I have this awesome problem where my friends are constantly sending me new music to check out. They send me so much that keeping track of it can be a challenge. My iTunes library is a cluttered closet full of hand-me-downs and unworn one-offs, and when I import something new, I’m just throwing it blindly into that closet. Finding it later to actually listen to it requires a combination of determination and organization.
In this post, I’ll tell you how to fix that using an iTunes feature called a Smart Playlist.
By following the steps below, you can make a playlist on your computer that will automatically update itself with new music you’ve imported into your iTunes library. You can even set it update on your devices automatically whenever you sync. You can customize it pretty much however you want, including how many songs it should contain (or how much space it can take up), and how it should pick them.
I agree. Still cool, though. A grad student made the model by hanging tubes with wire, then pumped liquid through them of colors to match the train lines.
