Music recommendation system for iTunes

updated 10:10 am EDT, Wed April 7, 2004

iTunes recommendations

The compares the songs you have rated in your iTunes library against an online database to determine a list of new music you may be interested in. The project, developed by students at the University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana) currently has a limited number of rated songs in its database and thus admits that the recommendations may be "laughable," although as the project grows so should its accuracy. Client applications are available for both Mac OS X and Windows that extract your ratings and submit them to the database.

    I wonder why M$ never can do this...? They don't like to make apps work the same in different platform.

    Hey, I'm with it..

    But what I'm not with is a 15 hour post time...15 HOURS!? That's...whoa!
    But to its credit, it does allow for users to logout and check back later for update progress. Now can you imagine if everyone that had iTunes took part in this? Could be revolutionary.
    (or at least a step or two right behing revolutionary!)
