Webcast: Take Control of iCloud
February 03, 2012
In this webcast, veteran Mac author Joe Kissell explains what iCloud can do for you, how to deal with configuration puzzles and compatibility issues, and how best to manage the transition from MobileMe.

"Joe's writing style was clear and easy for me to follow, and I suspect it would not be over the head of more novice users as well. This is a refreshing change from many technical books, which tend to be drier than an overcooked hamburger."
--Ed Truitt, Apple Barrel - October 2012

"Take Control of Mail on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch is 96 pages packed with information on how to make the most out of using Mail.app. The $10 investment is a small price to pay for what you’ll get in return."
--Elisa Pacelli, MyMac Magazine

"...a clarity-driven guide for your venture into a parallel programming universe on your Intel Macintosh. "
--Tony Reveaux, CineSource Magazine, July/Aug 09, Vol 2, No. 4

"Take Control of the Mac Command Line with Terminal is the answer. Joe Kissell leads you step by step from knowing absolutely nothing to having confident control of Mac OS X Terminal and the bash shell. If you have been fearful of the OS X command line, this is where you want to start. "
--Tony Lawrence, APLawrence.com

"If you want to use VMware's Fusion 2 to run Windows on your Mac, this $10 ebook will save you lots of trouble... He unearths VMware Fusion's less obvious features and explains not just how VMware Fusion works, but how users can best make use of it in the real world."
--Jay Nelson, Design Tools Monthly, Issue #197, January 2009

"If you want to run Windows on your Mac, this book has everything you need to know. "
--Jay Nelson, Design Tools Monthly, Issue #199, March 2009

"Currently, Take Control of MobileMe is the only option for MobileMe documentation outside of Apple’s own online manuals and forums; it provides a thorough, objective assessment, explaining the pros, cons, and capabilities of each component."
--Lauren Doughty, The Tech Static

" "
--Stephen M. Henning, MacPower
