CBS is just getting rid of all the wrong people. Just a few weeks ago they shut down my favorite radio station (92.3 K-Rock in NYC) and favorite morning radio show (Opie and Anthony). Now they are planning on cutting access to Last.fm by 3rd party apps, like FlipSide for BlackBerry, and charging those who are outside of the US, UK and Germany.
Check out the following article by Ben Woods over at KnowYourMobile.com:
Last.fm has announced that it will be removing support for third-party mobile apps using its online music service in the next week.
Despite the fact that these third-party apps have always been unofficial and therefore simply tolerated by Last.fm this news is sure to hit hard for users of Pocket Scrobbler and Mobbler on Windows Mobile handsets, or Flipside for Blackberry owners.
The company says that the officially licensed iPhone and Android apps will continue to work with no problems.
It seems that maximising revenue is the focus of the now CBS-owned company, as Last.fm also announced that users outside of the UK, US and Germany will no longer be able to access the service for free via its online platform, instead the cost will be €4 per month.
Cutting out an entire BlackBerry AND Windows Mobile nation? Not to mention an awesome radio station and morning radio show. Someone at CBS needs to get fired. Rant over.
