Windows 11 The Good, The Bad & The Ugly by Ojula Technology Innovations

In this book I give you my honest views on the good and dark sides of Windows 11. There are more features, issues, hacks and tricks hiding in Windows 11 than most people will ever know. I unveiled some of them in this book. I've been a Windows user for over 20 years, and after further exploring two early builds of Windows 11, at first I had to admit that it looks rather nice, and is better than Windows 10. But I soon discovered there's a lot more than meets the eye. So I strongly advise you read this book first to help you decide if you should install or upgrade your OS to Windows 11. These are some of what you'll learn in this book: > The new features and major changes since the Windows 11 insider preview was released. > Why Microsoft's system health-check application, and the hardware constraints they plan to include in Windows 11 are shameful, and how they can affect your system and you. > Why I suspect the rollout of Windows 11 will be relatively slow, and why it will take quite a long time before lots of people start using it. > Apps experiencing troubles with Windows 11 and Why Microsoft is unable to find a fix. > 8 Windows 11 troubles Microsoft is currently investigating. > The Microsoft's policy and how it will affect Windows 11 users when Windows 10 support ends on October 14th, 2025. > How to quickly and reliably check if your system can run Windows 11. > Two methods to install Windows 11 step by step (for Windows and Linux-based systems with backup and restore options for programs and files). > A work around to install Windows 11 on non-supported hardware. > How to dual boot your PC with Windows 11 and 10 step by step. > And so much more...

Take Control of Shortcuts

Take Control of Shortcuts by Rosemary Orchard

Improve your iPad and iPhone workflows with automation! Version 1.1, updated 09/30/2020 Automation is no longer just for advanced Mac and PC users! Apple's Shortcuts app lets anyone with an iPhone or iPad automate day-to-day tasks, from the simple to the complex. This book is a complete introduction to Shortcuts, which covers every aspect of building, installing, debugging, running, syncing, and sharing shortcuts. It also includes step-by-step recipes for creating numerous useful shortcuts yourself. Apple's Shortcuts app brings extensive automation capabilities to your iPhone or iPad, using a drag-and-drop, fill-in-the-blanks interface much like Automator on the Mac. It lets you perform sequences of tasks, including ones that span various apps, with just a tap or a voice command—or even automatically when certain conditions are met. Shortcuts can save you time and effort, help you accomplish previously complicated tasks, and let you customize your device to better meet your needs. And with iOS 14/iPadOS 14, Shortcuts has become even more powerful than before. But for all its utility, Shortcuts is not self-explanatory, so it can be challenging to figure out its quirks and create effective, time-saving automations. That's where Take Control of Shortcuts comes in. Written by automation expert Rosemary Orchard, this book opens the world of iOS/iPadOS automation to users at every level. With Rosemary's help, you'll learn how to: • Navigate the Shortcuts app: Understand the user interface and terminology, then install and run your first shortcut. • Run shortcuts: Discover many different ways to run a shortcut, from tapping an icon to using Home automations, Siri, and Apple Watch. • Build shortcuts: Start with simple, one-step shortcuts and work your way up to complex shortcuts with input, output, variables, conditionals, loops, and more. Debugging advice is also included. • Install and sync shortcuts: Download and install shortcuts others have written, sync your shortcuts across your devices, and share them with other people. • Then, to both illustrate the main principles you've learned and give you practical tools to get you started, Rosemary walks you step by step through the creation of 15 sample shortcuts, which you can also download and install using links in the book. Examples include: • Event templates • A daily overview • Converting and sharing images • Adding a song to a playlist • Logging expenses • Turning on lights automatically when you get home The book also discusses how Shortcuts can use REST APIs to talk to various web services (with detailed examples), and complementary apps that work in conjunction with Shortcuts. Whether you're completely new to automation or already have significant programming experience, you'll find plenty of useful information in this friendly, practical guide.

Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac, Fourth Edition - Joe Kissell Cover Art

Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac, Fourth Edition

Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac, Fourth Edition by Joe Kissell

Set up a rock-solid backup strategy so that you can restore quickly and completely, no matter what catastrophe arises.   Version 4.1, updated November 19, 2021 Joe Kissell provides the advice you need to create a Mac backup strategy that protects your data and enables quick recovery. He compares backup software, services, and media to help you make the best choices. You’ll learn to set up, test, and maintain backups, plus how to restore files after a calamity! Creating and maintaining a solid backup plan is essential to anyone who uses a Mac, in order to prevent the loss of important data if disaster strikes—whether through hardware or software failure, theft, human error, or other mishap. In Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac, Fourth Edition , tech expert Joe Kissell explains how to design a sensible backup strategy, choose and configure the best backup hardware and software for your needs, and understand how to make your backups as painless as possible. His advice is equally useful to those who have never had a backup system and those whose backup systems are in need of an update. The fourth edition, a major rewrite, fully delves into the new challenges presented by Big Sur and Monterey, M-series Macs, and the ever-changing landscape of Mac backup hardware, software, and cloud services. It features entirely rethought advice about bootable (and non-bootable) duplicates, backup media, and disk formats, as well as changes in Time Machine and the weird world of APFS snapshots. This book covers macOS 10.14 Mojave through macOS 12 Monterey. Using this book, you’ll learn how to:  • Design (or update) the ideal backup system: If you’re starting from scratch, you’ll find all the information necessary to assemble a reliable and easy-to-use backup system. If you’re updating an existing system, you’ll learn about what’s new in hardware, software, and online services that might affect the way you back up your Mac in the future. • Choose backup software: Apple’s Time Machine is both free and easy to use, but it’s not the best choice for everyone, and even if you do use Time Machine, you’ll certainly want to supplement it with other tools. You’ll learn about key features to look for in a backup app and find tips on using several popular tools. You’ll also discover the pros and cons of cloud backup services, and get help choosing the right one. (An online appendix covers dozens of apps and services.) • Shop for hardware: Depending on your needs and goals, you may need one or more external SSDs or hard drives, but the range of options (sizes, interfaces, speeds, and more) can be bewildering. Joe helps you find the best backup hardware, whether it’s individual SSDs or hard drives, RAIDs, NAS devices, or other options. • Make and maintain backups: Once you’ve selected hardware and software, you’ll need to know how to make your first backup, set up your backups to run unattended, and test them regularly to make sure they’re working as they should. This includes both versioned backups (which contain old file versions and deleted files) and—for some users—bootable or non-bootable (data-only) clones. And, you’ll learn about strategies for keeping extra backups offsite. • Operate Time Machine: If you choose Time Machine for versioned backups, you’ll learn how to back up and restore individual files, app-specific data (such as contacts), and even an entire disk. You’ll also discover why and how to encrypt Time Machine backups, how APFS snapshots work (inside and outside Time Machine), and what to do if Time Machine misbehaves. • Deal with unusual backup needs: If you deal with exceptionally large files (such as audio and video files), spend a lot of time on the road away from your usual backup hardware, run Windows on your Mac, or rely on cloud services to store essential data, you’ll want to take extra (or different) steps to make sure everything is safely backed up. • Manage your media: What happens when a backup drive fills up, or becomes so old that you worry about its future reliability? What if you want to archive older files for posterity, but not necessarily maintain them as part of your daily backups? Joe explains how to deal with media management tasks such as these. • Recover lost data: Backing up data can be easy, but restoring it is often more challenging. When you discover that data is missing—whether due to a disk error, theft, or a simple mistake—you need to know the exact steps needed to recover it and get back to work as soon as possible.

12 Things Every iPhone & iPad User Should Know - Macworld Editors Cover Art

12 Things Every iPhone & iPad User Should Know

12 Things Every iPhone & iPad User Should Know by Macworld Editors

While using an iOS device isn’t hard—and that's partially why we love them—even savvy users like Macworld readers have holes in their iPhone and iPad knowledge. Maybe you know everything there is to know about Safari caching, but you're in the dark when it comes to iPhone photography. Or perhaps you're a Mail maestro, but you'd like to be faster at composing emails on a digital keyboard. Whether you've forgotten an iOS trick or you want to learn some new ones, our editors have you covered. We polled our community—and our newsroom—to create a list of 12 essential iOS features we think every iOS user should know about. Topics include syncing your accounts and data, managing your apps, printing, and working with Bluetooth. You can learn how to troubleshoot meddlesome battery issues and brush up on your security and backup options; we'll also explain the basics of multitasking and editing text, and walk you through shooting a quality photo and working with PDFs. These iOS essentials first appeared as the cover story for our April 2012 issue; not only does the book include all the information from that print feature, we've redesigned the layout, included new galleries and videos, and added a little bit extra for our ebook viewers.

