Todd Berman, VP of Engineering at Rdio, answers a question on Quora about why Rdio uses Flash storage.
We store some data client side (like what songs are in your collection, etc), and for some people with large collections, that goes over the default 100KB local flash storage limit.
However, we are making some changes on our end that should make this issue moot.
Also this tweet from Berman:
Pretty sure I have never been so excited about something I have worked on as I am right now. Can't wait to launch this fuckin thing.— Todd Berman (@tberman) February 20, 2012
Brand new Rdio experience? I’d love to see what they’ve come up with.
