Prepare to pounce! This book offers all the friendly, practical instruction you need to immediately take advantage of the powerfully enhanced applications that come pre-installed with Mac OS X Panther. Through tutorials, tips, and techniques you'll learn how to use each of the powerful apps--both individually and as part of an integrated, interactive suite. Robin and John also cover the features of the immensely popular .Mac account and its applications.

Whether you're a new or veteran user, you'll welcome this volume's easy approach to all that's new (and not so new) in Panther's application collection. You'll find an entire chapter on GarageBand, Apple's new consumer-level music-making software. You'll also learn everything about getting on the Internet and using email, including the greatest web browser, Safari; the way-cool iChat AV, which adds audio and video to instant messaging; an updated iTunes, which includes access to the revolutionary Apple iTunes Music Store; a powerfully updated iCal with its enhanced alarms and robust time zone support; haunting new visual effects in iMovie; updated features in the .Mac applications, including iSync, Backup, Virex, Mail, Homepage, iCards; and much more.
