iTunes 9.1 is live, iPad syncing, modded Genius Mixes added

Tunes 9.1 just went live. I’m digging through to see what’s new in this version, but iTunes just updated to 9.1. It seems you actually have to go to the site to download it because my System Update and the Update Software command in iTunes didn’t catch it.

What’s new in iTunes 9.1

iTunes 9.1 comes with several new features and improvements, including:

• Sync with iPad to enjoy your favorite music, movies, TV shows, books and more on the go

• Organize and sync books you’ve downloaded from iBooks on iPad or added to your iTunes library

• Rename, rearrange, or remove Genius Mixes
