So I just updated the AppleTV and fired her up. There were no visual changes in the interface except for a message encouraging you to hold down the Play/Pause button to bring up other options. The options are, in order, Start Genius, Add to On-The-Go, and Cancel. Starting Genius brought up a big honking error. I’d like to take a closer look at the methods used by Genius to take a song’s “pulse,” as it were, because clearly this metadata doesn’t make it from iTunes proper and into other devices. Why, Apple, do we have to reproduce work? Aren’t we using computers?
