iTunes 11.1 released with iTunes Radio

Apple has released iTunes 11.1 to coincide with the release of iOS 7, and the firm's new iTunes Radio service that will rival the likes of Pandora.
iTunes 11.1 delivers iOS 7 device support as the latest iteration of the Apple mobile OS also rolled out today. iTunes 11.1 will be a requirement for devices running iOS 7, so keep that in mind.

The big new feature delivered to the Desktop in iTunes 11.1 - albeit for U.S. users only at this time - is iTunes Radio, an ad-supported personalized radio service that rivals Pandora. For those subscribed to iTunes Match ($25 a year), you will not have to suffer the advertisements.

Like Pandora, iTunes Radio offers custom stations based on artists, genres and other factors.

For Podcast consumers, Podcast Station will also create custom stations featuring your regularly downloaded podcasts. These will automatically update with new podcast and sync the playback position for each across your Apple devices.

You can download iTunes 11.1.0 for Windows (or the 64-bit version), or iTunes 11.1.0 for Mac OS X from AfterDawn.

I really doubt that itunes even cares to put in the fuzzy logic that finds new artists you might like from what it knows you like. They probably figure most of their customers don't care either and I bet they are right.
