New iTunes Spyware

Doesn’t it seem as thought companies are getting more bold in their privacy invasion practices?  What we won’t give up for perceived convenience…

As noted at TUAW, iTunes 6.0.2 contains a new feature: the MiniStore. It’s neat, at first. Sort of.

But not really.

Each
time you play a different song, the MiniStore features information
about the artist currently playing, as well as “Listeners Also Bought…”
Here’s a full size capture
of Apple marketing in action: as you can see, I’m playing Mary J. Blige
covering U2’s “One”, and the MiniStore shows other albums from Mary J.
Blige and U2.
