Mac users can now master the new Messages app in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion with advice from author Glenn Fleishman in
the new ebook, “Take Control of Messages in Mountain Lion,” from TidBITS Publishing.
The new Messages app has all the chops for sending short text-based messages and cute emoticons. Messages can also carry voice conversations, share screens, handle group chats, and even host full-on video exchanges. However, because Messages supports two messaging protocols and six types of accounts, it’s easy for Mac users to get confused when addressing messages, or when determining which features are available in which services.
In this ebook, Fleishman helps Mac users match their needs to the correct account setup, send and receive messages, and handle special situations — whether with etiquette or with passwords — that might arise. The book costs $10 and is available at http://tid.bl.it/tco-messages-mountain-lion-pr .
