iTunes 8 Looks Great! First Impressions


  After the install of iTunes 8 and you agree to the terms, you are presented with the new album view as pictured above.  iTunes then asks you if you want to use the Genius Playlists.  Once you agree to the terms, iTunes downloads your information and now when you play a song it makes suggestions of music to buy on the right sidebar.
