Little big details: Rdio

Listening state persists independent of whether you’re using the web app or desktop app. Taking an action in one immediate affects the state of the other. It’s user experience details like this that have kept me perma-awestruck about Rdio since Friday, and why I’m tempted to throw iTunes completely out the window.

Super Analyzer

Super Analyzer is a nifty little Java app that will parse the contents of your iTunes library and then spit out statistics like song plays by album release year, library growth over time, most played artists and albums, and how often you play each album compared to the rating of the album. Furthermore, for each metric, you can break down the results by decade, genre, album and artist. For me, it’s all about the 2000’s.
