Working with the Apple iPod

note

The iPod's chief drawback is that it only plays digital audio files in the AAC and MP3 formats. (AAC is somewhat proprietary to Apple.) It does not play files in Microsoft's WMA format. So you won't be able to play WMA files downloaded from Napster and similar sites on your iPod device.


The most popular portable music player today is the Apple iPod. Apple sells several different versions of the iPod, including the standard-sized iPod shown in Figure 33.1, the compact iPod Mini, and the ultra-small iPod Shuffle. And, unlike every other product that Apple sells, the iPod is the one device that works equally well with Macintosh or Windows computers.
