Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the tiny Shuffle, the Nano, the Classic, and the Touch, Apple's gotten the world hooked on portable music, pictures, videos — and the iPod. One thing they haven't delivered, though, is an easy guide for getting the most from this sleek entertainment center. Enter iPod: The Missing Manual, 7th Edition — a book as breathtaking, satisfying, and reliable as its subject.

Now in a sleek, travel-friendly size, this new edition provides a no-nonsense view of iTunes 8 and everything in the latest iPod line, with crystal-clear explanations, easy-to-follow color graphics, and guidance on all the amazing things you can do, including:

  • Out of the box and into your ears. Find out how to install iTunes and load music on your iPod. And get advice on buying copy-protection free songs from stores like Amazon and Rhapsody.
  • Bopping around the iPod. Learn everything from turning it on and off to shaking your iPod Nano to shuffle your tracks.
  • In tune with iTunes. Choose which parts of your iTunes library loads onto your iPod, move your sacred iTunes Folder to a bigger hard drive, and add album covers to your collection.
  • Picking playlists like a Genius. Let iTunes' new Genius feature whip up smart playlists from your library, and suggest songs from the iTunes Store that fit with what you already own.
  • The power of the 'Pod. Download movies and TV shows and learn how to play them on your iPod and finish viewing them on your TV. Play photo slideshows, find cool podcasts, and more.
  • Welcome to the App Store. Soup up your iPod Touch, from upgrading to the 2.0 firmware to installing the iTunes Store's nifty new collection of programs — including games that turn the Touch into a pocket 3-D arcade.

Even if you don't buy one of the new iPod models, this Missing Manual has plenty of information on the latest version of iTunes, the App Store and a whole lot more about Apple's incredible device.

Book News Annotation:

New York Times tech columnists/co-authors of other books in the Missing Manual series cover the basic and advanced features of the Classic, Nano, Shuffle, and Touch iPods for newbies or upgraders. The manual concludes with troubleshooting tips, Apple's tips for extending iPod battery life, and a pitch for the AppleCare insurance plan. A trial subscription to the online edition is available. The first edition was published in October 2008. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The iPod is one of the most gorgeous and sleek-looking devices ever invented. But underneath its slick exterior lies a full-powered entertainment center that lets users do so many things: listen to music; watch videos, TV shows, and movies; play video games; store calendars and contacts; and more. The one thing that Apple hasn't engineered is a guide to getting the most out of the powerful 'Pod. Enter iPod: The Missing Manual — a book as breathtaking as its subject. Teeming with high-quality color graphics, each custom designed page helps readers accomplish specific tasks — everything from installing iTunes to playing music on a stereo. Featuring the high quality writing readers expect from a Missing Manual, coverage includes the latest crop of iPods and the latest version of iTunes.
