Googlers on audiobooks

Graham Waldon posts an opinion on the recent changes of the Audible.com

I logged in to Audible.com for the first time in a while last night, and they've changed up a bunch of stuff since I saw it last. I haven't done an exhaustive investigation yet, but I like what I've seen so far. In particular, several old pet peeves are now (finally) solved:

  • Links have been unjavascriptified, so you can do normal link things with them, like open them in new windows/tabs, etc.
  • It might be possible to link directly to particular books now (try it out on one of my favorites). I've been having mixed luck with it though, and I think my browser cookies are confusing the issue, so I'm not sure. Try it. It's kind of sad when something like that would be an improvement, rather than taken for granted, but oh well.
  • The ridiculous session timeout (which didn't even require you to sign in again, but just screwed up your navigation) doesn't seem to happen anymore.
  • Sound samples now open in a little flash player in a new window, rather than making me download a RealAudio file and play it in another app.
