iTunes 8 Not So Clever

iTunes 8 new visualizer

Soooo… I updated to iTunes 8 tonight. I like the new layout for albums:

Although iTunes remains rubbish at fetching album art so most of them remain blank.

I also love the new visualizer:

But the new Genius function seems rushed and half-baked. I’ve tried for the last two hours to get it to work and it simply doesn’t. Maybe my music library is too large (247 gigs at the mo) but even after it chuntered through it all the first time, it never got further than ‘sending information to Apple.’ This is what I keep getting:

The genius bit really is rather thick. *sigh*

Ah well… in the mean time, have a look at some more pretty iTunes pics:
