Today, Apple released iTunes 8 and their new "Genius" feature. The Genius playlists by themselves are pretty good, but I found it was pulling 1-star songs and, according to the rules of my library, I have no need for such songs.
So, thanks to some help from Berg, here's the best use of the Genius feature that I've found so far: a Genius smart playlist.
You set the playlist to "Genius" and then you can adjust everything else ...
- Date added in the last year
- Rating of a certain level
- Last skipped or last played in a given range
- Size of playlist
- Selected according to most often played, least often played, least recently played, etc.
