At the January 2001 Macworld Expo, Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced iTunes, Apple's free digital music software. iTunes is a new application that offers the best way to manage digital music and burn custom CDs. With more than 275,000 copies downloaded the first week, it's clear that iTunes is a huge hit with the Macintosh community. For most users, managing their music collection on their hard disk, ripping MP3s from audio CDs, burning audio CDs, and finding music on the Web are all going to be new experiences. That's where The Little iTunes Book comes in. Readers will learn how to create MP3 files from audio CDs, listen to Internet radio stations, and search and browse their music collection. Once users have mastered the basics of this compelling new software, there will be no stopping them: they'll create custom playlists, use iTunes with portable MP3 players, and share music with friends and family.
