pain. a simple toggle in user preferences is all that was necessary. your mgmt team could have returned to their cocaine pile not 60 minutes later.

i will not be renewing my paid subscription due to the numerous poor choices your organization has made over the past 6 months, and your uttter contempt for the community.

thanks for screwing a new customer who really loved your service not 6 months ago.

RANTS: Quote of the day

When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong – these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.

Winston Churchhill
