Mac OS X the Missing Manual 2nd Editionby David Pogue
Synopses & Reviews
New York Times computer columnist David Pogue has just updated his bestselling Mac OS X: The Missing Manual! And once again, he applies his scrupulous objectivity to this exciting new operating system, revealing which new features work well and which do not.
The first edition of Mac OS X: The Missing Manual was the #1 bestselling computer book of 2002, selling 100,000 copies in six months. Now David Pogue brings his humor and expertise to this completely rewritten, greatly expanded edition.
This updated edition details the many changes in OS X 10.2. Pogue includes new chapters on iChat (Apple's AOL-compatible instant-messaging software), Sherlock 3 (the Web search tool that pulls critical Web information directly onto the desktop), and the new Finder.
This book combines Apple's trademark visual elegance with the underlying stability of UNIX, which adds up to a rock-solid operating system. Pogue covers each of the control panels and bonus programs that come with Mac OS X, including iTunes, Mail, Sherlock, and Apache, the built-in Web-server.
Mac OS X: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition illuminates both the big-ticket features and the fine points of Mac OS X version 10.1: its UNIX-like folder structure, powerful networking and Internet features, and even the command-line interface of its UNIX underbelly. Also covers each of the control panels and bonus programs that comes with Mac OS X, including iTunes, Mail, Sherlock, and Apache, the built-in Web-server.
