For three consecutive years, one of the most popular computer books in the U.S. 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.
The most authoritative book for Mac users of all technical levels and experience, Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The 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 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
