Default iTunes Genius

I'm addicted to it.
(For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, you pick the first song, and they make a mixtape of 25, 50, 75, or 100 songs based on your first pick. And its awesome.)
Do you guys like it, or use it, or hate iTunes with a passion, or have no opinion whatsoever?

Rarely, but that's just because I prefer to listen to whole albums and when I do listen to mixes they're ones that I create.
I use geniua more on the itunes store for suggestion purposes.

Most people here chose to listen to proper albums. You know, albums without filler.

If I'm looking for a mix I'll log on to Pandora. Now that's a case of a program reading my mind. Genius just uses algorhytms that are based on predictable criteria and tags.

how do you know it's filler till you listen to it? i find that many times when i buy albums, my favorite songs are the little known tracks on cds instead of the big hit(s) that i bought it for in the first place

I like this, because there are some albums where I only like two or three songs, and the rest just suck.

I use last.fm though, way better...and it's not limited to your library. Once I get a Nano I will use it a lot though.

I hate iTunes with a ****ing fiery passion of a thousand suns. I had over 300 dollars worth of music on my laptop that I wanted to transfer over to my desktop, but I use Winamp now, well iTunes wasn't about to let me just move those songs I bought over and I couldn't find a conversion software. Actually it's kind of a blessing in disguise because it assuaged any guilt I had about downloading music, because at least when I download something, I actually own it, and not a license to listen to it as long as I use their software and abide by their rules.
