Tips

Welcome to the Jungle

Icon_tip_1

Congratulations! With your iPod in hand, you have a virtual wilderness to discover—an empty treasure chest just waiting to be filled with all the things you love.  

In the first 30 days of mastering the iPod and its companion software, iTunes, you’ll transform what may have seemed wild and impenetrable into an open plane of digital delight customized to your tastes.

In the next 30 days, you can expect to:

  • Become adept at importing and ripping music (and understand what that means).
  • Learn some of the powerful but little-known features of the iPod and iTunes.
  • Learn how to utilize your iPod for portable data and picture storage.

Remember that no one starts out as an expert; consider yourself an explorer, instead. Start by familiarizing yourself with the hardware and software and how things are supposed connect. Read the literature included in the box. Some things will seem familiar, some things will seem a little foreign. Push a few buttons, turn the iPod on and off, connect it to your computer and see what happens. Don’t worry; you’re not going to break it.

You can do this! With a little guidance, that tiny miracle of portable technology in your hands can become virtually limitless. How’s that for power?

DID YOU KNOW? The very first song ever played utilizing iTunes was called “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love),” by Spiller, and was imported to and played on an iPod prototype in August 2001.
