iPod Bookmarks

Today I learned something very good. The latest versions of iTunes allow you to configure a file to have a bookmark. That is, when you return to an audio file, it will remember where you last were. Audible books already have bookmarking built into their file format. However, we have a number of larger MP3 files which we enjoy. Unfortunately there are times when our place is lost due to someone else using the iPod or the iPod being off for too long. Now when we go back to that song, it will remember where we were. Marvellous!

How to set the file to allow bookmarks:
In iTunes highlight the file, right click and select "Get Info".
Select the "Options" tab and then just tick "Remember playback position". Easy as that!
