Publisher Comments:

Get the scoop on iTunes 9 and all of the newest iPods with this bestselling Missing Manual. Apple's gotten the world hooked on portable music, pictures, and videos with its amazing entertainment center, but one thing they haven't delivered is an easy guide for getting the most out of it. That's where this book comes in.

iPod: The Missing Manual, now in its 8th edition, provides a no-nonsense view of the latest iPod line, including the tiny Shuffle, the video-capable Nano, the high-capacity Classic, and the Wi-Fi-enabled Touch. With crystal-clear explanations and easy-to-follow color graphics, the book provides expert guidance on all of the amazing things you can do:

  • Fill 'er up. Load your Nano, Classic, Touch, or Shuffle with music, movies, and photos, and learn how to play it all back.
  • Share music and movies. Copy music between computers with Home Sharing, beam playlists around the house, and whisk your Nano's videos to YouTube.
  • iTunes, tuned up. Pick-and-choose which music, movies, and photos to sync; create instant playlists with Genius Mix; and auto-rename "Untitled" tracks.
  • iPod power. Create Genius playlists on your iPod, shoot movies on your Nano, tap the Nano's FM radio and pedometer, and add voice memos to your Touch.
  • Tour the new iTunes Store. Find what you're looking for in a snap, and get lyrics, liner notes, and more with iTunes LP.

Even if you don't have one of the brand new iPods, this Missing Manual has plenty of information on iTunes 9, the App Store, and everything else you'll want to know. iPod: The Missing Manual is as useful, satisfying, and reliable as its subject.

Book News Annotation:

New York Times tech columnists — co-authors of other books in the Missing Manual series, get both new users and upgraders up and running quickly with the Classic, Nano, Shuffle, and Touch iPods. Colorful screen shots illustrate how to import songs from different sources, navigate the menus, change song formats, create playlists, play videos and slideshows on a TV, connect to a speaker system, and fix common problems.
