On free backrubs online

Charlie Brooker takes the music streaming service Spotify (free for basic quota, paid for more or unlimited songs) as an opportunity to delve into the psyche of internet freeloaders who only seem to be reasonably satisfied if absolutely everything they’ve ever wished for is available for free at top notch quality with whipped cream and a cherry on top – forever.

Technology has left us hopelessly spoiled. We whine like disappointed emperors the moment it does anything other than pander to our every whim. If the internet gave free back rubs, people would complain when it stopped because its thumbs were sore.

I was going to give Spotify a free test-run myself, but it’s not available in my country. And they’re lagging behind on a free Linux version, too. Now that’s the last straw…
