Popular Electronic Book, “Take Control of Upgrading to Panther” Updated to
Version 1.1

Ithaca, NY (November 10, 2003) — “Take Control of Upgrading to Panther,”
an electronic book that thoroughly guides Macintosh users through the Mac
OS X Panther installation process, was updated to version 1.1 on Friday,
November 7, just two weeks after its 1.0 release. The new version includes
updated information about serious problems with FireWire hard drives, as
well as new details about bad third-party RAM, firewalls, printing,
AppleTalk, X11, third-party utilities, and partitioning hard drives.

The first version of “Take Control of Upgrading to Panther” enjoyed
unprecedented popularity, with nearly 3300 copies sold in under two weeks
and numerous accolades. One reader, Norman Booker, wrote: “This book is
clearly one of the best bits of logical, reader-friendly, and practical
writing I’ve come across – even in the Mac world. Its design and

Take Control publisher Adam Engst commented, “The fact that we can release
a major update that’s more than 25 percent larger than the original version
within two weeks – and make it available for free to everyone who bought
the first version – shows the power of the Take Control publishing model.
Readers want the kind of timely, comprehensive information that can be made
available only through a streamlined electronic publishing approach.”
