|iTunes is no Beatles genius|

As I mentioned last Wednesday here on the Paperblog Writer, Apple made some big announcements today.
They announced a bunch of new iPods, but contrary to persistant rumors, still no Beatles on iTunes.
They also announced iTunes 8, who's big feature is "iTunes Genius", which is a playlist- and recommendation-generating sidebar/button combo that uses the combined power of the iTunes user base to make cohesive, nicely flowing mixes. But, unfortunately, like the lack of announcement of The Beatles on iTunes, this announcement is disappointing to Beatles fans as well.
According to an article in PC World, the new iTunes Genius function doesn't seem to work with Beatles tunes.
Putting in any Beatles song results in an error from iTunes, saying Genius is unavailable for that song. The guy from PC World tried three different Beatles songs, Dear Prudence, Eleanor Rigby and Come Together.
Apparently, it still may be some time before Apple Computers and Apple Records "Come Together."
