Page preface vii
Menu Symbols | Figure 1

The text refers to the “Paste and Match Style” shortcut in Figure 1 but Figure 1 does not show this. Either Figure 1 should be changed to show the Edit menu or the text changed to match one of the items in the File menu shown in Figure 1.

Note from the Author or Editor:
WE need to change the text to: "If you click the File menu while running TextEdit, you'll see a long sequence of symbols for the "Show Properties" shortcut as shown in Figure P-1" From left to right the figures are Option, Command and P. This means you'll need to hold the Option, Command and P keys. In this book you'll see this written as "Shift-⌘-P"

second and third paragraphs

In the FireWire 800 section of Data Migration, the paragraph starts with the correct abbreviation for Mbps. The final sentence has swapped to the incorrect 400MBps, the capitalisation of the B implies Bytes, not bits, which is a lower case b. In the following paragraph, WiFi, the same error is repeated.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The submission is correct it should be Mbps not MBps
