Comments about oreilly iPod and iTunes Hacks:

While this is a good (e)book for those with other models of iPods, do NOT buy this if you want an ebook for your iPod Touch. The iPod Touch is not mentioned in this ebook (I did a search of the entire ebook - nothing turns up).

Hopefully, either the description will be updated to reflect the lack of iPT coverage (so more people don't waste their money), or O'Reilly will come out with an updated version of the book and ebook (and maybe provide a free update for those of us who got the book and found out too late...).

Another great hacks" book..."

By Eric

Comments about oreilly iPod and iTunes Hacks:

From "Importing Lyrics into iTunes and iPod" (#53) to "Install Your iPod in Your Car, Permanently" (#11). Plenty of things to tweak and try. If you like to tinker, pull things apart, or generally prefer to live outside the mainstream - you'll love this book.

Besides, who wouldn't want a book that contains the phrase, "Before I get into the specifics ... this hack is illegal." (#6)
