Where the fun begins... and probably ends

Genius finally finished!

And it works well! It can pick up to 100 songs just based on one song. I gave it "High Speed Dirt" by Megadeth and it came up with Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax, Motorhead to Maiden, GnR, Cinderella and Whitesnake. A great collection of songs for long distance driving (for me anyway)!
It took less than 5 seconds and you can save the playlist for next time you sync your ipod.

I actually don't mind itunes 8 so far, but now I'm going to play with grid view... wish me luck, I might need it.

Update: Actually just saw a rumour that the Genius function might come to the firmware of the "old" classics.

There is absolutely no reason why Genius isn't able to be added to iPod Nano 3rd, iPod Classic 1st at all..

Anyhow, if you're an iPod Touch user with 2.0.2 firmware and updated to 2.1, and you're not getting the Genius button. What you can do is do a resync with your iTunes and next time you start up your iPod playlist (or now playing) and you'll find the Genius button. :-)

Apple's not document this very well but I read it from other forum.

You're totally correct... It's just up to apple, and we all know what they can be like.
I would be betting it will happen when the new classics get their first firmware update.

Have had a play around with it, and it picks up songs even with my random music. Not to bad really.. ha
