    How smart is Genius?

    This is may be a strange question, but Genius did a weird thing to me this week.

     In December, I picked some random song (not a holiday song )and put Genius on.  I thought it was pretty cool that it threw in some Christmas songs.  This past week I celebrated my birthday.  I did the same thing as before, picked a random song (not a birthday song) and put on Genius.  Somehow it grabbed 2 songs with "Happy Birthday" in them.  Really freaked me out.   HOW did it know??

    Maybe it should be called "Clairvoyent" instead?

    In Response to Re: How smart is Genius?:
    [QUOTE]Well, the holiday business makes sense because they could simply program it that way. As for a birthday, if I had to guess, perhaps you had to enter your birthday when setting up an iTunes account (perhaps to make sure children don't hear no-no words.) And that really is a guess because I don't have an iTunes account. Prefer to buy by the album, or find high sound quality youtube links if it's something I only want to hear once in a blue moon. Or, perhaps you've entered a birthday in some other Apple software, and iTunes links up with it? Or perhaps this information is accessible via processing a credit card number?

    The weird thing is it was my husband's IPod, so it was his iTune account. 

    I think it must just be wicked smaht  : )

    Maybe it was trying to remind HIM not to forget your birthday.

    Ok this is strange, on the way home from a night of dinner and revelry with friends last night, I was scrolling through the I-pod.  I stopped on George Harrison's Greatest Hits  and played it for the ride.  I had no idea it was his birthday and just by coincidence put him on .... 


    .....It's another I-Pod miracle.
