Publisher: O'Reilly Media, Inc.

About this book
It's little wonder that longtime Windows users are migrating in droves to the new Mac. They're fed up with the virus-prone Windows way of life, and they're lured by Apple's well-deserved reputation for producing great all-around computers that are reliable, user-friendly, well designed, and now--with the $500 Mac mini--extremely affordable, too. Whether you're drawn to the Mac's stability, its stunning digital media suite, or the fact that a whole computer can look and feel as slick as your iPod, you can quickly and easily become a Mac convert. But consider yourself warned: a Mac isn't just a Windows machine in a prettier box; it's a whole different animal and a whole new computing experience. If you're contemplating--or have already made--the switch from a Windows PC to a Mac, you need Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition. This incomparable guide delivers what Apple doesn't: everything you need to know to successfully and painlessly move to a Mac. The latest reprint of this book has been updated to reflect the new generation of Mac models that run on Intel chips. There's even a new appendix that guides you through the installation of Windows XP on your Macintosh (using adapter software like Boot Camp or Parallels), so that you have the best of all worlds: a single, beautiful machine that can run 100 percent of the world's desktop software. Missing Manual series creator and bestselling author David Pogue teams up with 17-year-old whiz kid and founder of GoldfishSoft ( Adam Goldstein to cover every aspect of switching to a Mac--things like transferring email, files, and addresses from a PC to a Mac; getting acquainted with the Mac's interface; adapting to Mac versions of familiar programs (including Microsoft Office); setting up a network to share files with PCs and Macs; and using the printers, scanners, and other peripherals you already own. Covering the latest in Mac OS X v.10.4 "Tiger," Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition explains the hundreds of innovative new features to the Mac OS and how you can understand and make the very most of each. Whether you're a novice or a power user, Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition, teaches you how to smoothly and seamlessly replace (or supplement) your Windows machine--in a refreshingly funny and down-to-earth style--with a mighty Mac.

    Resource hog but otherwise great game

    Disclosure: I'm a huge fan of all the Heroes of Might & Magic (HoMM) games going back to HoMM1, AND, I'm a huge fan of Macs, so much so that I don't use a Windows machine at home. For me, I *had* to buy this game simply to "vote with my dollars" and encourage future Mac HoMM development. But, I will try to put aside my biases and rate the game on its own merits.If you are unfamiliar with HoMM games, stop reading this review and *run* to buy HoMM2 and HoMM3 immediately for the Windows platform. (Why not get them for Mac? More on this later.) I won't get too involved in describing the games, as there are plenty of sites with great descriptions. HoMM games are turn-based strategy in a fantasy setting. The player manages heroes, armies, castles, resources, artifacts, spells, and quests, and competes with other human or AI players to conquer the map. As heroes gain experience, their primary stats improve, and they can learn specialty skills that help them in unique... 4/5 Rorke Haining (Seattle) - See all my reviews, August 28, 2007

    Lots of Fun, Just not Perfectly Tuned

    Heroes of Might and Magic V (HOMM5) is an amazing game. Its everything you would expect from a HOMM game and more, although the Mac version is somewhat lacking. Of primary concern is the fact that the game doesn't come with a Map Editor since the PC version of the game didn't have one either while the game was being ported to the Mac. It is still possible to use maps made by PC users that are posted online, but it would still be nice to be able to create/edit your own.Another large problem with the game is that it likes to crash. A lot. It doesn't matter what your computers specs are, the game is going to crash after prolonged periods of play. In my case it usually happens every two hours or so. Of course all you have to do is start up the game again and continue from the last autosave so you never really lose that much, but it is still definitely a hassle that makes the game somewhat less enjoyable.Ignoring the downsides, the game has an excellent... 4/5 J.

    Railroad Tycoon 3 (Mac)

    Video Games (MacSoft)

    Rating (15 reviews):

    A good update, but hardly a new game

    After anxiously waiting for a Mac release of Railroad Tycoon 3, I find that it's a much-needed upgrade of Railroad Tycoon 2. However, that's really all it is -- I'd be tempted to call it Railroad Tycoon 2.5 rather than 3. There are probably enough changes to track building and industries to warrant a new version number, but other than that and a few interface changes, RT3 is essentially the same game as RT2.The most obvious difference is in the graphics. The new 3-D engine is fantastic. You can actually watch the side rods of most of the steam engines go round and round. Tracks are a bit high off the ground, which is a little distracting at first, but overall the graphics are a huge improvement.Track laying is substantially improved from the previous version of the game, as well. Most significant is the return of tunnels, one of the most maligned omissions in RT2. You can also build a bridge over another railroad or duck under an existing bridge, a feature fans... 4/5 Matt Conrad "scrmcurator" (Winnsboro, SC) - See all my reviews, October 1, 2004

    buggy, buggy, buggy...

    I give this title three stars because I'm talking about the MacSoft version of it; the game as it was originally written for Windows deserves a better rating than that. This game has more reasons for a patch to be released than any other I've seen but MacSoft won't issue one. I've been on the phone with them and as near as I can tell, they don't see any problem with the program. That said, everyone I've talked to has experienced the same problems as I.For instance, you're playing along on a good sized map and you've been electrifying your tracks as you build them. You take over a company and go and electrify those tracks. Now you look down through your train roster and notice several trains with the "no electricity" icon next to them. How did this happen? All my tracks are electrified from sea-to-shining-sea, so why does the program lose this information? You don't even need to merge with another company for this to happen. While this may not seem like a big deal, when... 4/5 P. M. Adams (Florida) - See all my reviews, March 13, 2006
