It is a hand little menu item that is themeable and allows you to control iTunes and download hi-res album art (amongst other things). It'll set you back $12.95 for...

OK, it isn't quite that bad, but iTunes does send data back to an Apple related service while you are listening to music in your library and have the 'mini-store' open. Why does it do this?
