This updated edition of David Pogue's immensely popular Mac guidebook 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.
The most authoritative book for Mac users of all technical levels and experience, this Missing Manual 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 introductions to:
* The Dock, the Mac OS X folder structure, and Mail -- all faster and with new Snow Leopard-only features
* iLife apps such as iMovie, iDVD, and iPhoto -- each with its own mini-manual
* 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
* Snow Leopard's new support for Microsoft Exchange, and how you can best use it
* Features such as Spaces for organizing tasks, and Time Machine for backups
* Quick tips for setting up and configuring your Mac to make it distinctive
There's something new on practically every page of this edition, and David Pogue brings his celebrated wit and expertise to every one of them. No wonder it continues to be one of the most popular computer books of all time.
