The Daily Ping

Somehow, Ryan has written over 1 million Pings; Paul, just 60.

I Give this Ping Five Stars!

Ryan and I were talking about star ratings in music management applications today when I admitted that I never use stars.

To me, they’re not worthwhile. My main argument against them – besides having another piece of metadata attached to a music file – is that if I have a song in my library I at least like it. If it’s not there, I don’t like it… simple. I did try rating songs for a short while but found it to be tedious and kind of not useful.

In contrast I find play counts to be very useful if only to demonstrate that I really have been listening to the same 10 songs over and over. Why, I’m like radio!

What about you? Do you rate songs?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
