Apple Offers Song Previews on iTunes Web Site

Apple has started to offer preview samples of songs on the web version of the iTunes music store called the iTunes Preview. It launched the iTunes Preview in November 2009. At the time, you couldn’t listen to these previews. The Cupertino, Calif.-based online music giant is using quicktime to offer previews that encoded in 44.1 AAC 300+ kbits/second.
