No, Blogs, MP3 Isn’t Dead

Thank you Jason Snell for not simply regurgitating a press release and calling it “news”. Come on tech blogs. Think for yourself.

Decoding Top 10 Lists

10 – Ooh, I didn’t expect you to start with that. How exciting. You must be super smart.

9 – Meh.

8 – Meh.

4 – Totally not a paid advertisement, sorry I mean native content.

3 – Pure stupidity to see if anyone else is still reading.

1 – This makes absolutely no sense. It makes the author feel all smug and smart because no one else thought of it. And that’s true, no one else thought of it, because it is BS.
