So I was just playing around with my iPod and downloading some new stuff. And when I opened up iTunes, the little Genius bar opened on the side and started recommending some stuff I should get based on what I have loaded.
Now I'm not much for country music, as you no doubt know, but I do have some. I'm a firm believer that you can't have a legit music catalogue and not have any Johnny Cash, so I have some Johnny Cash -- not as much as I'd like, but I'm slowly trying to build it (I need to get some of his daughter and some Dwight Yoakum while I'm at it). Anyway, over in the Genius bar, there's a recommendation that I download some Kenny Rogers based upon my collection of Johnny Cash.
Like I said, I'm not a country music expect by any means. But I don't think that liking Johnny Cash necessarily means that one would like Kenny Rogers. Maybe some Kris Kristofferson, or some Rosanne Cash or Rodney Crowell. But Kenny Rogers? I don't think so. That would almost be like recommending Herman's Hermits because I've got The Beatles on my iPod.
My point. Maybe this Genius bar ain't really the genius that it thinks it is.
