There's a new cat in town, and Mac OS X Tiger is the next big thing from Apple. The latest version of Mac OS X, Tiger is faster than its predecessors, and packs a host of new features including Spotlight, Dashboard, a totally new Mail application, Automator for making complex tasks simple, and many more. The "Mac OS X Tiger Pocket Guide" introduces you to the fundamental concepts of using Mac OS X Tiger. The book starts out with a quick run down of Tiger's cool new features, including the new RSS screen saver and the built-in dictionary/thesaurus you can use from any application. The "Mac OS X Tiger Pocket Guide" shows you how to use the Finder, the Dock, Expos, Spotlight, Dashboard, including tips, tricks, and keyboard shortcuts along the way. You'll learn how to configure your Tiger system using the System Preferences application, and also how to keep your Mac secure with things like FileVault, the Password Assistant, and Tiger's enhanced Firewall capabilities. And because Mac OS X Tiger is Unix-based, you'll also learn how to issue basic Unix commands using the Terminal application.
