Yesterday Apple released iTunes 10 and two things stood out to me.
1) The new Ping feature that allows you to connect with people and find out what they’re buying while letting them know what you’re buying on iTunes. To me, this feels more like marketing peer pressure than just being helpful. Not that I begrudge Apple in the least, as they are a company and it is their job to make money. Just don’t act like we don’t realize that this is what you’re up to.
2) The iTunes 10 icon has gotten rid of the CD, much like iTunes itself.
