Today was an awful interesting day for digital music if we must be honest. First, Apple eliminated the universal aux plug in favor of expensive and easy to lose earbuds or lightning cables. Not to be outdone digital music hero SoundCloud encountered a coding error with serious ramifications for the platform.

This coding error made all private tracks public and visible via the feed today.

Needless to say, artists are extremely upset about this.
