Book News Annotation:

This guide to the iPod provides step-by-step instructions on how to use its features, written in a casual and sometimes humorous tone. Kelby skips the technical jargon and explanations of how the iPod works in favor of explaining its features. The text--presented in brief paragraphs with accompanying illustrations--explains controls, finding songs and making playlists, downloading games and videos, troubleshooting, and creating podcasts. Also reviewed are security, use in a car, photo features, iTunes, accessories, and the iPod Shuffle. Kelby is the author of several computer books and the editor-in-chief of Photoshop User magazine.

Synopsis:

There is no denying it: With the introduction of the iPod and iTunes, Apple changed the face of music. While the iPod and iTunes are user-friendly, figuring them out for the first time can be tricky. Plus, they can do way more than meets the eye. In this fully updated best-seller, award-winning author, Scott Kelby, delivers what users need to know to get up to speed fast on Apple's popular iPod digital audio players and iTunes software.

Through full-color illustrations and simple step-by-step instructions, readers will learn all about: the brand new iPod touch, equipped with a multitouch interface, 3.5-inch widescreen display, and WiFi Web browsing; the iPod shuffle, sporting a new belt clip and new colors; the iPod nano, featuring a new glamorous square shape, video, an enhanced interface, larger and brighter display, and new colors; the iPod classic which now incorporates iTunes cover flow, enhanced interface, and a sleeker design; and the new iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, which now lets iPod users browse the iTunes Store and purchase music over a wireless connection straight onto their Apple mobile device.

Scott also provides the basics of how to share music between Macs and PCs; sync iTunes-created playlists as well as iPod-created voice notes; burn large playlists to CDs; download and watch videos; and more. Best of all, Scott has peppered the guide with tons of time-saving tips and tricks that typically can only be gleaned through hard-won experience.
