I've had the 1.5GHz Core Solo Mac mini <<my first mac>> for around week now. This really isn't a question, but rather a statement. How darn cool is Front Row? I think it's one of the coolest pieces of software I've ever owned. I love being able to sit across my family room, munch on some chips, watch movies, and listen to some tunes. I was ripping movies like mad all last weekend. I might need to let my little mini cool down. I think Handbrake put ssome serious stress on the Core Solo chip.One of my favorite features in Front Row is the "resume playing" option in movies. I think it's so cool the way it fades into the movie. Music is great too, but I need to go back and start adding album art to all songs. It looks so much cooler when you have artwork in the now playing screen. So maybe I do have a question after all. Are there any applications that gather album art for iTunes automatically?

I use myTunes to download cover art for my music. I also use it to show track info in the menu bar on the right.

There are a number of widgets and programs in the downloads section of the apple website for getting album artwork. Smile

personally i prefer Coverflow for controlling iTunes, it lacks playlist support but is great for albums. It also has the function of collecting artwork.
