However, the big news was that there was no news about Steve Jobs. His appearance was reassuring to the press and should silence some criticism for awhile. At the same time, it's clear he's letting his direct reports run more of the show, which starts making succession a bit clearer.

Oops, I meant to say that you click on the small genius icon in the top middle where it shows the title and time played/remaining and it will open a window in list mode of the songs included in the genius mix.

I'm afraid that's not correct. What happens when you click on that Genius icon is that a new Genius playlist is created based on the currently playing track in the Genius Mix. You can see for yourself by paying attention to the four artists who appear in the artwork. You'll see when you click the Genius icon that not all of those artists (or any of the others, perhaps) appear in the playlist that appears. Also, at the top of the pane, it tells you that the playlist is based on that track.

I agree completely. It seems very odd to me that you can't look inside one of these mixes. Like you, I once thought the Genius icon was the way in (because I couldn't believe there wasn't one) but after examining the contents of the playlist I realized it wasn't what I was after.
