In iTunes I can create an iMix with playlists, what exactly does it do? It uplaods them to the iTunes Music Store, yes? I dont know... need some explanation. Apple.com didnt help, nor iTunes Help, maybe I'ven't looked hard enough.

I posts the list of tracks for people to see and preview. It only works with tracks that are available on the store.

This is just a sly way of getting the users to do the advertising and marketing for Apple and company. John likes artists X, Y, and Z and puts them together on an iMix. Jane likes John's compilation and buys some songs from it and puts up her own iMix. Repeat!

I think it's just a personally chosen playlist that can be viewed/shared with others via iTMS. Like Celebrity playlists, but done by ordinary people. It's another way of enabling people to find more artists/songs that they may like based on similar music preferences.

Be an iTunes Celebrity

Did they like the mix at your last party? Let your friends find the tracks on the iTunes Music Store easily. Publish your playlist as an iMix on the Music Store. Just as with a Celebrity Playlist, you can write liner notes about the picks, explaining your influences. iTunes saves your iMix for a whole year, so you can send your lists to new friends, too. For an iMix, iTunes creates a mosaic of cover art from your purchased albums, just like printing a cover for a mix CD. You’ll see your mix on the album page for songs in your mix, and other iTunes Music Store customers can rate your iMix.

Well it can be useful when you want to tell people something about you through your choice of music.

I enjoy the Death iMixes.

You know, "these are the tunes that were on Bobby's iPod when he ran his suburu into the semi."
