If I'm visiting a band site, I kind of expect it to go with the territory. That I don't mind so much. It's a music site after all.It's still drop-dead annoying if I'm just looking for some information about release or tour dates - music should be opt-in.
The reason I'm hating so much on auto-music is probably that I have my stereo amplifier hooked up to my PC, and that I'm blasting music away quite a lot of the time... very unpleasant when something unwanted mixes in with whatever I'm listening to.
That doesn't tick me too much.
What really pisses me off is that the entire state of audio is still so horribly primitive. Phones still have crap quality. It's only been 100 years or so... But the real thing that irks me is volume.
All volumes are relative, and there is no base-line for anything. Put in one song and the volume is great. Put in another, your ears are blasted out. 3rd song and you can't hear anything. Same for audio in videos.
Volume *SHOULD* be in actual dB or SPL with a standard like STP (standard temperature and pressure). e.g. X dB @ STP and a distance of 2 meters.
Sigh... Some things are just hopeless...
(But it gives me a great idea for a product that I don't have the money to fund... Sigh... more frustration...)
