Whether you’re new to the Mac or just new to Snow Leopard, we wrote this book for you. We didn’t say new to computers. That’s what makes this book unique. Maybe you’re an infrequent upgrader or a programmer from another platform who bought a Mac to write so- ware for the iPhone. We talk to you, without talking down to you. We don’t explain to you what a mouse is, but we do tell how using a mouse on a Mac is different from using a mouse on Windows. We give detailed summaries of every part of Mac OS X, from the Finder to Terminal. We give you a tour of the Applications folder, with chapters dedicated to Snow Leopard applications and iLife, Apple’s digital lifestyle suite. We get you connected, with chapters on Safari, iChat, and MobileMe, as well as on the productivity trio of Mail, Address Book, and iCal. We don’t stop at the consumer stuff. We point out the Pro versions and link to the do- mentation. We provide generous screenshots and actual, usable sample code. We talk about the UNIX layer that lives beneath Aqua’s candy shell. We show you how to master your Mac with shell scripts, AppleScripts, and Automator. We show you how to install the Xcode developer tools. We take you on a tour of the Cocoa frameworks and get up close and personal with Objective-C, the native programming language of both Mac OS X and iPhone OS.
