Tip: Multiple iTunes Libraries

As much as hard drives keep getting bigger, so does the media that we keep on it. In the era of High Definition and music libraries that include songs in the thousands, sometimes keeping separate libraries is the key.
Fortunately iTunes does that. I still only have a 160GB drive on my laptop and I don’t […]

Let’s Rock.. Sorta

My previous post asked the question “Will Apple’s Lets Rock, Rock?”. Now that the event has passed, in my personal opinion, it slightly did. Barely.
Maybe I was not really feeling it anymore or maybe I was just expecting too much but the event really didn’t excite me as much as previous Apple events. However it […]

Will Apple’s Lets Rock, Rock?

Apple’s “Let’s Rock” event is barely a few days away. There’s talk of new iPods (leaked photo of the new iPod nano), iTunes 8 and new iPhone software.
Truth be told, for the past Apple events I have been underwhelmed. Will this event wow me? Chances are no. Why? Because as much as I’d like to […]

HD Content Coming To The iTunes Store

Let me preface that this is pure speculation. I haven’t read, yet, that this is actually true. BUT…
Apple just released a new decoder that is visually lossless and provides uncompressed HD quality at SD data rates. This means HD quality in a smaller file size, which has been one of the biggest obstacles listed for […]

iPods Bridging Language Barriers

According to this story from Apple Insider, the US Military is experimenting with iPods as a form of a translator. The iPod provides translation for soldiers and Iraqi citizens.
The iPod is less threatening and because it’s so universal already, some Iraqis are also familiar with it already. It has bridged the cultural divide.
The software running […]

Spreading Out Your Mac to an External Hard Drive

Lately my Hard Drive has been getting kind of full. This has made things run a little slower than I’d like (especially PhotoShop), but it also limited my ability to import more CD’s from my wife’s collection into iTunes or import as many pictures as we’ve been taking of the new baby. So I decided […]

5 Billion and Counting

Yep, that’s how much songs have been sold through iTunes. It’s changed the way we buy and listen to music. At least I know it has for me. This is according to a recent report at MarketWatch.
Just the other day I found myself the happy recipient of several iTunes gift cards from my dad. I […]

The Last Lecture Audio Book Now Available On iTunes

I don’t normally plug music, movies or books here in TAM, however I’ll make an exception for this case. For those of you who aren’t familiar with “The Last Lecture”, this was a talk given by Prof. Randy Pausch of the Carnegie Melon University.
It’s been a tradition for the school’s professors to give a […]
