services

Lessons learned

So for those of you who don't use the Last.fm service yet, don't bother anymore. Or that is unless you live inside the USA, UK or Germany, you can still enjoy the service. When i first read the announcement of last.fm to start charging money for parts of the service i enjoyed earlier for free, I shrugged. I did not listen too much to their streams, my main reason for using last.fm was for scrobbling, which is keeping track of what i listen to. Once in a while i would listen to the recommendations based on what i listened to before. Sometimes it made sense, sometimes i just couldn't understand how they came up with that song.
Anyhow, no more. I stopped scrobbling and last.fm made certain we stopped listening as well, unless i would pay for the streams. And given my shrug earlier i would even consider paying for the service. But after a days thought and some online discussions i realised it would go against my principles to start paying now. I understand they made a plan, i just can't agree with the plan, so i take away the only thing i can, my account and thus my loyalty.
