This Week I Have Been Mostly Listening To

Just recently, I've started using iTunes to listen to music, mainly so that I can try out audioscrobbler. iTunes seems okay as a music player, although it chews up a lot of processor when it's running.

Audioscrobbler keeps track of what you've been listening to, in order to match you to people with similar tastes and generate recommendations of other music you might like. It also builds a personalised "radio station" for each user, so you can browse round and listen to new music.

I'm not sure I'm going to use the personalised radio station stuff, but if nothing else my weekly listening charts are of interest. So if you go to my user page you can see what I've been listening to.

I've been using Audioscrobbler for a while now and have always been impressed by the talent of these young guys. Unfortunately, as seems to happen on the Internet, a free service is being taken for granted by people who expect the world.

True, I was pretty impressed with the way the personalised radio station window kept sync with what is playing in iTunes. Clever stuff.

Once again, thanks for the pointer to AudioScrobbler. I installed the plugin for WinAmp last week and have been fascinated by the statistics it's been collecting on my listening habits. looking forward to using the last.fm thing once it's got a bit more information to play with.

^ Inline link-tastic eh?
