Nope, neither of these are Apple products, but i Like features integration with i Tunes and the i Pod via a plugin that will automatically organize your music into playlists, help you discover free music and connect with others through the i Like site.Both these products sound confusingly similar to Apple's offerings, and it may have been wise to choose something more unique. The i Tunes plugin works in a similar way to the one from MOG - auto-updating your online profile based on the music you play on i Tunes and your i Pod.But there's also a lot you can do within i Tunes itself: find artists like the one you're listening to, set up an automated playlist by seeding it with a track you like, see what your friends are playing, sample music that you might want to buy and download free music from the indie artists on Garage Band. If you don't use i Tunes, you can enter your musical tastes manually on the site.Just like on My Space Music, artists have profile pages, too.More neatness: you can post a Flash widget to blogs, My Space, hi5, Piczo, Xanga, Windows Live Spaces and the rest that displays your recently-played songs and most-played artists, allowing visitors to listen to them from within the widget.The San Francisco-based company consists largely of ex-Microsoft employees, and boasts .5 million in funding from Khosla Ventures and MTV co-founder Bob Pitman, among others.
