Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
So you’re thinking: To listen to a few MP3s on my iPod, I need a book? Well, you paid a lot for that iPod. If you want to get the most out of it, you do want a book. This one.

Whether you’ve got a Mac iPod (a.k.a. MiPod) that works with iTunes, or a Windows iPod (WiPod) that uses MUSICMATCH Jukebox Plus, this book’s for you. Everything music related is here, of course: ripping and uploading tunes, optimizing quality vs. disk space, organizing music libraries, creating playlists, troubleshooting, you name it. Got a Mac? You’ll learn how to use iTunes’ nifty equalization feature to make your music sound even better. Got Windows? You’ll learn how to use volume leveling to protect your precious eardrums -- even how to use MUSICMATCH Jukebox Plus as a musical alarm clock.

But music isn’t all your iPod can do. For one thing, it doubles as a PDA in stylish disguise. Guy Hart-Davis offers detailed coverage of all those features. There’s a full chapter on storing your contacts as vCards (and creating vCards from everything from Entourage to spreadsheet or database text files). There’s equally detailed coverage of iPod’s read-only calendar features (including integration with Apple’s iCal, Microsoft Outlook, and even Palm Desktop. Hart-Davis shows how to get other text onto your iPod (for example, downloading news headlines when you sync).

By the way, when we see Guy Hart-Davis’s name on a book, we know it’ll read as smooth as silk -- and be just plain fun, too. So it is here. Bill Camarda
