How to create smart playlists in iTunes

azdude, in your review you noted that all criteria are treated as “AND”, but in itunes 4 for oxX, i can select AND for multiple criteria or i can choose OR.

also, Mark, i believe if you make an on the go list, my itunes (osx) automatically syncs it to itunes naming it “on-the-go 1” or something, and if you rate a song on ipod it changes the rating in itunes, same for question one. however this is probably only for people like me who select “automatically sync entire library”, which is not what you want to do…i believe there is a program that can help you witht his, (i think it was posted on the front page maybe a week ago?) but i am not positive.

A look at the iPod mini

The mini is pretty cool, but not my cup of tea. I have about 1GB of music, selectivly culled from my entire CD collection, some audibooks and downloads from iTunes on my 20 GB. Why do people carry around music they will never listen to? I don’t know. But I’m happy with all my extra space- I could record every single lecture I sit for for years and have them immediatly accessable, or extract pictures from my digital camera on trips, and still have enough room for music. Even 4 GB is great, 13 hours of music! If apple releases a white (as opposed to silver) mini, I’d buy it. The colors do irk me a little- they bring to mind easter eggs and such. The iPod, and Apple in general, survive because of the interface, lightyears ahead of the others. I just think the people who bash it are kinda jealous…

First Looks: iTrip, iPod Armor & FlipStand

With the itrip being one of the best things since sliced bread, but the is a problem.  The iskin is no doubt the best way to protect you pod, but unfortunately the itrip wont work or fit while in the iskin, does anyone know if the is an adaptor to correct this, or will i just have to keep filling away the trip case inorder for it to fit, so griffin and iskin, please talk to each other to sort this prob out…

How to create playlists in iTunes


Having copies of your music on your PC is by far the most convient way to do it…

...However, no—You do not need to keep all the songs on your computer.  Use Manual sync mode, and you can delete them after you transfer.

However, you lose several nifty features this way, and you can’t ignore the threat of losing all your music should your iPod fail or need to be updated.

In my opinion, if you’re planning on buying a $500 40GB iPod, it would be a good “accessory” to buy a $50 40GB Hard Drive for your PC as well.

The iPod mini Reaction Roundup

I will definitely be getting the iPod mini (hopefully)...I only have about 1 Gig of music, so I wouldn’t need 15 GB…and I guess I could use the rest for storing

I also hope that it will go down in price…by 50 by April. If possible…

How to burn a CD in iTunes

I believe that *tiny* gaps in MP3/AAC is an unavoidable consequence of the encoding process.  Check out this link for further explanation:

BTW, the following won’t help when listening on the iPod or on burned CDs, but when listening in iTunes, you can turn on “Crossfading.”

If the gaps are more important to you than the ability to select a certain track, then when you import, select “Join Tracks” to rip the entire album to one continuous track.  That’s about all you can do for now.

How to burn a CD in iTunes

Your article on how to burn with iTunes was great and had no problems burning with it after reading it. The problem I encountered was getting a slight gap between songs. Not a 2 second or even 1 second gap, but like a little glitch between tracks. I have my files saved at 128kbps in AAC.
I thought at first it just maybe iTunes that has the tiniest of gaps between tracks, but when I burn the tracks under Nero, my other burning sofware, there is the smallest of glitches between tracks as well. I have burned other CDs using Nero and all the tracks seem to flow as it were one big track, but not when importing songs from iTunes.
Also when I play my iPod there is the smallest little gaps between songs. Is there anyway to get rid of this as well? I listen to a lot of live shows so when there are gaps it gets really annoying.
Just a note: I have imported all of my songs onto my iPod using iTunes. Is there something about iTunes that has a problem flowing tracks seemlessly together?And if so is Apple in the works to fix it? Is it just AAC that does this? A certain AAC speed? Am I doing something wrong? Sorry for all the questions just want to be able to fix it.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

I’m in the Army currently serving in Kosovo. I work in the TOC (tactical operations center) I HAD a 2gen 20 gb and finally received my 3gen 40gb AND I LOVE IT. The IPOD is one of the things keeping me going, I’m constantly answering questions from other soldiers and local nationals here asking me what it is and where to get one. I’ll try to get pictures up soon.

How to fill a 5Gb iPod

I’ve unchecked lots (and I mean LOTS) of my music, but when i try to sync ALL the songs show up on the list and iTunes tells me there is not room on my tiny 5 GB iPod for everything.  What am I doing wrong here - aside from trying to do anything with a PC (be gentle!)

How to burn a CD in iTunes

If only it were that simple.  A huge number of Windows users have never been able to burn a cd with iTunes.  And Apple has yet to address the issue.

Check out this thread in the Apple discussion forums for more info.

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

To expand on my last message…. I was able to get my recent songs list to work by changing the “Limit to…selected by” section from “most recently added” to “random”.  Don’t know why it worked, but it did!

A look at the iPod mini

Alex Heaton, thank you for your point of view, although it does outline your own primitiveness and insecurities it was much appreciated to read another point of view on the Mini iPod.

However, if you calmed down and actually read my post you should have picked up that I was not being insulting at all but merely stating a slight confusion, and only wanted to be set straight in a dignified fashion (which an individual managed to do, thank you Atomic Bomb also various other people) and on that point I admit I was wrong to say that “apple are making a huge marketing mistake” I had nt realised who they were marketing to in the first place.

Anyway, it was my BELIEF that it would make a much more effiecient purchase if one was to obtain the 15GB iPod as opose to the new Mini iPod, and also that the 15GB, 20GB and 40GB iPods are better looking.  But there is a fine line between belief and opinion and it is “closed-mindedness that you have to attack [my] believes”

TAPs and Obsolete iPods

I hate CompUSA in Cleveland Ohio. I work for a bussiness that had warranties with them, and the service was non-existant when we needed it. A store filled with low-life scum that sell you an on-site service plan but don’t mention that it is exceeded by the manuf. warranty and so does nothing. Had another item that took them 3 YEARS to get me a new monitor.
