Pinned toot

Conflicted about Hey. I like the underlying ideals, and I think the new approach to email flow is fresh and unique. I'm also not sure if it's a flow that's exactly right for me. I do like that I'm not hesitating to open emails because I know it'll make a blip on comapny analytics anymore though.

Worth $99/year?

It's 2020 and Safari on MacOS still doesn't support native date/time inputs.

Really Facebook? A keyboard I've had listed for months is suddenly now an illegal product? Okay sure.

Wow Instagram, what's the matter? Your stories area wasn't already in my face enough as it is so you had to double the space it takes up?

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk

4) Adding specific songs to my "library" makes that artist show up in the "Artists" area. This is good. If I select that artist, I have no way to browse to only their songs that are in my library. This is bad, and other platforms have good UI for this to help you select only music you want to hear.

3) Various artists/albums are not available, likely due to licensing issues. More frustrating is that only specific tracks on a single-artist album will be unavailable for some reason.

2) Having playlists be joined with normal YouTube playlists is frustrating. I don't need my "Funny videos" playlist to show up in YT Music just because there happens to be 1 video with a song in it. Similarly, I don't want my MANY music playlists to clutter up my YouTube video-watching experience. They're separate contexts and shouldn't be combined.

1) Lack of gapless playback (or if it's not lacking, then having it not be consistent) is frustrating. Several of my albums/playlists have tracks that need to flow together to sound correct.

It's getting to be that time of year where I randomly think about Haskell and try to muster up the courage to learn it. Please send help.
