The Coolest Error!

I was on iTunes previewing a song and instead of hearing the 30 second preview, I was able to hear the whole song! How cool is that!?

I do wish iTunes would allow for a full low-quality preview of songs. It would certainly keep me buying more. It's difficult to really buy a song you're not familiar with after only getting a 30 second preview. There are songs I've bought based off the preview and the entire song was bad with the exception of the 30 second melody.

A full playback would probably put the record companies and artists in the pooh though. I'd like to be able to have free reign of the song for thirty seconds, so I could skip about to different areas so as to ensure it's the correct track. I wouldn't mind if this was limited to thirty seconds at all, since that'd be more than enough time.

I discovered a bug a while ago that if you get a free iTunes song with the Coca-Cola advertisement. And if you clicked buy album, with only 1 song credit. It still downloaded. There was no money gone from my bank account. Free song But I reported it.

I just double clicked on the song and it played the whole thing, I don't know how I did it; it just happened.
