In This Episode:

* Erik Fisher shares why he loves Snow Leopard and the improvements that it has meant to several processes that he runs.

* Mary called to say that iTunes 9 has broken her ability to sync Smart Playlists. (Note, I believe our friend Lee Andrew from the gspn.tv Community Forum helped solve this issue when he wrote…. “Personally not having any issues with iTunes. That said, everyone else who did, I told them to change to only selected podcasts from the playlists. So in the Podcast tap, make sure you scroll down to see Include Episodes From Playlists.”

* Tess called in to say that she really enjoys the feature that allows you to share music between authorized machines on your personal network.

* Mary Martin called in and explained that she has never synced her iPhone to a computer before. She's concerned about syncing between both work and computers and losing all her data. We discuss our suggestion for her.
