Breaking News!   Lectures now available on iTunes University!
Apple mobile users (iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone) can now view the audio/visual presentations at iTunes University. Go to iTunes and search “Southwestern College Finance” or alternatively, you can search for my last name … providing you can spell it correctly. (That’s P-A-I-A-N-O.) Thanks for your patience. I was hoping that Apple would eventually support the Flash format but it really looks as if they will not do so.
