    I don't know about you guys but I was not pleased when I noticed that the genius sidebar was gone and had been replaced with the Ping sidebar (which I never use ever). Its quiet disappointing since it was one of the features in iTunes that I liked and used quite often. Did they just simply forget to include it or has it for some reason been permanently discontinued?...

    Judging by the popularity of this thread its seems people dont really care for it that much so its probably never coming back....

    I think at the very least they should have an option to switch between the two. Ping is absolute garbage.

    Yeah... Jobbs is really pushing this Ping sh*t down our throats hard. I will not be surprised when iTunes DJ becomes Ping Mix or watever they decide to call it.

    Genius never really worked for me, so I'm not that sad to see it go.

    Yeah; I did it. Just uninstall the current version and find 10.0.0 on the Internet somewhere and install it. It keeps all of your preferences too!
