Reviews on Google are untrustworthy, since they can be Deleted

It’s very common for owners of a business to delete and remove reviews on Google. So therefore reviews and ratings on Google Maps or Google search are not really valid. The owner of the place can flag any review and inappropriate and it might take sometime but Google will review it and most likely remove it.

Seriously I can no longer make a map or pin items while searching for other areas. Searching for nearby places of a destination is no longer possible. I know I can’t be the only one that hates the new Google Maps.

Seems Yahoo! subscribed everyone that uses Yahoo Mail to their Daily Yahoo stories. Pretty common for Yahoo to do something like this, I marked a few as spam then unsubscribed.

Last.fm now requires Spotify for Music Audio Track Previews

Last.fm now requires you to login with either Facebook or Spotify to listen to the short 30 second previews on their site? Why? It used to work just fine before without any login. I’m already logged in on Last.fm, why do I need to login for something else? I’ve already switched back to Pandora for the first time since like 2009 because they added the stupid YouTube videos that are slow, get frozen and stuck in their beta player. They just killed their entire site with these two moves in my opinion.

Last.fm’s New Beta Player Lags with YouTube Videos

Last.fm‘s new beta player is horrible. They now load YouTube videos to try to pull in more songs from bands or perhaps to show a video. But as we all know, YouTube is laggy, sometimes poor quality and the files are much larger than simple audio files. It’s a horrible decision. I can’t even use the site now. I don’t want to see videos. I don’t even monitor Last.fm very often except to flag a song that isn’t what I want.
