last fm

i am going to try this lastfm thing, but i have a question:
does it use what i listen to on my ipod, or just on the computer?

I think it only goes by what you listen to on the computer. I don't even use iTunes, so it's tracking what I listen to on windows media player... There's also a Last.Fm player that will play songs for you based on tags or similar artist, that kind of thing. Then judging by what you listen to, what you like, and what you skip, it'll play music or suggest other people you might like.
But to get back to the original idea-- I think it's only on your computer, not iPod.

there is an optioon to have it check your ipod as well. I think that it does this whenever you plug your ipod into the computer, but I haven't really paid much attention to it.

Yes Sara, Justin is correct. Because I have a Mac, I use Audioscrobbler which you can download from Last.fm. It doesn't do it automatically but you are able to. I know there are several Windows programs which you can download including Audioscrobbler. When you set up your account, next to your picture in the top right corner you will see downloads and you should find the right program.
