    Do a google search for senuti - it's a free mac program that lets you take songs off your ipod and drop them into itunes (or any other folder).

    iPodRip does the same thing, and is also free.

    Sweet! Thanks for that pointer. I've got 3 machines with iTunes and 3 ipods. I can never keep track of which one's synced with what. This'll help bring content to any one of them.

    Provides the new user with basic functions. Heck, I've had my MBP for 15 months now and I am still learning a few things from them haha

    ok next question... last thing didnt answer mine too much since i was asking for a part of the os not external software, i know thers software for windows as well... but anyway

    question 1: in windows you can use ctrl + left or right to skip word by word through a line of text, how do you do this in a mac?

    question 2: when i tab through fields on a web form, mac skips select tags, why does it do this? i usually will tab from city to state, type p and get pennsylvania, then tab to zip. with mac i have to click the state dropdown with a mouse. i know its a mac issue because it happens even in firefox.

    thanks

    The first one, you hit option + left or option + right to skip word by word
    apple (command) + left or apple (command) + right will skip to the end or the front of a line of text.

    Shift + command + right will highlight a line of text
    Shift + command + down will highlight a block of text

    System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts:

    At the bottom for "Full Keyboard Access" make sure "All Controls" is set.
