  • Do I see a bias? One specific music service (podcast subscription) promoted for the podcast, as though there are no others? Oh, then a phone from the same company and no other?
    Probably just my imagination.
  • Probably. Can you explain what you're imagining better, or preferably, what would you like that you're not seeing?
  • Damn I saw the Netflix tile and thought Netflix was finally getting a good update.  Sigh net neutrality is important too
  • Same here lol.
  • Lol I wish they would put out an update, maybe to pin shows to start and maybe a UI change
  • Please stop pumping net neutrality. This is the second article in a week. If I want to read political bias articles I'll go to any news outlets website.
