The Verge Playlist: It’s Valentine’s Day and you’re going to be alone forever

Today is a very special day. Today is a day we celebrate love and hope and love and kissing and sex and hearts and candy and having someone who will care when you die. It’s very real, and very serious. Some people don’t have that person, and for those people, I’ve made the only playlist you’ll ever need.

There’s the pinnacle of loneliness: Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (also covered amazingly by Prince, but that’s not on the internet). There’s a desperate torch song: Dusty Springfield’s truly pitiful “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.” There’s Drake, alone and drunk in a basement: “Look What You’ve Done.” There’s the Violent Femmes’ pleading, self-loathing “Please Do Not Go.” A few loops should take you through the night.

Every day we see company emails or websites that distort badly on a mobile device or links sent via an OTT (over-the-top) message for a website that will only display properly on a desktop. There are numerous sites, particularly in retail, where it is difficult for a user to see the product categories because the icons are so small. In these situations, pages are clearly built for a desktop screen and a potential customer would have to zoom in to view the areas they may be interested in.

It’s that time again, when faux-scientists and PR agencies make up some statistics to demonstrate that it’s officially the most depressing day of the year. Well cheer up, you bunch of cry-babies; you might feel a bit mopey because it’s cold and you spent too much money at Christmas and it’s not payday for another week, but it’s not as if you’re being subjugated by a flawed super-AI or consumed by grey goo, is it?

People are unwrapping drones for Christmas and it’s not going so well

Thanks to the massive rise in of consumer drones, one of the most popular items under the tree this year is likely to have four rotors and a camera. The FAA even released a video this week that proposes best practices to help people “stay off the naughty list” as they play with their airborne gifts.

Drones are no longer specialty items, they come in all shapes and sizes. From DJI’s affordable film-quality options to Parrot’s toy-sized mini versions, they’ve practically become a stocking stuffer. And looking at social media, it appears some people are having a lot of fun with them already:

Netflix shuts the door on offline playback: ‘It’s never going to happen’

Netflix isn’t concerned about providing your entertainment on a flight or any place else that lacks a strong Wi-Fi signal. The streaming service recently (again) reiterated that it has no plans to support offline playback. “It’s never going to happen,” Netflix’s Cliff Edwards recently told TechRadar. When asked by The Verge to confirm Edwards’ remarks, a spokesperson provided the following statement: “We have been asked the same question for several years and have always given the exact same answer.”

So the company’s message couldn’t be much clearer: offline playback isn’t in the cards, and it never really was to begin with. Netflix does seems more concrete and definitive about the subject now. In January, Joris Evers — then Netflix’s…

Bandcamp is going to let musicians offer their own digital subscriptions

Bandcamp is about to start offering subscriptions, but they won’t look anything like what you see on Spotify. Instead, the Guardian reports that Bandcamp plans to begin letting artists offer subscriptions specifically for their own music. The artist will set the cost, and their subscribers will get access to all of the new music that they put out. Artists can also choose to include parts of their back catalog in the subscription and offer subscriber-exclusive content, from songs to photos to news to discounts on merchandise.
