One of the estate agents I've been using has an App that pays you for exercise that you do. It monitors the steps you take. How does that work, who's paying for this?

What's the difference between that and Spotify?
Not much. Slightly different libraries and playlist formats. Amazon gives you a bit more control. For premium, Amazon has a slight edge. For free, Spotify is better. Though to be honest I wouldn’t pay full price for either.

If you're looking for premium Hi-Res streaming and a massive library of music, Qobuz is another good option. Relatively expensive for the monthly downloading in Hi-Res, but not when you factor in you'll never need to buy a hard music format again.

I have this mobile app for Air Canada. Ever since the last update it is constantly running in the background and even shows up on the notification bar of Android. I don't have any flights. I never logged in with the app - I just use it on a booking by booking basis to get tickets or do upgrades. Why does it need to "run" every X minutes?

Goddamit. I did the three (or was it longer?) month free Spotify trial, built some good playlists and now it is running out. I was hoping they might have a BF deal or something.

They have you on the hook. You'll be on escalator subscription price increases for the rest of your life. It's like being addicted to blow. Don't do it mate.

I think I'm going to uninstall Snapchat. I forgot my password and the latest upgrade logged me out. Frankly I only had an escort on my friends list there and some people I met randomly at bars with whom I never speak with after that night.
