On the new “MacVoices” (http://www.macvoices.com), Karen Anderson, long an editor of Take Control books, talks about authoring her first title, “Take Control of iPhone Basics, iOS 4 Edition.”

She discusses why you can be happy with an iPhone 3GS, especially if you have limited needs, but why the iPhone 4 is still at the top of the heap. No matter which iPhone you select, Anderson helps you get more out of it by reviewing some of the features built in to both the device itself, as well as iTunes that are often overlooked,
including Visual Voicemail and prevention of duplicate app purchases.

Along the way, she touches on HDR photography, using the iPhone 4’s flash, the usability of FaceTime, the need for a “data strategy” for media purchasing and data syncing, and offers some unusual app recommendations.

“MacVoices” is an Internet show and podcast that delivers in-depth discussions with the most influential people in the Mac industry, as well as “the individuals who are out there making it happen on the front lines of the global Apple community,” according to host Chuck Joiner.
