[prMac.com] Berkeley, California - Following on from her well-received title Taking Your iPhone to the Max, Mac Guru Erica Sadun switches her attention to the iPod touch with her new book, Taking Your iPod touch to the Max, and shows readers exactly how to use and enjoy Apple's latest iPod.
The iPod touch has taken Apple's all-conquering iPod to another level, by adding a wealth of new and potentially overwhelming features. Taking Your iPod touch to the Max provides a thorough and enjoyable introduction to the iPod touch, and also shows how to get the most from it, covering all the best, and undocumented, tricks.
Readers will learn how to set up their iPod touch and how to interact with its screen, before being introduced to each bundled application, including those added in the January Software Upgrade. They'll discover how to connect to the Internet, send and receive e-mail, listen to music, watch videos, and synchronize calendars, all through their iPod touch. Taking Your iPod touch to the Max then goes further, providing hints, tips, and plain commonsense suggestions that will ensure readers are making the most of the iPod's hidden potential.
While catering to both Mac and PC iPod touch users, Taking Your iPod touch to the Max is the latest in a growing number of Mac-related titles published by Apress. Other titles include Taking Your iPhone to the Max, Mac OS X Leopard Beyond the Manual, Foundations of Mac OS X Leopard Security, Creating Mac Widgets with Dashcode, and AppleScript: The Comprehensive Guide to Scripting and Automation on Mac OS X.
The author, Erica Sadun holds a PhD in computer science from the Georgia Institute of Technology. She has written, cowritten, and contributed to almost two dozen books about technology, particularly in the areas of programming, digital video, and digital photography.
An unrepentant geek, Sadun has never met a gadget she didn't need. Her checkered past includes run-ins with NeXT, Newton, and a vast myriad of both successful and unsuccessful technologies. When not writing, she and her geek husband parent three adorable geeks-in-training, who regard their parents with restrained bemusement. Her previous titles include Eight Ways to Get the Most from Your Zune, the O'Reilly Short Cut, and Modding Mac OS X, also with O'Reilly. She also wrote Taking Your iPhone to the Max.
