Another reason not to not use spotify

Hi.
Well it was inevitable I guess but look at this.
http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/spotify-may-be-killing-your-components-but-there-s-a-fix
The gist of it is that spotify the loved streaming service, is writing data to drives generating the playlist.
This slows performance down and reduces the lifespan of solid state drives.
I think I once hit a snag where a drive broke, actually twice but that was years away.
A normal drive should last about 30 years so we shouldn’t need more than 4 maybe 5 drives in our lives.
Spotify has been writing 1tb of data within a 40 second period.
This has been fixed according to spotify, but on the other hand its a blow to streaming in general.
I have itunes which is fine, it won’t write anything to my drive if its not running.
Its quite shitty but I need it for apps for my devices .
I still like the old go to website and buy drm free mp3s so I can share them with my cds, in my car with my friends and over the net to my other devices.
While a lot of us have streaming units, and smart phones, the majority don’t, net streamers are new and cost a lot and smart phones can also cost.
A lot of people may have dvd players that can handle mp3s, and a lot of us have minisystems that can also handle it.
A lot do have cd players these days.
However for those of us that share a system with a spotify user I don’t want my system to be slowly killed while I am not even using it, would rather get ransomware.
