Apple launches As Heard On, new Commercial Success


Apple recently spotlighted two features of the iTunes Music Store that make it easier for users to find songs heard on television. The newest edition of “Commercial Success” offers a collection of songs featured in popular TV commercials from companies such as Budweiser, Jaguar, Cingular and Coke. The new “As Heard On” feature is being used to let iTunes customers easily find and purchase songs performed on Fox’s American Idol. Interestingly, the As Heard On section is the first to feature episode tabs for quick access to related music—in this case, the current week’s songs, music from previous weeks and the complete collection.

IIRC, the “Commercial Success” thing has been a feature in the iTunes Music Store before - months ago, in fact; it was only shown for a week before disappearing from the main page, but I guess it got brought back with updated tunes.

So is this designed to help us know which songs to avoid?

Either that, or just alert the world on who the sell-outs are.
