Did I really say I wanted a phone with a 1-megapixel camera? Scratch that. I guess if I just wait a year, they'll hit U.S. shores with 3+ megapixels!
This is the kind of thing I've been waiting for from Apple. They've got a good community built up around iTunes, but they've done a poor job of connecting and exposing it. I'll have to play around with this to see what it really means, but it would be great if I could find iTunes users with similar tastes in music and then subscribe to their feeds.
On a side note, here's yet another reason for full RSS feeds. I can't get to the More Like This site right now, which means I can't read the rest of the post OR get to the link. Incredibly frustrating.
Update: So now the iTunes RSS Generator is everywhere, and I've gotten the URL from various places and subscribed to two feeds, one for new releases and one for featured & exclusive albums. The generator is very nice, letting you choose genres and then generating the RSS URL on the fly. I very much expect this type of added value service from Apple, and I wish other sites would take a queue and make it this easy for users to create customized feeds.
But I also expect at least two RSS buttons next to every artist's name. I want to grab a feed for every artist I want to track plus one for music bought by listeners who also purchased a specific album. Then there's the really out-of-the-box community, user-based recommendations that I want.
I want Apple to work with Art of the Mix and show me songs other people have mixed with the one I just bought. I want to see which Live365 and Shoutcast stations play the song I just bought. I want to know if it's been mashed with another song. I want it to be like MoodLogic and recommend similar types of songs to create an ambience.
And I want to build all of this into a feed generated on the fly. I know, I know, but I can dream, can't I?
