iTunes 8. Want it? Of course.
Features:1) The self-proclaimed Genius playlists/sidebar. This works much like that of Pandora, where instead of a website controlling the personal playlist creation, iTunes takes the reins. As you play your favorite track off of Mariah Carey's Christmas album, you can then click the Genius button. Low and behold, the new iTunes begins to create a playlist that relates other songs in your library to that Carey track. With each played track, the genius playlist relates more and more songs giving the playlist an electronic brain of sorts. Whew.
2) Grid view: much like that of the cover flow feature on your iPod except iTunes displays all your albums via grid format. I guess this makes it easier to pick that perfect album at the perfect time. Honestly, I don't think I have ever used cover flow on my iPod once, so yeah.
3) A new flashy visualizer: FINALLY. God what have I been smoking pot and watching all these years. I tell you what...crap. Now a cannabis-inspired-visualizer-watching-session can be taken to 11...I love colorful, moving lines.
4) HD Shows: Now available, HD formatted shows so you can watch that last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on your iPod nano while riding the subway to work and actually see the blood dripping off the fangs without having to squint too much.
I am sure there are more exciting features. So here is the link...go wow yourself.
After the jump.
