New 'Missing Manual' looks at switching to the Mac
O'Reilly has released "Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Lion Edition" by David Pogue. The 712-page book costs US$29.99 and covers topics such as:
° Transferring your stuff. Moving files from a PC to a Mac by cable, network, or disk is the easy part. But how do you extract your email, address book, calendar, Web bookmarks, buddy list, desktop pictures, and MP3 files? Now you'll know.
° Recreating your software suite. The book identifies the Mac equivalents of your favorite Windows programs.
° Learning Lion. Apple's latest operating system is faster and more iPaddish -- but you still have to learn about things like iCloud, gestures, Mission Control, Launchpad, AirDrop, autosave, the Mac App Store and more.
