See Things Differently
One of my favourite sites, Critical Metrics, has been updated. I love it because I ALWAYS hear a track I really like, and I can play it in the background whilst I type this.
On the plus side, the new interface is simple and makes it easy to create a playlist or, do what I do, and simply play everything.
Only, there is a major downside – the unnecessary addition of streaming video with each track… since I play the playlist in the background the video is completely superfluous. But as a result of the video being streamed, the buffering has become really bad, and now the audio stops and starts a lot. Which has now got so annoying I’m going to have to switch it off….
Do they really think people sit and watch the videos all day? Why not have an option to turn them on or off?
I’ll give it another go in a day or so, just in case it was my connection, but if it keeps happening then I’ll be really sorry to leave but there are plenty of other, good but not as good, alternatives.
