Preview Playlists

Preview playlists in iTunes 4.5.

One of the less-mentioned features of iTunes 4.5 is the ability to make “local” playlists of Music Store previews. Simply create a playlist and drag tunes from the store onto it. It’s not the “wishlist” feature I was hoping for (and, frankly, amazed that Apple didn’t include in this release) but it’s pretty nice to finally be able to bookmark stuff I might want to buy.

Also, the hack of the day is:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes invertStoreLinks -bool YES

Dig it.
