Mac OS is a beautiful and reliable operating system, but it can still confuse brand new Mac owners-especially if they come from Windows. After all, Mac OS is not Windows, and that's a good thing. But that doesn't necessarily mean that it's easy for new users to penetrate this different operating system. Fortunately, with My New Mac, it won't be long before readers are relishing those differences. Rather than focus each chapter on a specific program or feature of Mac OS (as most beginner books do), Wallace Wang takes a project-oriented approach that mirrors the sorts of things people want to do with their Mac. For example, rather than offering a tedious, step-by- step walkthrough of Photo Booth or iChat, Wang focuses on using Photo Booth to organize photos and post them to a website, or using iChat to chat with friends. Key aspects of each program needed to perform a task are discussed and indexed for easy reference, but this is not a reference book: it's designed to teach new users how to get the most out of their Mac by having them use it to actually do things. This revised edition covers all new OS X Lion features, including multi-touch gestures, FaceTime video messaging, app management with Launchpad and Mission Control, the Mac App Store, full-screen apps, and more.
