beaTunes MatchLists by Apple

iTunes logoThanks, Apple! I'm flattered. Just like a bunch of other people, I couldn't help but notice, that the new Genius iTunes 8 feature works a lot like a beaTunes MatchList.

Elysse.net describes Genius as:

kind of like a mixture between BeaTunes, Musicbrainz and LastFM, but less featured…

I would agree.

Watch out for beaTunes 2, which will give you even more control over automatic playlist creation. Additionally to the already established rules, it will let you specify filters to, say, create a MatchList only from a particular decade, or a particular genre, or both.

Now if only I could get Apple to pay royalties for the MatchList concept... ;-)

Maybe they've tried to patent it, and you can get some money from them for keeping quiet about prior art? ;-)
