David Pogue's iPhone: The Missing Manual--New from O'Reilly:
The Ultimate iPhone Resource Is Here! Everything You Want to Know

Sebastopol, CA--"The book is here," says an enthusiastic David Pogue about his latest publication, iPhone: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly, $19.99)--the very first book about Apple's new cellphone to hit the streets. Pogue's witty, authoritative, full-color manual truly unlocks the iPhone's potential.

Between the covers of iPhone: The Missing Manual readers will find an entertaining, generously illustrated guide detailing how to use iPhone, along with tips, shortcuts, and workarounds. Full of humor, tricks, and surprises, Pogue shows readers how to extend iPhone's usefulness by exploiting its links to the Web as well as its connection to Macs or PCs; how to save money using Internet-based messages instead of phone calls; and how to fill the iPhone with TV shows and DVDs for free.

Coverage includes:

  • The phone and organizer. Sophisticated features like conference calling, visual voicemail, and text messaging are a finger tap away. This book offers detailed instructions for syncing the iPhone with the address book and calendar on a Mac or PC. It even covers syncing topics even Apple never dreamed of, like syncing a single iPhone with multiple computers, or using the iPhone as a data bucket to merge the address books from several different PCs.
  • The iPod. With a finger swipe or a pinch on the 3.5-inch, multitouch screen, you can bring your music, photos, and videos to life. These pages cover the iPhone's entertainment features and how they interact with the digital files on your Mac or PC.
  • The Internet. The iPhone can get online in two ways: on Wi-Fi hot spots or on AT&T's cellular network. Learn how to manage multiple accounts, subscribe to RSS feeds, and keep your iPhone secure. The book tackles such non-obvious problems as solving the "two-mailbox problem" and remedying the iPhone's lack of a spam filter.
  • The hardware and software. The iPhone may be the world's coolest computer, but it's still a computer, with all its complexities.

For busy professionals, working parents, and anyone else who owns an iPhone or plans to get one soon and hopes to take advantage of everything the iPhone's offers, David Pogue's latest Missing Manual makes it possible.

David Pogue is the weekly tech columnist for the New York Times. He's an Emmy-winning CBS News reporter, tech correspondent for NPR's "Morning Edition," and creator of the Missing Manual series.
