Big Book of Apple Hacks: Tips & Tools for Unlocking the Power of Your Apple Devices

Buy
Ostensibly, you buy a computer or gadget to get something done. The something might be as simple as listening to MP3s you’ve ripped from your CD collection or as challenging as creating a full-length feature film. Apple is happy to sell you products to meet your needs. The trouble is your needs aren’t exactly the needs of the next guy, and that’s where hacking comes in. With a little (or sometimes a lot) of effort, you can make your Apple gadgets and software perform in the manner you wish them to. Apple stuff that does things exactly the way you want makes the Apple experience that much better.

There are over 100 hacks in this book and a passel of quick tips and tricks. Some are simple enough—you’ve probably already pulled them off—while others are a bit more challenging. All, to the right person, can be fun and useful.

So what can you expect? There is a wide range of hacks here. If you’ve got an iPhone, you can learn how to take your hard drive with you when you go. Tired of the look of OS X? Discover ways to tweak interface elements. Want to watch your Apple TV on yesterday’s television set? You’ll learn how. Worried about your Mac’s security? You’re covered.

This book covers Mac OS X, the iLife Suite of programs, the iPod, the iPhone, and Apple TV. Any particular part of the Apple universe you carry in your pocket is in here.

Bigger in size, longer in length, broader in scope, and even more useful than our original Mac OS X Hacks, the new Big Book of Apple Hacks offers a grab bag of tips, tricks and hacks to get the most out of Mac OS X Leopard, as well as the new line of iPods, iPhone, and Apple TV.

With 125 entirely new hacks presented in step-by-step fashion, this practical book is for serious Apple computer and gadget users who really want to take control of these systems. Many of the hacks take you under the hood and show you how to tweak system preferences, alter or add keyboard shortcuts, mount drives and devices, and generally do things with your operating system and gadgets that Apple doesn't expect you to do. The Big Book of Apple Hacks gives you:

  • Hacks for both Mac OS X Leopard and Tiger, their related applications, and the hardware they run on or connect to
  • Expanded tutorials and lots of background material, including informative sidebars
  • "Quick Hacks" for tweaking system and gadget settings in minutes
  • Full-blown hacks for adjusting Mac OS X applications such as Mail, Safari, iCal, Front Row, or the iLife suite
  • Plenty of hacks and tips for the Mac mini, the MacBook laptops, and new Intel desktops
  • Tricks for running Windows on the Mac, under emulation in Parallels or as a standalone OS with Bootcamp
The Big Book of Apple Hacks is not only perfect for Mac fans and power users, but also for recent -- and aspiring -- "switchers" new to the Apple experience. Hacks are arranged by topic for quick and easy lookup, and each one stands on its own so you can jump around and tweak whatever system or gadget strikes your fancy. Pick up this book and take control of Mac OS X and your favorite Apple gadget today!