55+ iPhone 5 Quick-Start Tips and Tricks to Get You Started With Your Phone

55+ iPhone 5 Quick-Start Tips and Tricks to Get You Started With Your Phone Or iPhone 4 / 4S With iOS 6 by Scott La Counte

My parents are official iPhone users. I began writing this book when I realized that they could make phone calls and take pictures, but didn’t have the faintest idea how to make the text size bigger on their text messages or a number of other things that I thought were common sense after using the phone for a day. I decided to make a list for them and this book is a result of that. If you have been using Apple products for several years, then this book will probably have a few tricks that you didn’t know—especially if you are upgrading to the new OS (iOS 6). The book, however, is geared towards those getting started. This book is meant to be a quick start reference. It’s not a tutorial on how to use your phone. If you are looking for something that is more hands on and teaches you how to use the phone from square one, then you should try the beginners’ handbook which I have also written: The iPhone 5 Quick Starter Guide. Additionally, if you’d like to just see what major things have been added to iOS 6 then jump to the last section which is just for your reference and does not count towards the 50+ tips in this short guide.

A Beginners Guide to Using Mac OS X (10.10) Yosemite A Guide to Unplugging You Windows PC and Becoming a Mac User by Katie Morris & GadChick

Apple Maps.  Robert Downey Jr.  Detroit.  These are a few examples of great things that just needed some hard work and a fresh look to really explode.  After OS X Mavericks was met with indifference, many worried that future OS X updates would continue to be a steady stream of minor upgrades and tweaks.  Continuing the new naming convention of Californian locations, the new iteration will be dubbed ‘Yosemite’ after California’s beloved national park, with no relation to a certain Looney Tunes character.  With OS X Yosemite, Apple is showing the world that OS X is not doomed to incremental upgrades, and diligently went through everything “feature by feature, pixel by pixel” to create a totally new and improved makeover for an old friend.  If you’ve used any OS X version before, there’s no way you’ll feel totally lost as you forage through Yosemite but your computer will definitely look and feel like a brand new system.   There are many new changes both aesthetic and mechanical, and this guide will take you through it all whether you're an OS X spring chicken or a grizzled Mac veteran.  If this is your first Apple computer (congrats on making the jump by the way!), we will also detail how to switch everything over from your old PC, and show you the differences between Windows and Mac.  If you are ready to learn the ins and outs of OS X Yosemite, grab a fresh cup of coffee (decaf if it’s late) and let’s get to work.

Revolution in The Valley [Paperback] - Andy Hertzfeld Cover Art

Revolution in The Valley [Paperback]

Revolution in The Valley [Paperback] The Insanely Great Story of How the Mac Was Made by Andy Hertzfeld

There was a time, not too long ago, when the typewriter and notebook ruled, and the computer as an everyday tool was simply a vision. Revolution in the Valley traces this vision back to its earliest roots: the hallways and backrooms of Apple, where the groundbreaking Macintosh computer was born. The book traces the development of the Macintosh, from its inception as an underground skunkworks project in 1979 to its triumphant introduction in 1984 and beyond. The stories in Revolution in the Valley come on extremely good authority. That's because author Andy Hertzfeld was a core member of the team that built the Macintosh system software, and a key creator of the Mac's radically new user interface software. One of the chosen few who worked with the mercurial Steve Jobs, you might call him the ultimate insider. When Revolution in the Valley begins, Hertzfeld is working on Apple's first attempt at a low-cost, consumer-oriented computer: the Apple II. He sees that Steve Jobs is luring some of the company's most brilliant innovators to work on a tiny research effort the Macintosh. Hertzfeld manages to make his way onto the Macintosh research team, and the rest is history. Through lavish illustrations, period photos, and Hertzfeld's vivid first-hand accounts, Revolution in the Valley reveals what it was like to be there at the birth of the personal computer revolution. The story comes to life through the book's portrait of the talented and often eccentric characters who made up the Macintosh team. Now, over 20 years later, millions of people are benefiting from the technical achievements of this determined and brilliant group of people.
