Right now I’ve got iTunes converting songs off a CD to MP3s, transferring other MP3s to the iPod and playing a third batch of songs. And it seems capable of doing these three tasks with minimal effort. (For a while it was also doing some level calibration on the other songs on the iPod, but that was starting to drain resources.) I love multitasking! If only I could grade papers and blog at the same time, I’d be in multitasking heaven.
Now I just have to decide how many of these albums I want/need to buy from the iShop. How many new CDs can I get at once before the marginal value of each new CD goes to 0?
