apple itunes music store

The best thing about Apple’s new iTunes Music Store: It hasn’t been around long enough for the recommendations system to make sense. (You know, the “If you like this CD, you’ll also like” thing that Amazon and others get from analyzing customer data.)
If you try to buy a track off 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’, the current number one recommendation is Paco de Lucia & Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez. I had no idea 50 Cent’s bangers were all secret flamenco guitar aficionados.

  1. More than likely it works like the one at Netflix, if your selections are too eclectic it doesn’t know what to recommend so it starts pushing what the have a lot of on the shelves.

  2. word of advice, make sure that you listen to the track before you buy them even if you know the song. Some of the songs are not labeled correctly.
