iTunes Fangirl News: Genius!

Resident Apple fanboy Kevin Rose has picked up on a great Apple rumour – one that sounds quite exciting and will add a nice Pandora (RIP for UK users) like element to the service. 

iTunes 8 includes Genius, which makes playlists from songs in your library that go great together. Genius also includes Genius sidebar, which recommends music from the iTunes Store that you don’t already have.

I’m not too bothered about the rest of the updates but it’s good news that the film studios are finally getting their acts together and are actively getting involved with online downloads and rentals. I’m really keen to see how this will affect the theatrical to DVD to PPV to Sky distribution model. Something has to give and this could finally create the demand that’s needed to change the film distribution model.
