Wired News has a comprehensive review of Rhapsody 4.0 and the Sansa Rhapsody MP3 with embedded firmware. Some highlights:
- Smarter playlists
- Faster song transfers
- Better song license management
- Best Buy partnership
- Easier drag and drop to device
- Listening history blogging
The service is designed to enhance music discovery, which I think will improve Rhapsody’s standing and the stature of subscription schemes as well. What I don’t know yet is how reliable the song feeds are – the algorithm is the key.
