Seek in iTunes on the new Apple keyboards Other Hardware
On the new Apple keyboards, you not only can use the keyboard to make iTunes pause, or jump to the next/previous iTunes track, you can also seek forwards and backwards: by holding down F7 (Previous) or F9 (Next), iTunes will seek backward or forward.

[robg adds: This mimics the behavior of those buttons in the iTunes interface.]

Seek in iTunes on the new Apple keyboards

D'oh! I've had an aluminum keyboard since they came out, but I hadn't explored those keys at all. GREAT to know that this hint works, and it works no matter what app you have frontmost...

I have my F-keys set to have their "special" functions only work when the Fn key is pressed, fwiw, so I can still use those keys for other things...

I use Synergy to add a lot of extra iTunes functionality, but was frustrated that I couldn't create any 'scrub' functions that worked when iTunes wasn't the frontmost app... This is the solution!

Like I said, d'oh!!
