Book News Annotation:
For those newly plugging in to the iPod, that revolutionized listening to music when it came out in 2001, or upgrading to a model that can also play video, a New York Times technology columnist explains the gadget's functions and troubleshooting more fully than its official accompanying pamphlet. Updating the 2006 edition, Biersdorfer covers the basics of loading the iPod Classic, Nano, or iPod Shuffle, to navigating the Web with the iPod Touch or iPhone.
