iPod: The Missing Manual
Covers iTunes and the Touch, Classic, Nano, and Shuffle iPodsGot a new iPod? This new, up-to-the-nanosecond 7th edition of "iPod: The Missing Manual" can help you get your new iPod out of the box and into your ears in 15 minutes.
"You'll learn a bit about your particular iPod model and how to get it whistling sweet tunes in your ear in a minimal amount of time," notes author J.D. Biersdorfer, who also pens the technology Q & A column for the New York Times. "If you want more information on in-depth iPodding or getting the most out iTunes, you can find that stuff in chapters farther down the road."
Written by Biersdorfer and David Pogue, the New York Times' award-winning tech columnist, "iPod: The Missing Manual" is as stylish and satisfying as its subject. Each custom-designed page sports easy-to-follow graphics, crystal-clear explanations, and guidance on the most useful things your iPod can do.
Out of the box and into your ears. Learn how to install iTunes, load music on your iPod, and master the basic moves you need to get anywhere--and find anything--on your pocket player.
Bopping around the iPod. Whether you've got a tiny Shuffle, a Nano, a Classic, or the iPod Touch, you'll learn everything from turning your iPod on and off to booming its sound all over the house. Special tidbit for iPod owners with trickster friends: How to reset the iPod's menus to English if they've been changed to, say, Greek.
In tune with iTunes. iTunes can do far more than your father's jukebox. Learn how to use the brand-new Genius feature to make instant, inspired playlists, how to move your sacred iTunes Folder to a bigger hard drive, and how to add album covers to your collection.
The power of the 'Pod. Download movies and iPod Touch applications, play photo slideshows and games, find cool podcasts, and more: this book shows you how to unleash all your iPod's power.
Even if you don't buy one of the new iPod models, this Missing Manual has plenty of information on the latest version of iTunes, the App Store and a whole lot more about Apple's incredible device.
