In upstate New York, too, the moths have stirred up a debate over GMOs for the past several years , though the plan has not been met with quite the same level of opposition. The approval process through the USDA rather than the FDA, too, was much swifter.
“We’re always testing things by adding or removing features to make Spotify better overall,” Spotify customer support told a forum user, per Mac Rumors. “We’re sorry that this means you’re not able to use the Web Player like you could before. We can’t say if or when any specific features will be back.”
The moths have been engineered by the British biotech firm Oxitec, the same company that last year caused a stir with its plans to release genetically modified, Zika-fighting mosquitoes in the Florida Keys. The diamond back moths take a similar approach to the mosquitoes, modifying male mosquitoes to limit the population over time by passing on a gene to offspring when it mates with wild females that causes female moths to die before they reach maturity.
Per the Verge and Engadget , the company will only say “recent updates” have made the two programs incompatible. Users on the Spotify forum have flagged what they believe is an incompatibility with the Google Widevine content decryption module, which Spotify uses and Apple does not support, though the company has remained mum about whether Safari support is coming back anytime soon.

Diamondback moths may be a mere half-inch in length, but their voracious appetite for Brussels sprouts, kale and cauliflower make them a major pain for farmers. This week, the . Department of Agriculture approved a potential solution: moths genetically engineered to contain a special gene that makes them gradually die off. A field trial slated to take place in a small area of upstate New York will become the first wild release of an insect modified using genetic engineering in the US.
Music streaming service Spotify no longer officially supports Apple’s Safari browser, and Safari users who attempt to access it say they are being redirected to use another browser or download Spotify’s desktop client.
Diamondback moths are a sizable problem for farmers, and a problem that’s growing as the moths develop resistance to traditional pesticides. They do about $5 billion in damage to cruciferous crops worldwide every year. In the upcoming trial, a team at Cornell University will oversee the release of the genetically engineered moths in a 65-acre field owned by Cornell in Geneva, New York.
