    My whole family currently uses my iTunes account to download music. The family also uses the iPad. I have an iPod Shuffle that I share with another person in my family.

    What would you recommend to organize my device's/computer's music?

    Should I auto-sync or manual-sync?

    It's kind of a dumb question, but it gets hectic thinking of all the combinations about how my family uses one account to buy music and then uses the iPad, and sometimes one other person uses my iPod Shuffle for it...

    Actually, after iCloud appeared all your music will be pushed to all your devices/iTunes.

    Oh, if there's no way to filter the music when iCloud pushes the music to your devices, then I guess I'll have songs that other family members downloaded from my account? Would the only way to filter this be through manual filtering.
