Overview

When the last edition of The Macintosh Bible was published Mac OS X was still in its infancy, the full suite of free Mac iLife apps had yet to appear, and the idea of switching from a PC to a Mac was still considered heresy by most Windows aficionados. Obviously, a lot has changed: Here to address those changes is the 9th Edition of the most comprehensive Mac resource on the planet. Offering an expanded chapter on digital media, a new appendix on switching (not just from Windows to Mac OS X but from earlier Mac OS versions as well), an increased focus on the newest (and newly mature) OS X versions, and brand-new interviews with Mac luminaries (at the end of each chapter), this completely revised volume offers something for Mac users of all stripes and skill levels. Leaders of the Mac community address every aspect of Mac use here, packing in hundreds of tips, trivia, sidebars, and other goodies along the way.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Mac users have been relying on The Macintosh Bible for longer than they may care to admit. This new Ninth Edition has been thoroughly overhauled, with extensive new coverage of OS X 10.3 (Panther), iLife, and a gaggle of new hardware and third-party software.

Switching to Panther -- either from Windows or an older Mac? This edition’s handy new coverage will make it a breeze. Then, once you’ve arrived, have some fun.

The book’s old “multimedia” chapter has been revamped and expanded into a complete guide to the Macintosh digital lifestyle: music, pictures, movies, and more. Turn your iBook into a jukebox. Exhibit your nature photos with musical accompaniment by Norah Jones. (There’s even a brief intro to 3D and animation tools.)

There are oodles of tips. How to select hundreds of items in your currently active Finder window without struggling to drag your mouse across them all. What to try when your file won't print. When it makes sense to divvy your hard drive into multiple partitions. How to choose the right memory for your new Mac -- and where to find the specs on that used Mac you’re eyeing on eBay.

Digital video, wireless iPort networking, web design shareware, flat-panel LCDs, Mac games, cable modems, Mac lore...whatever the topic, you'll find simple explanations and pithy advice. As with this book's classic early editions, there are contributions from many of the world's leading Mac mavens. It’s the best of the Mac community between two covers. Bill Camarda
