I’ve posted a couple of Spotify song links recently.
I was under the mistaken impression (I didn’t test the links) that they would, oh, you know, cause the songs to play.
But they don’t. They cause Spotify to launch, and then to play the songs. This sucks.
But this is not what I want. Sorry, Spotify – I have no interest in advertising your service THAT much. I thought you were offering me the service of a mini-player, branded with your name. If what you’re offering is the chance to frustrate people who don’t have your player and cause it to launch on the machines of those who do? I’m not so much your guy.
Those links, I’ll leave up, just because I don’t feel like doing the work to take them down. But I apologize to those of you who may have clicked on them. I’ll go back to the old-fashioned way of embedding YouTube videos and the like.
