David Pogue (author) is the weekly tech columnist for The New York Times, an Emmy-winning correspondent for CBS News Sunday Morning, a weekly CNBC contributor, and the creator of the Missing Manual series. He’s the author or coauthor of 51 books, including 25 in this series, six in the “For Dummies” line (including Macs, Magic, Opera, and Classical Music), two novels, and The World According to Twitter. In his other life, David is a former Broadway show conductor, a piano player, and a magician. He lives in Connecticut with his three awesome children.

Links to his columns and weekly videos await at www.davidpogue.com. He welcomes feedback about his books by email at .

Julie Van Keuren (copy editor) is a freelance editor, writer, and desktop publisher who runs her “little media empire” from her home in Billings, Montana. In her spare time she enjoys swimming, biking, running, and (hey, why not?) triathlons. She and her husband, M.H., have two sons, Dexter and Michael. Email: .

Rich Koster (technical reviewer). The iPhone was Rich’s first cellphone as well as his first iPod, but it soon became his faithful electronic companion. As he got deeper into it, he began corresponding with David Pogue, sharing tips, tricks, and observations; eventually, David asked him to be the beta reader for this book’s previous editions—and hired him as the tech editor for this one. Rich is a husband, a father, and creator of the Disney Echo at DisneyEcho.emuck.com—which he runs from his iPhone every day!

Acknowledgments

The Missing Manual series is a joint venture between the dream team introduced on these pages and O’Reilly Media. I’m grateful to all of them, especially to designer Phil Simpson and prose queen Julie Van Keuren, who have become my Missing Manual core team.

A few other friends did massive favors for this edition of this book. My fellow Times columnist Jude Biersdorfer wrote the earlier editions’ chapters on iTunes, syncing, and accessories, and of course did a brilliant, witty job.

With boundless enthuisiasm, my summer intern Matt Gibstein became a master of Photoshop, InDesign, and the crazed Pogue production process in a matter of days. His work on the graphics, the index, and hunting down a lot of tweaky answers made the book’s on-time publication possible. And Apple’s Teresa Brewer, Greg Joswiak, Natalie Kerris, and Steve Sinclair donated valuable technical answers to my cause.

Thanks to David Rogelberg for believing in the idea, and above all, to my family. They make these books—and everything else—possible.

The Missing Manual Series

Missing Manual books are superbly written guides to computer products that don’t come with printed manuals (which is just about all of them). Each book features a handcrafted index; cross-references to specific page numbers (not just “See Chapter 14”); and RepKover, a detached-spine binding that lets the book lie perfectly flat without the assistance of weights or cinder blocks.
