The Barnes & Noble Review
Whatever iPod you own, whatever you do with iTunes, whatever you listen to -- or, nowadays, view -- this book will make your iExperiences even more fun. Tony Bove and Cheryl Rhoades have revised iPod & iTunes for Dummies to cover Apple’s newest gear, plus great new third-party goodies, too.

Here’s how to make the most of iTunes’ new podcast features. Here’s everything from viewing photo slideshows to displaying images on TV. Here’s everything involved in getting and managing music, from burning to buying, track data to Smart Playlists.

You’ll take your iPod on the road, connect it to your car’s sound system, even build a DJ setup around it. And you’ll find fixes for everything from short battery life to distortion problems. Because you wouldn’t want your iPod experience to be anything less than perfect. Bill Camarda, from the December 2005 Read Only
