iTunes 4

So the big news today was Apple’s announcement of new iPods (don’t they look like an artist’s rendering?) and the iTunes Music Store, where you’re able to browse and purchase 200,000 songs in AAC format. It’ll be interesting to see if this catches on.

But what really struck me was a couple of features in the new version of iTunes that was also released today. Most notably the ability to share your iTunes library and playlists with any other computers on your network, using Rendezvous. Like file sharing for your MP3s. What’s nice is that if you have a multi-computer set up, all your separate files can be combined and played from one computer — not to mention accessing at work, where everyone is already connected. Instant radio station.
