According to CNET’s Greg Sandoval, iTunes previews may double in length as of Wednesday’s iTunes announcement.  Apple wants to improve the iTunes experience and the 30 seconds of music in the preview aren’t enough according to some.

That’s some pretty good news as you can pretty much listen to a whole song, along with a music video and lyrics on YouTube.  iTunes needs to stay competitive there.

Oh, and speaking of Cloud services, CNET says Apple hasn’t obtained the rights to do Cloud music storage and distribution so it won’t be able to store music via the cloud anytime soon.  Downer.
