Do not put AIFF uncompressed audio files on your iPod. You can ruin your iPod by making your iPod battery wear out much more quickly since the iPod's hard drive has to work harder with AIFF uncompressed files. * Page 101 Eject Discs from stuck Powerbooks, iBooks, G4 Cubes that do not have manual eject holes. * Page 145 Information on iPodÕs Battery Life Page 147 Sound Check Page 157 Burning CDs or DVDs.

Pro Reaction Back cover inside has the essential keyboard shortcuts for iLife applications. The book has a very good description of iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand programs with an indepth usage of the Apple iPods and mini iPods. Con Reaction 'What Does This Book Cover?' pages should have been retitled: 'Contents at a Glance' and put in the front of the book. All the illustrations in the iLife book are in black and white and could have had color illustrations for the iPhoto and iMovie sections. Final Remarks Guy Hart-Davis provided me with important information on how to best use my iPod. I learned that putting AIFF sounds into my iPod could ruin my iPod's hard drive.
