Macintosh users have been able to store “managed information” –
calendars, contacts, podcasts, and more on their Macs for years.
Today’s challenge is to sync that information to other devices and
locations so that its owner can access the data anytime, anywhere.

The latest addition to the Take Control series, Michael E. Cohen’s
“Take Control of Syncing Data in Snow Leopard,” explains how to sync
data to and from a Mac, with advice for readers who have never tried
syncing before and for those who need to solve syncing problems or
work in complex environments. The 162-page ebook is available from for US$10.

Cohen has worked as a teacher, programmer, web designer, multimedia
producer, and certified usability analyst. He’s the author or
co-author of several other books, including “iLife ’09: Apple
Training Series,” “iMovie ’09 & iDVD ’09 For Dummies,” and “AirPort
and Mac Wireless Networks for Dummies.”
