Genius

I know I’m way behind the times, but I recently outsourced my music listening selections to an open source solution, Apple’s Genius. I never could quite find the time to build playlists and shuffle was getting to haphazard.

So far, so good.  It’s been mixing music I don’t listen to much or at all that happens to have found its way onto my iPod with the stuff I listen to more often and I like.

That’s yet another way Apple adds value to its product at no monetary cost for its users.   And, yet another way an open-source solution makes our lives incrementally better.

Now, I think it would be nice if iTunes suggested podcasts in similar fashion.  “Those who like this podcast also like these…”  Perhaps it does already and I just haven’t figured it out.
