    Peter Kafka, writing for Recode, on Spotify passing 40 million subscribers:

    Spotify, which is heading toward an IPO, has 40 million paid subscribers, the company announced today. But Spotify’s chief revenue officer, Jeff Levick, is leaving the company, sources confirmed.

    Levick joined Spotify five years ago, when the company was just starting to build out an advertising business; he had previously been at AOL and Google.

    I can't tell if this will be a stock worth buying. I guess I have to read more.

    And they still won't let users have more than 10,000 songs saved.

    It's criminal honestly.

    I am a Spotify loyalist because there doesn't seem to be anything better out there. But they have a lot of work to do.

    They've said it's because only 1% of their users would have over 10,000 songs. I miss Rdio.

    I had no idea this was so. That's wack. The users who use the service the most should be rewarded, not crapped on. But I guess Spotify gets their cut all the same, the heavier users just pay out the artists more.
