Audioscrobbler turned – redesigned

I wrote about Audioscroblbler before. Now I found they’ve merged it with their service and also reworked their design – and it seems they improved usability a lot.

Interestingly they offer blogs and tagging (they seem to have learned the lessons). The personal radio now can be used with a separate client (which is not yet available on OS X, so I can’t test it). Anyway is a very useful way to get introduced to new music I probably like: I just have to browse the playlists of my neighbours.

I remember a similar feature back in the Napster days in 1999/2000: you could browse the music libraries of remote users that seem to share your music taste and learn about artists you never heard before. and iTunes Music Store would make a good team. The “users that bought this also bought that”-pattern is too simple to be a real value.

Update: just released an OS X Player.
