A group of us recently gathered around the virtual table to grind iTunes into the dust. As much fun as it is to second-guess our betters, it’s not always helpful. In this episode we once again look at iTunes, but this time from the angle of problem solving and oft-overlooked features. We do that with Macworld’s Ask the iTunes guy, Kirk McElhearn.
