Here’s what it does: when you play a track in iTunes, it looks up the album title at Amazon. If there’s a match, it displays the album cover in a little window. You can then drag this album cover onto your desktop where it functions as a shortcut - click on it to play the album.
After you’ve dragged more than a few album covers out on to your desktop you’ll understand where the application’s name comes from.
Now, I may have a job for the Lazy Web.
What I’d like to do is not only show the title of the track and album that I’m listening to but also show a little thumbnail of the album cover.
I’m guessing some clever person out there has already used Amazon’s API to do just this but I haven’t come across it yet.
In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of my desktop. If you’re bored or easily entertained, see how many of these albums you can name.
