Pandora down fall of internet radio

Back in the early days of internet radio it was very difficult to get artists to agree to sign rights over to internet radio. Often internet radio stations had to be a established radio station with a reputation, a few pod casters pushed really for a internet radio station to what it was in the early days. Eventually it just became a daily thing, and so many internet radio stations popped up, with so much music, so many different nitch stations that it was flooded with diversity of great music. Non-established artists benefited it and made them established by having a service to put their music onto, and anyone could listen to it.

Mid 2008-2009 sources similar to pandora, began popping up only pushing already established music artists and leaving the outcasts by mass music publishers, outcasted from the public eye. Soon after plenty of internet radio station feed software lost support and became abandon ware. With so few now even offered even in the linux community that is supported, and few stations actually. Even small advertisers could afford to advertise on internet radio, and it helped out with funding so many small businesses in comparison to pandora's high asking prices from advertisers.

This actually effected radio station formatted podcasts, which would play their music and their broadcasts repetitively through out a day and bank off advertisers income which became less and less with services like pandora popping up. As their viewers dropped so did their income all dew to mainstreaming the concept of internet radio.

You see pandora and services like that are not internet radio, a radio service broadcasts pre-recorded media to a mass. Meaning it is the same content for everyone, while pandora streams music. This means that the individual listening to it is just listening to some mp3 file followed by a mp3 ad followed by yet another mp3 song or ad. With internet radio there is a less personalized experience, and it usually contains a POD cast within it. Meaning you are not only listening to music but news, options, and others. In other wise pandora and sources like it is a step back. It is killing internet radio over time as people don't want to listen to others and exclusing themselves more and more. While the music on those services become more and more limited similar to how modern day netflix is pandora will too fall, and hopefully then we can go back to good old internet radio.

Internet radio helped fund so many more people than just the 1% of music artists, and a soulless cooperation, and for once the mass music publishers were at risk of losing control over the market to people who actually gave a dam.

Steam controller review

The Steam Controller


The black odd looking controller with 1 analog stick and 2 circle touch pads is quite a odd controller.

Odd isn't bad but it is different. It works based off options the user sets. It can and does emulate mouse and keyboard inputs and Xbox controllers.

It uses left circle pad as wasd or the dpad on 360 controllers. It has two buttons on the bottom one is e the other is space bar. It uses 2Aa batteries and is fully wireless with a usb receiver. It can be used as a wireless mouse out side of steams big picture mode. It is fully integrated with that and even has a typing mode.


The controller is far better in terms of functionality than the shot box 360 controllers. It is compatible with 90% of games and when it isn't you can actually set it up to be. Along with that anyone can share their setups so there is always different ways to play.

The controller actually fits in hands correctly unlike the 360 controller and instead of stretching thumbs to reach for your analog stick it dips down so no sore thumbs. 

Best controller by far period it is a steal for $50

IOS 9.1 is buggier than 8

IOS is known to have various bugs in the menu system, but in the last several updates IOS has become worse and worse with its bugs that supposively solve well-known security issues that have pledged IOS for many years(and still do).


Security issues

This last update added more security options, but the security options really don't make much of a difference. If your device is stolen your information is still compromised, if someone gains access to your ICloud account your information is still compromised too, the best thing you can do is turn off icloud sync if you don't want contact or photo's being stolen. The real reason for this update was for security issues with their ads, and to let people know what contains ads due to a new law passed in UK that forces people to be informed of the usage of their cookies. While ads still collect personal data, and personal information on Iphones, they managed to work around this with a general disclaimer with this patch. The update didn't solve any of the "mailware" issues, just a rebranding phrase of viruses obtained from emails(apparently according to apple fanboys it makes it different somehow). At least this put more of a foot down on advertisers stealing information, now all they have to do is putup a generic disclaimer which does nothing.




Photos bugs

There have been nemerious sync bugs with this last update, one of which prevents you from deleting your photo's, you have to unsync, delete photos, resync, delete photos again, then unsync to solve this issue. Deleting them from your phone or on your computer doesn't make a difference it needs to be done this way.
Best option is to not sync it with your ICloud and to use things like google docs instead or some other third party cloud storage.

Suppending Freezing issues

Many applications are getting feedback now that claim their app is causing their IPhones to lock up and freeze, this isn't the applications actually. There is several OS level issues going on now with Iphones with supending apps which it does now when ever the phone goes into lowpower mode, or is set into sleep/hybernation. This suppending mode has various bugs that cause the Iphone to lock up and the only thing that can be done is mannually turning off by holding down the power button for several minuets.

Phone lockups and memory issues with apps

The newest update has some new form of memory management with suppending applications, this update was for "security" just like everything else in this update apparently. But what happens often is a application that is suppended eats up memory and eventually causes the phone to lockup because all of its processes are being halted by a single thread of hanging memory from a suppended application, when ever you don't use a application that is open for a while or until another needs more RAM it takes the oldest application and dumps the ram it is using causing the application to basically restart. This memory management has caused lock up issues causing applications themself to lock up when they are restarted not all the time they are loaded properly due to it dumping some of the memory not all. This isn't the applications fault it is the updates. You most of the time have to end the application and restart it mannually.

Orientation bugs


With these new patches there have been orientation bugs with the keyboard, with photos, and with appilcations. What is going on is with the new update they also messed with orientation for what ever reason trying to make it "smoother". Often you see the keyboard bugging out with this the most, but images get streteched out and so do applications as it trys loading the previous orientations image but the phone stretches it to fit. Again not application issues as it is the OS level not sending out the correct orentation signals to the applications, it happens based off when and how you rotate the device such as just unlocking it or switching apps. The keyboard it happens to the most. With the newest update the slightest bit of change of angle can trigger a orientation swap even going into the wrong ones. There is no fix for this problem other than flipping your phone around till it fixes itself if you are lucky. It happens AAAAALLLLOOOOOTTT. Best solution is to turn on orientation lock but then you can't use landscape which is nessary for gaming but apple doesn't care they only made everything in portait view for their stuff.
