Tech Tip Tuesday: Get more out of iTunes.

Last week Steve Jobs and Apple Computers announced a new iTunes and new iPod Touch. (Watch the announcement here)

ITunes itself got a facelift.  There is a new view that allows you to see album artwork if it doesn't create wasted space, the sidebar items are now grey instead of multi-colored (a feature some don't like because it means the loss of a visual cue). ITunes also has improved syncing.  You can now see how far over the mark you are with your sync settings.  Ping a social network centered around your music and music preferences was also launched.   Screen shot 2010-09-08 at 10.58.54 AM

Finally, iTunes has a whole page of Apps just for Back to school.  Check out the new iTunes.
