Siri and the Music Chart Question Kerfuffle ➝

Dave Mark, writing on The Loop:

This issue is getting a lot of coverage. Some of the reaction, perhaps predictably, is quite negative, implying that Apple is intentionally holding back data from non-subscribers.

I’ve barely paid attention to this story, mostly because I don’t think it’s a big deal. Claiming that Apple is “holding back data from non-subscribers” is a bit facetious — isn’t that the whole point of paywalls and subscription content?

In short, some people are mad that Apple is requiring them to pay for data that sits behind a paywall. Oh, woe is me.
