New Take Control ebook helps readers switch from a Windows PC to the Mac

Ithaca, NY USA (March 14, 2008) — The success of the iPhone, the
iPod, and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, all combined with the frustrations
experienced by Windows Vista users, have caused many Windows users to think
seriously about switching to the Macintosh. There’s never been a better
time to switch to the Mac, and here to help is “Take Control of Switching
to the Mac,” a concise electronic book that can be downloaded instantly,
read on a PC or Mac, and kept handy for quick browsing and searching
whenever a question arises. Written by cross-platform expert and
best-selling author Scott Knaster, who has worked at both Apple and
Microsoft, the 100-page ebook guides readers through every step along the
way: buying a Mac, setting up a Mac, moving files to a Mac, translating
Windows terminology to Macintosh proficiency, figuring out what software to
use on the Mac, networking, printing, and more, including a glossary of
common Mac terms. The ebook may be purchased for $10 at
