iTune Samples

Have you ever wanted to hear more of a song on iTunes? Sometimes the 30 second sample can be a little disappointing, ending right before a good part. Well now you don't have to worry, for Apple is extending the sample play time to 90 seconds! A conformation email was sent to Labels to confirm the new change in samples.



In totally unrelated news. Apple predicts to sell 100M iPhones and 48M iPads in 2011. That is a ridiculous amount of money. Someone want to do the math? :)

And for those of you that were wondering, the museum was the De Young. Got to see the Starry Night because (I think) the Louvre is remodeling the third floor of their museum. Beautiful artwork. Friend has photos might post later on in the week.

  2. I would have thought you could work out if you like the song in the 30 seconds. It is only a preview afterall (and mostly so people can know if it is the song they think it is!).

  8. Not bad. I've always thought 30 sec samples were too small.

  9. I never understood this stuff. 90% of the time the song you're looking for is on youtube. But for iTunes, that's pretty cool. 30 seconds was enough for me usually.

  10. I agree with the person saying 30 seconds isn't long enough. There are a lot of songs with 30 second sections that really give nothing away as to what the song is like. I enjoy this news.

  16. Sounds like I should invest in Apple stock :o

    Will be pretty neat hearing more than 30 sec; it seems they always chose a crappy part of the song to demo.
