Apple has done it again! part 2

While I was giving my initial impressions on iTunes 7 (see previous post), Dan Hill of cityofsound had already posted a much more elaborate post about the subject. I've been recently "converted" to his blog (via Russell Davies), and he is excellent, with a profound knowledge of the subject and always with insightful comments. Make sure you read his "New Musical Experiences" post. It's a brilliant piece about the new ways we're consuming music, and all the broader context surround it. I couldn't agree more with his comments about "contextual information". In "brand-speak", we could translate that as clues that help people to create/recover meanings, making listening to music a much richer, meaningful experience.
PS: Don't forget to read his top 10 posts.
