Chapter 8. Hardware on the Mac > iTunes: The Digital Jukebox

8.9. iTunes: The Digital Jukebox

iTunes, in your Applications folder, is the ultimate software jukebox (Figure 8-13). It can play music CDs, tune in to Internet radio stations, load up your iPod music player, and play back digital sound files (including the Internet's favorite format, MP3).

It can also turn selected tracks from your music CDs into MP3 files, so that you can store favorite songs on your hard drive to play back anytime—without having to dig up the original CDs. If your Mac can burn CDs, iTunes lets you record your own custom audio CD mixes that contain only the good songs. Finally, of course, iTunes is the shop window for Apple's popular iTunes Music Store ($1 a song).
