Meet the Author

Edward C. Baig writes the weekly Personal Technology column in USA TODAY and is co-host of the weekly USA TODAY’s Talking Tech podcast. He is also the author of Macs For Dummies, 9th Edition, for Wiley Publishing. Before joining USA TODAY as a columnist in 1999, Ed spent six years at Business Week, where he wrote and edited stories about consumer tech, personal finance, collectibles, and travel, among other topics. He received the Medill School of Journalism 1999 Financial Writers and Editors Award for contributions to the “Business Week Investor Guide to Online Investing.” That followed a three-year stint at U.S. News & World Report, where Ed was the lead tech writer for the News You Can Use section but also dabbled in other subjects. He recalls fondly putting together features on baseball card investing, karaoke machines, and the odd things people collect, including Pez dispensers, vintage radios, and magic memorabilia.
Ed began his journalist career at Fortune magazine, gaining the best basic training imaginable during his early years as a fact checker. Through the dozen years he worked at the magazine, Ed covered leisure-time industries, penned features on the lucrative dating market and the effect of religion on corporate managers, and also started up Fortune’s Products to Watch column.

Bob LeVitus, often referred to as “Dr. Mac,” has written or co-written 50 popular computer books, including Dr. Mac: The OS X Files and Mac OS X Leopard For Dummies for Wiley Publishing; Stupid Mac Tricks and Dr. Macintosh for Addison-Wesley; and The Little iTunes Book, 3rd Edition and The Little iDVD Book, 2nd Edition for Peachpit Press. His books have sold more than a million copies worldwide. Bob has penned the popular Dr. Mac column for the Houston Chronicle for the past ten years and has been published in dozens of computer magazines over the past fifteen years. His achievements have been documented in major media around the world. (Yes, that was Bob juggling a keyboard in USA Today a few years back!)
Bob is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on Mac OS. From 1989 to 1997, he was a contributing editor and columnist for MacUser magazine, writing the Help Folder, Beating the System, Personal Best, and Game Room columns at various times. In his copious spare time, Bob heads up a team of expert technical consultants who do nothing but provide technical help and training to Mac users via telephone, e-mail, and Internet-enabled remote control software, which allows them to see and control your Mac no matter where in the world you may be. If you’re having problems with your Mac, you ought to give them a try.

    I'm No Technowiz, But This Book Helped Me A Lot!

    My husband bought me a new iPhone and showed me the basics (like how to turn it on and how to make a simple phone call). I then went on a trip to visit my parents and didn't have a lot to do, so I went to my local Barnes and Noble and found this book on how to operate my new phone. I went through each chapter and learned so much. I must admit that I have always relied on my husband to give me the bare bones tutorial on how to operate any technical item. They just aren't my "thing." But not having him there at my parent's house made me learn about the phone on my own. There's a lesson in that. Now I'm going to go back and buy the "Dummies" books on how to operate other appliances in my household. Just takes a little time, but it cements in the knowledge of how to get the most out of your technical items.

    Now I understand my iPhone

    This has been a great help. Being one of the "older generation" the new gadgets are a bit confusing. With this book I am able to expand my knowledge of what the phone can do and I can make it do it. I was able to download three books and one song. I'm a grandma on a roll!

    Great Reference Guide for People Who are New to the iPhone

    I was the last one in my family to get an iPhone since I hate learning a new phone; it's such a time consuming trial-and-error process! The Dummies book was VERY USEFUL in easing my transition from a Moto Q (like a Blackberry) to the iPhone. Although there were parts of the book that were VERY elementary, I was able to easily locate the useful information and tips I needed to quickly get me up to speed and comfortable using the iPhone. I've even shared the tips with my husband, parents, and siblings, all of whom have had iPhones for a while and were unaware of all it could do. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to people who need to become comfortable with the iPhone and all it can do!

    HANDY AND HELPFUL

    I found it a great help in finding answers quickly. Recommended that you read it through, cover to cover, and then go back to specific features you need help with. Keep it handy and use it periodically when the need arises to brush up on something. Love that iPHone!

    Great reference Book for those who are technically challenged or NOT

    iPhone For Dummies is very useful when "stumped" on what to do with error messages and/or no funciton at all. The instructions are clear and to the point and will definitely ease the stress when things "go wrong" and you havent's a clue about what to do.
