you guys are gonna be helping me through my "get to know you" stage with my macbook... whether you like it or not.

so is there any way to minimize iTunes so that there are still fastforward, pause, and rewind buttons available on-screen?

i combed through all menus and settings, and couldn't find anything.

thanks!

yes! just click on the green button in the top left corner. you should get a mini-window with those controls. it will normally go behind other windows once you start working with another application, unless you select "Keep MiniPlayer on top of all other windows" in the Advanced tab in Preferences. enjoy your macbook! :)

Good to hear you got one! Before you know your PC will be gathering dust. As for your question, macgirl has you covered.

it will be gathering dust for sure. especially when i get a copy of XP to bootcamp with.

btw, i took my mac and iPhone to work today and blew everyone's minds with the touchpad stuff. they were all sitting there checking out how well iTunes runs (just like everything else), meanwhile i hook up my phone through wifi and start playing a move.

their jaws dropped.

good times.
