Since I couldn’t make it up to San Francisco to see whatever Steve Jobs wants to dole out to his music-listening public in person (mostly because I wasn’t invited), here’s an open thread in which we can comment on the revelations let loose by Steve Jobs at today’s “Apple: Let’s Rock” event. Already, he’s thrown down with the factoid that his company is the No. 1 music distributor in any format–ahead of even Wal-Mart and Best Buy–and that iTunes 8 is going to have a feature called “Genius,” which will make iTunes Store recommendations to users based on their past listening habits and that “rating” feature that I suspect maybe 10% of iTunes users actually put time into. (Oh well, at least it’ll defintiely be better at segues than Party Shuffle, am I right?) Anyway, have at it! [Gizmodo]
