Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the inception of iTunes, the iPod (the best-selling portable digital music player), and iTunes Music Store (Time magazine's Invention of the Year for 2003), Apple has taken the world of digital music by storm. The Absolute Beginner's Guide to iPod and iTunes, Third Edition, provides all the information that music and media fans need to get the most out of these amazing digital devices and tools. From the basics of listening to audio CDs to advanced customization of music on an iPod, this book equips even those who have never explored digital audio to master their digital music by using these awesome tools. The book covers both Windows and Macintosh platforms to reach the broadest possible audience. The book is organized into two major parts, with each focusing on an element of the iPod, and iTunes and finally a third part focusing on the iTunes Music Store. Along the way, it explains how all of these tools work together and shows readers how to get the most from them. It progresses from very basic topics in a logical manner to lead even absolute beginners on the path to musical mastery.
