My app store genius no longer works...anyone else?

For some reason, when I select genius from the wifi appstore, it's telling me to dl some items first; it just shows the atomic molecule image instead of a list as it used to. Believe it or not, I discovered some great games through genius.

Has this happened to anyone else? Perhaps Apple is modifying it in prep for ios 6?

Same here, also my AppStore keeps spitting out "your request could not be completed" at me whenever I go to the featured section.

Same here, now for about 2 weeks. I'm glad I'm not the only one...

Now itunes on my PC isn't recognizing all of my purchased apps as having been purchased, and the view purchases button isn't working. Dammitsomuch, I HATE iTunes.

My genius keeps saying "you have no recommendations" as well!
Also, when I try to do an update it keeps on saying "cannot be installed", or when it does install the update information is still there in the app store!

The "Worlds Most Valuable Company" will only remain so for as long as their products are considered "no drama" devices.

If electronics could talk, I'm sure that my 3dfx graphics card, Adlib sound card, Sony Minidisc player, Dreamcast, and Atari Lynx would take my iphone out back for a stern lecture.
