3rd paragraph of the page & caption of Figure 2-4 on the same page

There is minor mistake in the third paragraph: "The iTunes music store organizes its thousands of songs by album, artist and then genre..." In fact, a genre is selected first. The text should read, "The iTunes music store organizes its thousands of songs by genre, artist and then album..." The mistake is repeated in the caption in Figure 2-4: "The iTunes Music Store categorizes songs by album, artist and then genre."

Note from the Author or Editor:
So, this erratum was found in the first edition of the book. The second edition omits this section entirely, so the erratum isn't there at all in the second edition. Can I assume this can be safely ignored at this point?
