Apple Creates iTunes Preview

While a strength of Apple's has always been ease of use, direct links to iTunes from a web browser have always annoyingly needed to boot up iTunes before a song could be checked out. Another strength of Apple's has been fixing things, and the simple solution they've created is iTunes Preview.

iTunes Preview works as a website that your browser will go to when you click on a direct iTunes link. The page you're taking to will have all the pertinent information to whatever song or album link you clicked on, from release information to pricing. The page will also have buttons to click on if you do want to open your iTunes and hear some previews or make a purchase.

Like cut and paste for the iPhone, it's been kind mind boggling that Apple didn't have something like this already, but at least it is out there now, helping to save computer processing speed the world over.
