The sceptic in me thinks this is spin on what's inevitable. But positive none the less.

Quite an interesting read regardless of the class differences aspect. 
Little is known about how married couples from different class backgrounds deal with having very different beliefs about money.

This has got to be a step in the wrong direction.  If you can't get all your music in one place, the streaming utopia will be over.  I can't think many people are going to want to sign up for multiple services, it's not only costly, but trying to create playlists etc would become nightmarish if you need to cross services to access different artists.  This is very different to streaming TV/Movies.

I come to two conclusions from looking at this.

1.  Smartphones take terrible photos.

2.  Give the negative press the HTC One M9 has got for image quality, it doesn't seem a THAT bad.  And by that I mean, if you are already choosing from a bad bunch, does it really matter?
