But recently you’ve reached the point of asking yourself “Is there a better way?” The answer is “Yes.” And relax, you just got lucky. This book is for you.

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.

Getting Started With MacBook Air (2020 Model) - Scott La Counte Cover Art

Getting Started With MacBook Air (2020 Model)

Getting Started With MacBook Air (2020 Model) A Guide For New MacOS Users by Scott La Counte

MacBook Air was once the lightweight computer that sent shock-waves through the technology industry! A computer so thin that it could actually fit in an envelope! How was that even possible. Over the years, MacBook Air has taken a backseat to the more powerful MacBook Pro. Yes, the Air was remarkably thin, but it just couldn’t keep up with what many users wanted to do. It was great for casual computing (like web browsing and email), but not for running large, more memory intensive, programs. In 2020, this changed when Apple revealed the latest version of MacBook Air. It features all the things you’d expect from the MacBook Pro, but at a cheaper price. Things like: Retina display, a remarkably fast Core i7 processor, Magic Keyboard that helps you deliver quieter typing, Touch ID, Stereo speakers with better sound, and USB-C inputs. If you are new to Mac, this book will help you out. It will cover: •    What's the difference between all the different Macs and Mac-Books •    How do you do all those Windows "things" on a Mac •    Using the Magic Mouse and Force Touch •    Using Siri •    How to find things / how to organize things to make them easy to find •    Using Sidecar •    Using Time Machine •    Parental Controls •    Using Notes •    Using iWorks •    Downloading / Updating apps on the App Store •    Organizing photos •    Making phone calls and sending messages •    Multitasking •    And much, much more!

And considering that the "one man" is Neal Stephenson, "the hacker Hemingway" (Newsweek) -- acclaimed novelist, pragmatist, seer, nerd-friendly philosopher, and nationally bestselling author of groundbreaking literary works (Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, etc., etc.) -- the word is well worth hearing. Mostly well-reasoned examination and partial rant, Stephenson's In the Beginning... was the Command Line is a thoughtful, irreverent, hilarious treatise on the cyber-culture past and present; on operating system tyrannies and downloaded popular revolutions; on the Internet, Disney World, Big Bangs, not to mention the meaning of life itself.

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.
