Google Launched New Music Service Today

Google launched their new music service today amid an uproar from music labels: Music Beta by Google What I don’t get is, why do Google/Amazon/Apple need the approval of the music industry for a service to store files. If I buy my music it is my legitimately they are mine right? Then what business is it where I store them. If want to sign up for a service that allows me to use those files across devices and remotely, that’s my business.

The music industry is so scared of any kind of innovation. Every time someone develops a new way to listen to music they start lawyering up to fight the innovation.

Hey music labels, about this. Hire some innovative people to develop services like Google, Amazon and Apple, then you can get a piece of the pie too. Haven’t you learned yet? Innovate or die!

Yesterday (Ode To Backups)

Yesterday,
All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my database has gone away.
Oh I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly,
There’s not half the files there used to be,
And there’s a milestone
hanging over me
The system crashed so suddenly.

I pushed something wrong
What it was I could not say.

Now all my data’s gone
and I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.

Yesterday,
The need for back-ups seemed so far away.
I knew my data was all here to stay,
Now I believe in yesterday.

Coldplay — Scientist

I love this video. The whole backwards thing is cool.
