Asking the iTunes Guy

Two weeks ago, a group of us gathered around the virtual table to grind iTunes into the dust. As much fun as it is to second-guess our betters, it's not always helpful. In this episode we once again look at iTunes, but this time from the angle of problem solving and oft-overlooked features. We do that with Macworld's Ask the iTunes guy, Kirk McElhearn.

Copy Tag Info Tracks to Tracks v3.0

Search-Replace Tag Text v3.1

Roman Numerals to Upper Case v1.0

Remove n Characters From Front or Back v4.4

We also talked a bit about Jason Snell's iTunes: Time to Right the Syncing Ship (a form of which also appears in this month's issue of Macworld).
