Hey Amie

If I recall correctly, Genuis uses play info from users who have Genius enabled. It will look at what other songs appear in the same playlist, what songs users choose to play next and so forth.

Downside, is for unpopular songs. If Genius can't see enough users with that Fleetwood Mac song then it can't make recommendations.

Test: Get all Axiom Forum users to get a copy of that song and make a playlist with it and update Genius. See if your side works any better!

*All the above is my recollection and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Yeah, I guess Amie's on the very short list of people who I would listen to Fleetwood Mac for.

Still laughing over your comment Ken!

But it's funny, snazzed - I admit I like the odd popular pop song, too, and they won't genius either. And now I can't write to Steve Jobs about it anymore. frown

I bet you can still write to Tim Cook.

His day may come too - Jack Welch had some big shoes to fill when he started with GE and now we never think of the company without him. Maybe I shouldn't bother him with my iTunes problem in case he's got other stuff to worry about. Like the iGPS. Or iRemoteControl. (just throwing those out there in case he's reading.)
