    1. Sync Google Cal with my iCal
    2. Sync my contacts between Google and Address Book

    Next up: cleaning up my iTunes library!

    I need to add album artwork and correct artists/albums.

    Any suggestions?

    Either do it through iTunes "Get Album Artwork" or, like I do on an occasion, open another browser window to Amazon.com and look up the CD. When you find it, open that one up to a larger image, copy and paste it to the info screen for the Album. Good for the obscure CD's I imported.

    I suggest correcting artists/albums first, because if these are correct, then Advanced > Get Album Artwork might find some more missing artwork. For the rest, I typically just Google images with the artist & album name, then drag correct images to iTunes, but have also heard there is an app to find artwork. Also, for correcting artists/albums, remember that you can highlight several songs together, right-click, and fix the common attributes for multiple songs at once (works for artwork to, so you can drag once to designate an image for all songs on an album).

    First 2 were easy, with your 3rd resolution it can take much longer - it depends how big is your library. What I do is whenever I'm listening my iTunes I rate every song with stars. After some time I sort and delete every song with one star (*)

    I *just* finished doing this... wasn't a resolution or anything just wanted to get it down cuz I'm OCD about it.

    What I did for the album artwork was select all my songs and erase the album artwork and then did get album artwork from iTunes. And for the rest I would just search the song in iTunes to make sure artist/album was right and then right click and get album artwork but that sometimes didn't work so I went to albumartexchange.com. Great site. Also used wiki a lot. I'm soooo glad I'm done. Good luck! :D
