My space finds missing 50 million songs behind sofa
About a year ago, My Space updated to HTML 2.0 and a lot of older songs stopped working on their “modern” player. However, two days ago, My Space admitted that the issue was deeper than that:
“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. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
That’s right – all music from 2003 to 2015. Only more than 50 million songs from about 14 million artists has been lost.
The news of this massive loss of data shook the internet, as did the news that MySpace still existed, as most had assumed it had joined Google Plus in the tumble weed corner of the web.
However, today data protection officer Dr Jana Jentzsch said that after an extensive search they have found the missing data files behind the common room sofa.
“We’re hoping that the resolution of this issue will mean that both of our users will come back and make use of our state-of-the-art site for sharing ,” said Dr Jentzsch in an official statement.
In other news, the owners, Specific Media, are still searching for a buyer for MySpace. Last we heard they had dropped the price to $2.50.
