Rough Type: Nicholas Carr's Blog: Apple declares war on sneaker hackers

"It was painful to watch, at Apple's big media event on Monday, Steve Jobs attempting to pawn off a retread music-recommendation system as some sort of great technological breakthrough. Yes, iTunes will now be able to suggest songs you might like based on what you and other like-eared users listen to. Wow. That's so 2002. And the company even has the gumption to call the feature Genius. A better name, if the experiences of early users are any guide, would have been Halfwit."

I tried it too and was underwhelmed.
