Get with the CoverFlow

If you’re a music lover running Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and iTunes, you absolutely must grab the free CoverFlow app, which goes out and rounds up any cover artwork you haven’t already loaded as metadata for albums in your iTunes library and displays them in a flashy interface you can scroll around in, like this:

Once you settle on an album that grabs you, just double-click the centered album to launch it in iTunes!
