Written by long-time Mac experts, new ebook “Take Control: The Mac OS
X Lexicon” brings over 500 terms to life with wit, empathy, and
useful tips.

Ithaca, NY USA (July 24, 2007) — Anyone who has ever felt uncertain
about technical jargon can now get help with the latest Take Control
ebook, “Take Control: The Mac OS X Lexicon.” The ebook takes readers
on a mad romp through over 500 Macintosh- and Internet-related terms.
Loaded with useful tips, humor, and empathy, the ebook takes on
topics like the difference between composite and component cables,
how to figure out which optical drive you need for a DVD+RW-DL disc,
and what’s special about the numbers 404 and 501. The 191-page ebook
is now available for $15 at

Written by veteran Macintosh authors Andy Baird and Sharon Zardetto,
the ebook extends the familiar Take Control design with handy
alphabetic navigation tabs on every page, oodles of custom graphics,
scores of hand-picked links to external Web sites, and over 2,000
internal links.

Take Control publisher Adam Engst said, “Wikipedia is great but
suffers a complete lack of personality. Sharon and Andy have gone in
the other direction, creating a dictionary that’s both practical and
fun to read (the final entry is ‘Zune: Microsoft’s iPod-killer;
apparently a very subtle assassin.’)”
