Apple launches web-based iTunes song previews

Apple has begun to offer preview samples of songs from the iTunes Store—the same previews available from within the iTunes application itself—over the web on its iTunes Preview site. Launched in November, the Preview pages include track listings, user reviews, and related links, and when it originally launched, song previews were a notable omission, especially for a site dubbed “Preview.” The new previews use QuickTime to deliver the audio, which is formatted in AAC.
