LAUNCHcast doesn't work with OS X (aka please fail early)
My brother has been enjoying LAUNCHcast since before Yahoo! bought them. He reminded me about it today. After DSL came up I went to check it out. How truly annoying!
Hello Support at LAUNCHcast.
This service is pretty unfriendly to Mac OS X users. The form for customizing a radio station cannot be submitted with either Safari 1.0 (v85) or Mozilla Firebird 0.6. The links to existing stations claim to be "Launching your radio player" and never do anything. In Internet Explorer 5.2 the custom form can be submitted. Only with IE and only after completing the form do I see a message that OS X is not supported.
I filled out the dang form three times only to learn that I have to pay the Microsoft tax to enjoy your service. It's a long form. At the very least your site should notify OS X users before they complete the form that you don't support the platform. You could also make it self-evident that your service depends on Window Media Player. The link to the LAUNCHcast system requirements it too deeply nested.
Thanks for wasting my time.
ps. Your feedback form requires that I tell you which Windows Media Player I'm using. Since I'm not actually using Window Media Player, please disregard that part of my reply.
