The new Genius feature in iTunes 8 creates the perfect playlist. Just
select a song, click the Genius button, and iTunes generates a playlist
of songs from your library that go great with it. You decide how many
songs appear in your Genius playlist — 25, 50, or 100. Refresh your
Genius playlist to get new results. Or save your Genius playlist so you
always have it.

hahaha i got all sketched out with the other thread saying that it could be a possible way for itunes to find out if you've been downloading music illegally. but now that i see its legit ill try it out. thanks
1) its anonymous so it doesnt register your account to your music from what i understand.
2) for all itunes knows it could be ripped from a cd theres no way for it to know where you got that music from

I agree...genius is amazing. I didn't think it would do such a good job at finding similar music. It must take into account so many different things like pandora to come up with the playlists. I heard from a friend that pandora might be going down the drain though, so at least we'll still have this.
i don't like it i went back to itunes 7. i missed having the mini store. i found that having top songs helped me get the ones i was missing and also thought the 'other users bought' helped me find different artists as well. genius playlist was neat, but i don't need it. im not lazy so i can make playlists on my own. the songs they suggested that i would like sucked though, so no thanks.
the new visualizer was cool as well. i thought about keeping it then i remembered i wasn't a stoner and don't space out to my itunes visualizer.

pandora.com type in any band name or song title and it uses genre, rhythmic qualities, and instrument use to make a personal radio station. you can multiple too, like say hendrix and kanye. very very sick i use it at work all day
wait it doesnt tell you what other shit people bought in the store?
but dude, your visualizer statement had me pounding on the desk.
I am the stone that builder refused I am the visual The inspiration That made lady sing the blues I'm the spark that makes your idea bright The same spark that lights the dark so that you can know your left from your right I am the ballot in your box The bullet in your gun The inner glow that lets you know to call your brother son the story that just begun the promise of what's to come

It's kind of nice but the problem I have with it is it only gives you the "popular" tracks, since a lot of it is based on other iTunes users' habits. I feel like it's dumbing down what I listen to. Not that it's bad to listen to popular tracks but most of my songs aren't getting selected at all by Genius - just the one or two from each album tha everyone knows. I've been using it on my iPod at work though and it's nice for that because everyone knows all the songs and kept asking me how I was amking up such good playlists so quickly.
i love genius, but ive gotten some weird stuff that didn't fit at all
im more of a Pandora fan, but i cant put Pandora playlists on my ipod
so genius is a great idea and its already gotten much better than it was at the beginning, so i feel that very soon it will be as good or better than Pandora
