MySpace reportedly loses 50 million songs uploaded over 12 years

first_img Now playing: Watch this: 5:30 Internet Services Music MySpace may have lost 12 years of music in a “server migration project.” Lionel Bonaventure / AFP/Getty Images MySpace may have lost your digital memories in a server migration.”As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from Myspace,” it said in a note at the top of the site.”We apologize for the inconvenience. If you would like more information, please contact our Data Protection Officer at DPO@myspace.com.” Tags 5center_img Comments Share your voice Andy Baio, one of the people behind Kickstarter, tweeted that it could mean millions of songs uploaded between the site’s Aug. 1, 2003 launch and 2015 are gone for good.”Myspace accidentally lost all the music uploaded from its first 12 years in a server migration, losing over 50 million songs from 14 million artists,” he wrote Sunday.”I’m deeply skeptical this was an accident. Flagrant incompetence may be bad PR, but it still sounds better than ‘we can’t be bothered with the effort and cost of migrating and hosting 50 million old MP3s,’ ” Baio noted.MySpace didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment.It might seem like a dim and distant memory now, but MySpace was an essential springboard for musicians like Arctic Monkeys in 2005 and the most popular site in the US in 2006. It was got a makeover back in 2013, when it was refurbished and rebranded as a cool place to share music and video.First published at 5:07 a.m. PT.Updated at 9:44 a.m. PT: Adds background detail.

Telecom Spectrum Auction Modi Govts Gain is Subscribers Loss Idea Cellular Hikes

first_imgThe Modi government’s coffers may have become richer from the aggressive bidding for spectrum auctioned in March, but it has already had its domino effect on subscribers, as predicted by analysts.Idea Cellular has raised tariffs for mobile data plans by as much as 100 percent for pre-paid users in the NCR region. India’s third largest telecom carrier has doubled the tariff for few 2G data plans, while increasing charges for 3G by nearly 33 percent. The revised tariffs are effective from 3 June.The company has also cut down the validity period for some data plans.It is also expected to hike data tariffs in other circles in the coming days, Livemint said, quoting industry sources. Idea is the first telecom operator to announce tariff hike after the fierce bidding by telecom companies in March during the spectrum auction that saw the Centre receiving bids for ₹1.10 lakh crore. Idea had successfully renewed its spectrum licences in the nine telecom circles where it was operating. The company also emerged as the top bidder committing about ₹30,300 crore.After the auction, the carriers were required to pay about 33 percent of the final bidding amount to the government within 10 days. The companies have the option to pay the remaining amount in 10 annual instalments beginning from 2017.”The auctions will increase the debt burden of the industry by 70-80% of the spectrum price paid,” Hemant Joshi of Delloitte Haskins and Sells, had told The Economic Times in March.Some analysts had estimated a minimum increase of 10 percent in tariffs, while others expected them to go up by 15 percent.Experts believe that with the increase in spectrum costs, companies may seriously consider passing on the cost to consumers, despite the intense competition.last_img read more
