O’Reilly has announced the release of “iPod & iTunes Hacks” by Hadley Stern. The US$24.95 book “takes curious and clever iPod owners beyond the obvious with 100 hacks that delight, entertain, and add astonishing power” to the iPod and iTunes experience. “The book includes hacks written by experts in their field,” explains Stern. “The ‘Install Linux on Your iPod’ hack was written by Bernard Leech, who developed the software. It’s the same with the AppleScript iTunes chapter written by Doug Adams, who runs the definitive site on AppleScript for iTunes.” In fact, contributors to the book come from the United States, Canada, Romania, England, Germany, and Japan. “There’s no book out there that covers the breadth and depth of ‘iPod and iTunes Hacks,'” says Stern.
