Bad and complex

I was listening to a podcast–Rocket, excellent tech and media as it relates to tech podcast–and they were talking about how much better Apple Music does with recommendations than other services, which now terrifies me. You get a playlist of recommended music once a week from Apple Music. I got maybe seven songs in on the commute today. I marked like for one. I marked dislike for the other six. I didn’t even let the ones I got halfway through pass. I think I dinged one dislike in the last thirty seconds. I love recommendation engines and I’m sure Apple Music runs a complex one. But it’s a bad one too. Bad and complex.
