“iTunes is an amazing new application from Apple that is simply the best way to manage digital music and burn custom CDs,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “With more than 275,000 copies downloaded, it’s clear that iTunes is a huge hit with Mac users.”
iTunes allows users to import songs from a CD, compress them into the popular MP3 format, and store them on their computer’s hard drive. The program also lets the user listen to hundreds of Internet radio stations; watch visualizations on the computer screen; and create custom music CDs on Apple’s new Power Mac G4s with CD-RW drives.
In order to burn a CD, you must use iTunes with one of Apple’s new CD-RW drives — third-party drives will be supported in the coming months.
