When Apple released iTunes 10.0.1 the software’s sidebar was renamed to the ‘Ping Sidebar’ and it removed Genius Recommendations from the side. Today, Apple brought Genius Recommendations back to the sidebar and renamed the bar to something more fitting: ‘iTunes Sidebar.’

We think users will enjoy this change as having your Genius recommendations at your side (pun intended) is very convenient for your music buying – and Apple for that matter.
