John Oliver took a week off of Donald Trump to expose another critical problem in the United States: the lack of oversight of rehabilitation centers.

You might not have noticed it, but supposedly Google has started to roll out Youtube Music on Tuesday. At least that's what they are claiming in this blog post though so far I haven't seen a single post of anyone actually having received it. Not one. As much as I enjoy some of Google's products, but they are so embarrassingly bad in launching new products it's unbelievable.

What we get is: A pre-announcement, an announcement, some more waiting, prior access for some users and then some more countries at a later, not specified date.
