Mostly Lisa’s 60 second Mac Tip #1

Did you know that you can control the in & out point of a song in iTunes?

Well you can. You can start a song 18 seconds in and skip a super lame intro. Here’s how.

Pretty useful tip, don’t you think?

If you already knew this then I crown you King Smarty Pants. We all bow in your honour.

    Since then, I’ve stuck with a Stiletto 2 from SIRIUS with a memory card in it. You can buy MP3’s from

    Yeah, I`knew that.
    Where it`s useful is on hidden tracks. Check out the ones by Alanis Morissette and Tori Amos and bJORKJoss Stone (common theme here, anyone?). sA
