Popular Mac OS X Book available in Snow Leopard edition

O'Reilly : 27 October, 2009  (New Product)
David Pogue's Mac OS X: The Missing Manual has been re-written to detail the latest changes to feature in the Snow Leopard version of the Apple operating system
For three consecutive years, one of the most popular computer books in the US has been David Pogue's Mac OS X: The Missing Manual. And now the beast is back. The new Snow Leopard edition offers a wealth of detail on Apple's newest operating system. Snow Leopard is faster and more reliable than earlier Mac OSX versions, and no one is more reliable at bringing you up to speed than David Pogue.

'Steve Jobs said that Apple was going to 'put a pause on new features' in Snow Leopard,' Pogue says, 'but not everyone got the memo. An insane amount has changed--tiny, tweaky things, under-the-hood things, and even some big, routine-changing things. Writing the ultimate, complete, most entertaining guide to all of it was absolutely exhausting, but I guess somebody's got to do it.'

The most authoritative book for Mac users of all technical levels and experience, Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly/Pogue Press) is amusing and fun to read, but Pogue doesn't take his subject lightly. Which features work well and which don't? What should you look for? What should you avoid?

You get all the answers with crystal-clear, jargon-free explorations of:

* Everything new: the rewritten Finder, 64-bit mode, Microsoft Exchange compatibility, build-them-yourself Services and keyboard shortcuts, self-waking networked Macs, and more

* The Dock, the Mac OS X folder structure, and Mail: all faster and with new Snow Leopard-only features

* Safari 4: the latest and best-performing Mac web browser

* QuickTime X: the new multimedia player that lets you trim and share clips to YouTube, MobileMe, and iTunes

* The coolest collection of tips, tricks, and undocumented shortcuts ever assembled

David Pogue, Yale '85, is the weekly personal-technology columnist for the New York Times and an Emmy award-winning tech correspondent for CBS News. His funny tech videos appear weekly on CNBC. And with 3 million books in print, he is also one of the world's bestselling how- to authors. In 1999, he launched his own series of amusing, practical, and user-friendly computer books called Missing Manuals, which now includes 100 titles.
