Hi Amie! Did you kick the kids out of the house and have some free time now?
I really do not like I-tunes, but am forced to use it as I use an I-Pod for my rigs. I-Tunes makes me feel violated for some reason…..
I do not have the patience to create play lists, so I rely solely on the Genius function. I have no idea how it works. I thought Apple might have a bunch of a bored kids sitting around coffee shops creating play lists whenever someone hit the genius button, and they just don’t have any taste, but suspect that’s not really how it works.
I do know that some artists have restrictions on their music and have boycotted Apple in one way or another. AC/DC comes to mind…. Their newer “re mastered” CD’s that I have will not allow me to use the genius function, or the genius function won’t work with them….whichever way that works.
