I use Grooveshark. I'm happy with Grooveshark. I don't really see a reason to switch to Spotify. Until they pry Grooveshark out of my cold dead hands, at any rate.

Is this like the first big break down this site has had since like 2007 when it was down every five minutes?

Hope my scrobbles go through, I'm not sure I trust this program I've been using on my iPod touch. #firstworldproblems

That sounds like something you should see a doctor about.

those were some dark days. i paid out the ass to "help" them. at least back then it meant i had priority in the queue, but i can't remember if i lost some of my stuff, since there were times when i'd have hundreds of songs queued with the site being down for days.

Anyone try rdio.com yet?

How would you compare it to Spotify and last.fm?

Let's talk about the new last.fm beta.

http://www.last.fm/

I'll start: I fucking hate it.

First of all, hardly anything works at launch. I can't update my profile, I can't delete scrobbles, nothing. Now if this was a brand new, exclusive beta that hadn't been launched to the public, that would be OK. But it launched broken.

Secondly, the library is a pain in the ass to navigate. If you have a large library, it takes dozens of clicks to get to the artists with fewer plays, whereas before your artists were on one page in a long list. I wonder how all those extra clicks could benefit them...

Third, it's fuck ugly. I have adblock on and my page looks almost entirely empty. Take adblock off and it's swarming with adspace. The front page defaults to an amorphous blob of recommendations with tiny icons in the corner that tell you whether or not you're looking at an album, artist, gig (??!) or song. Absolutely hideous design and incompetent coding.

I'm sticking around because I don't want to throw 105k scrobbles in the garbage, but this is a disaster.

I love the shitfit on RYM about this. My reaction in general is a shrug. I never look at the homepage - last.fm is like RYM or Interference in that way for me - so that could look like one gigantic arse and I'd never know. The site in general looks a bit worse than the previous version, but that wasn't particularly good to begin with, and I like all the new charts. They're fun. I agree with some of the navigational issues, and I hope the temporary unavailability of certain features only lasts for a short period, but I can't fathom all these people saying they want to delete their accounts. It's not as if the core functionality of the site has changed, and in fact with the new charts it has possibly been enhanced.

I didn't even know there was a change. I'm still connected to it but barely look at it because some of their functionality is shithouse - songs not scrobbling if you don't plug in your ipod every two weeks, the app for macbook constantly crashing, etc.
