How to Remove Duplicate Songs from Spotify Playlist

The second I walk outside of my home I launch Spotify and let Metal Music blast through my ears until they bleed…wait, is that too much info? No, that appropriate.
Anywho, In Spotify, My main Playlist is the Starred Playlist, and in it I have all the songs that I would enjoy listening to outside and inside the house, but sometimes I get bored from these songs and want to replace them so I select all of them and throw them into another playlist so I don’t forget about these songs in the future.

Doing this multiple times a month will create duplicates songs in the backup playlist and I don’t like that, going through all 600 songs to remove the duplicate ones are hard thing to do.

Netflix is shutting down its public API today

Netflix is shuttering its public API today, effectively ending support for a number of third-party apps that made use of the API to get TV and movie show titles as well as other data from the streaming service.

My question is: What third-party apps?

Searching on the AppStore using the keyword “Netflix” shows the official app and bunch of poorly designed apps that no one seems to care about much.

Also take a look at the chart made by Daniel Jacobson, VP of Edge Engineering at Netflix, it really show that no one actually uses the public API that Netflix has provided for a long time, 11 years ago.

 

Apple’s Greg Joswiak on What Makes Apple Apple

Greg Joswiak Apple’s Vice President of iPhone marketing did a great interview with Re/code at the Code/Mobile conference with Walt Mossberg and Ina Fried.

My favorite part of the interview when Ina asked Greg regarding the Apple Watch that he’s wearing, opening the way for Walt to ask the question that everyone wants to ask regarding the price of the Apple Watch.

In the interview Greg is seen wearing the small size of the Apple Watch saying that he prefer this size, and that the two Apple Watch sizes are about choice:

about making sure you have product that look and feel right for you.

Walt took another shot at Greg regarding how accurate Siri is going to be in car when using Apple CarPlay and it backfired in a funny way.

You should definitely watch it.
