Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
iPods and iTunes can do so much more than you ever imagined. It just takes a little exploring. Hadley Stern leads the way, in iPod and iTunes Hacks.

Here’s everything from playing games on your iPod to using it as a Dictaphone, importing lyrics to bulk-ripping CDs. Here’s how to expand iTunes’ capabilities, upload graphics to accompany your songs, even permanently install your iPod in your car.

Speaking of taking it on the road, runners and bikers will discover an aftermarket case that even has a flashing safety light. They’ll learn whose aftermarket headphones actually fit on your ears while still allowing enough ambient sound to let you know there’s a truck coming. Stern even finds a waterproof case for swimmers!

You’ll learn how to use Apple’s Airport Express to stream music from your iPod practically anywhere in your house. One drawback: no remote. Stern has hacks for that, too -- including one that controls iTunes from your cellphone. You’ll learn how to feed streaming audio to your iPod, too: perfect for time-shifting radio broadcasts. (Occasionally, a little scripting’s required. Don’t worry, the code’s all here.)

Contrary to popular wisdom, iPod batteries can be replaced. Apple didn’t design the iPod to support end-user tampering, but that never stopped us, did it? Here are step-by-step instructions for each generation of iPod, even the Mini. Don’t want to go inside? Hadley even shows how to build your own iPod Eternal Charger, using standard AA batteries. From tiny tweaks to big projects, iPod and iTunes Hacks does the impossible: It makes your iPod/iTunes experience even more fun. Bill Camarda, from the December 2004 Read Only
