Kirk McElhearn is an expert technical journalist for all things Apple. He's known as "The iTunes Guy" and has a regular column at Macworld. His career started in France as a translator of technical material, and that led to his career as a writer. Kirk has written many books about the Mac as well as several "Take Control Books," including tutorials on iTunes, Audio Hijack and Scrivener. Kirk lives in the UK, and he loves Shakespearean plays and classical music. Clearly this is a man after my own heart. We've followed each other for years, and so I was eager to interview him. In the second half of the show, we both have some rather sharp observations about iTunes that you won't want to miss.
