So the other day I signed up for Spotify Premium again after finding out about how TMobile would let you use the service without accumulating data charges. But I canceled, again, once I remembered, again, all the dumb bugs and stupid quirks in their software (accidentally erasing the current play queue when clicking on an artist, recently played artists not reflecting actual play history, etc.). Spotify is terrible, in more ways than five or six.

Still, the industry is moving towards these streaming services and I won't be surprised if they ditch the free service all together, maybe replacing it with just a radio service with advertisements. I just hope they pay the artists (not the labels) better than they do now.
