This video shows how to sync an iPod shuffle with Ubuntu or Linux Mint 14. The whole process is explained very clearly and this will be very useful to anyone who wants to part ways with the extremely bloated and buggy iTunes software from Apple corporation. Also I have an E-Book here: http://www.securitronlinux.com/lc/Sync%20your%20iPad%20with%20Linux.pdf. This explains how to sync an iPad with Linux. That is also very useful to any Linux user who wants to work with their Apple device on a Linux operating system. Linux does support Apple iDevices, but this can be frustrating sometimes. Hopefully these resources will help you out.
