Clever Amazon

First of all, I feel I should say that I was saddened as I know so many were at the news of the premature passing of Steve Jobs. If it wasn’t for him, it’s unlikely I would be producing the Yes Music Podcast.

R.I.P. Steve.

I was also interested to note this week how clever Amazon are getting. Alongside new sci-fi technology from Apple – Siri, it seems that Amazon’s artificial intelligence is hitting the mark. Here’s what Amazon recommends I buy this week:

Changes to email updates

What do you want in your email updates?

Hi everyone. I have just changed the Yes Music Podcast email updates.

If you have already signed up for updates via email, you will have been getting a message every time a new blog post or episode is posted.

For boring technical reasons, this was messing up the Yes Music Podcast listing in iTunes and only 3 episodes were showing up.

So, if you sign up now for the email updates, you will still get all blog posts and episodes. However, if you are already receiving emails, you will now only get the episodes. If you are OK with this, that’s fine by me. Otherwise, please sign up again using the email sign-up form on the right hand side of every page.

 

Sorry for the messing about!
