  1. How many Hypebot readers are aware that simply installing Spotify gives it permission to use up to 10% of your Hard Drive’s storage space (storing encrypted, unknown content) AND allows them to use your network and bandwidth to stream music from your device to OTHER PEOPLE using Spotify (P2P)? Even when you aren’t using the app.

  2. Customers under he as of 27 – isn’t that age discrimination? Do they honk that as you approach the age of 30 you suddenly are struck deaf or decide you have completed your music collection?
