The devil is in the details


Users of iTunes may or may not be enamored of the little box you can open in the lower left of the main window to display album cover art. As one who grew up in an era when LP covers were adorned by some pretty cool artwork, this is something I miss in the age of digital downloads. I admit to having spent probably too much time downloading album cover art from Amazon.com to display in my iTunes. But there are now applications that will do it for you automatically. Mac users ought to give Fetch Art a try. Once installed, this is a script you can activate within iTunes that will find the appropriate cover art from an online database and put it in that little window for you. It's not going to change the world, but it's a pretty nifty slice of technology.
