Adam and Tonya Engst on Friday released a new ebook in their popular “Take Control” series. “ Take Control of Your iPod: Beyond the Music ” is a 128 page ebook written by Steve Sande that gives users advice on how to use the iPod as more than a music player. Among the topics in the book are using the iPod as a read-only PDA for calendar events and contacts, off-loading photos to it from a digital camera, backing up a computer to an iPod, setting an iPod to put you to sleep at night and wake you in the morning and keeping it ready as an emergency boot drive. Sande also looks at other unusual iPod uses, such as giving presentations from an iPod, reading or listening to text-based ebooks, recording classes or meetings, and installing Linux on an iPod.
The new eBook is available for download from the Take Control Web site for $10.
