iTunes Gets Friendly?

I always wondered why Apple never added social features directly to the iTunes user community – a world which seems really very closed.

However, it seems Apple’s finally getting friendly with the launch of a bunch of iTunes Widgets to show off your iTunes purchases, reviews or favorite artists. I guess it won’t be long before we see these springing up across the blogosphere, MySpace and perhaps even as an F8 Facebook application.

It’s kinda underwehlming though, Apple’s done little to move the needle. Typically Apple, the widgets only show your iTunes history, ignoring the bulk of your non-iTunes collection…of course, this may simply be for copyright reasons also 😉

Here’s my favorite artist widget…

Perhaps we’ll eventually see a more social iPod…?
