The part about being able to subscribe to music blogs and getting the music, like RSS for mp3s, is very cool. I’d be losing a lot of the commentary on the music industry by using this, but would make finding/hearing music on the 30+ music blogs I like to check out a lot quicker.
If iTunes basically supports web content as well, how hard is it to imagine iTunes doing the same thing?
I downloaded it and started playing around. First off, it’s kind of slow on a Mac. Maybe because it’s still a beta. Second, I’d better read the instructions… I almost downloaded 20 mp3s to my computer without realizing it. I’ll need to play around with it a bit more, but I can see some benefits to it. But I wasn’t able to drag bookmarks into folders, and there was that slooooow issue I mentioned, so I’ll stick with iTunes as my player of choice.
