The Little iBook Book

by John Tollett, Robin Williams

Robin Williams and John Tollett are probably two of the best-liked authors in the Macintosh community. Robin has always used her books to welcome newcomers to the Mac community, and here she teams up with John Tollett to help all iBook owners get ahead quickly and easily. The Little iBook Book focuses on Apple's swoopy new notebook computer, its Mac OS 8.6, its applications software, and the tricks of the mobile-computing trade. Here, you'll get advice well-suited for those getting into personal computing by way of an iBook.

The most interesting portion of this book deals with connecting to the Internet under Mac OS while traveling (the section has relevance to users of non-iBook Mac portables too). The authors explain how to safely hook your computer to phone ports in hotels and public facilities (though they don't get into slicing open phone cables and manipulating individual wires--a need that arises in certain really gnarly telecom situations). They also show how to adjust the iBook's dialer software for mobile connectivity (mostly with MindSpring in the United States) and explain how to bill your Internet-access calls to your calling card. They also give a fine overview of the accessories available for spiffing up your streamlined companion.
--David Wall
