Genius Sidebar Returns to iTunes

Apple quietly changed the Ping sidebar back into the Genius sidebar this morning in iTunes, no software update necessary. I am extremely grateful for this, as the Genius algorithm really “gets me.” Turns out Ping isn’t really interesting to me, as I’ve found my musical tastes differ wildly from my friends and acquaintances.

If you actually do like Ping, don’t worry, it can still be accessed from its dedicated section in the navigation sidebar.

I sure am glad to see Genius recommendations again.
