Battle of the sexes: Men and women like different iPhone models9secondkox2 said:Careful, AI. Don’t you know you’re not allowed to notice the differences between men and women in our culture today? LOLIt’s as if they know they’re being assholes, and the only reason they are is because they get a rise out of pretending somebody else is angry about it, so that they themselves can play the victim.
Spotify's HiFi tier is coming -- but not soonmelgross said:Spotify continues to generate losses. I’ve been saying for several years that the only companies that will be able to offer music streaming on a large scale will be companies that offer it as a service, as additive to their other, much larger businesses.
In which bizarre universe is the logical business choice simply accepting that there is no way to make any money off streaming business model, and in consequence reducing it to a loss-leading add-on? I mean, rather than figuring that THE FUCKING BUSINESS MODEL DOESN'T WORK?
I'm slightly irate over this because at NO POINT in this (mis)judgement of business viability do the interests of those supplying the actual content ever enter into the equation.Oh, so you've built a "business" around ripping us off and giving everything we make away, conditioned customers to expect access to everything for free or ad-free for price of three Starbucks coffees a month, and haven't figured out how to make a profit?
Well, now. I have this D-sub tie-line cable that would like a word with you.

Apple launches Apple Music Classical appAppleZulu said:So, no. It’s not just the new quadraphonic.My vote is „yes“.Not least because while Apple is one of the major adopters and driving forces of Atmos remixing, their implementation is supposedly rather botched, from what I’ve read.I’m also generally skeptical of „remixes“ and „remastering“ of classic material. Unless the original was actually messed up, I’ve rarely heard any example where the new version actually improved on the original vision.Usually, it brings it in-line with modern expectations—none of which have anything to do with what made the material great; on the contrary.
