TidBits has published “Take Control of Media on Your iPad, Second Edition” (US$15) by Jeff Carlson.

The author covers the basics, so even new iPad users can get up to speed quickly. For those who want to go further, Carlson expands their media universe, helping them explore a variety of options, whether they want to read ebooks, enjoy music or audiobooks, watch video, or view photos. The ebook also helps readers integrate their iPad with an Apple TV, and it has tips that will help iPad 2 owners take better photos with that device’s cameras.

Carlson is the managing editor of TidBITS, a columnist for the “Seattle Times,” a frequent contributor to “Macworld,” and the author of best-selling books on the Mac, video editing, digital photography, and, in earlier incarnations, Web design and Palm organizers.
