i wonder what they've been smoking there at spotify
spotify: "some issues"
user: "what issues"
s: "some backend changes"
u: "what changes"
s: ...
spotify is the new twitter: don't listen to users, don't tell users, don't care about users. just "have" all the users

Twitter doesn't even care about their opensource projects.
And can't even recruit great Devs.
I wonder what's their recruiting process :/

yea, too bad when a great idea/service is in the hand of biz morons

Indeed. The discussion in the issues always puts me off from using their products.

May 16 2016 18:02
same with last.fm
CBS bought them back in the day and hoped to turn it into a streaming service
which didn't turn out like we all know
after they realized, they started removing more and more cool stuff, even the audioscrobbler API got stripped down
now it's lost.fm, down there in the gutter with myspace
Yahia Mansouri
@Insanitariume
May 16 2016 18:05
last.fm doesn't bring anything beneficial to me, that's why I think i never came across them too much, but the few time that I tried them I didnt even understand what's their purpose.
Wonders how they're still in top 1000 sites worldwide.

@codemasher
May 16 2016 18:06
for me as music lover it's one of the essential tools to find new cool stuff
well, it was
the audioscrobbler API powers more stuff than you'd imagine :D

@Insanitariume
May 16 2016 18:07

Yahia Mansouri
@Insanitariume
May 16 2016 18:13

smiley
@codemasher
May 16 2016 18:14
so you get suggestions based on your and other people with a similar musical taste
Yahia Mansouri
@Insanitariume
May 16 2016 18:16
Yea, i see now, it's just me that i never got into music too much, that i never noticed those things :p
i can see the power now :o
smiley
@codemasher
May 16 2016 18:17
heh
the great thing is, that last.fm suggestions are way more accurate than any other service's
Yahia Mansouri
@Insanitariume
May 16 2016 18:22
yup, some have bad algorithms.
tbh, the only api i worked too much with was github api.

@Eearslya
May 16 2016 19:52
But I want a hammer for my rev because it's the thing I use most
I was hoping for the new legendary hammer but nope
