Your Mac comes with some pretty amazing software. Even more’s free for the download. Think about it: iTunes, iPhoto, iDVD, iChat, iCal, iSync...and those are only the ones that start with “i.” Then there’s Safari, Sherlock,...wouldn’t it be great if one book covered them all? That would be Shelly Brisbin’s MacAddict Guide to Living the iLife.
Did you know how to import your Outlook Express addresses to Mac OS X Address Book? How to create DVD slideshows that’ll play on your TV? How to copy content from a PDF in Preview? You will. Even the “baby” apps are covered here (Calculator, Chess, Stickies...). Even the really obscure ones (Keychain Access). Hey, you paid good money for your Mac: Why not use all the goodies Apple gave you? Bill Camarda
