With Windows 8, Microsoft completely reimagined the graphical user interface for its operating system, which now runs on both desktop PCs and tablets, but the overhaul was not without hitches and its dueling UIs (one designed for touch, the other for keyboards and mice) created significant confusion for users. Windows 10 (a free update to users of Windows 8 or Windows 7) fixes a number of the problems introduced by the revolution in Windows 8 and offers plenty of new features, such as the new Spartan web browser, Cortana voice-activated “personal assistant,” new universal apps (that run on tablet, phone, and computer), and more. But to really get the most out of the new operating system, you’re going to need a guide. Thankfully, Windows 10: The Missing Manual will be there to help. Like its predecessors, this book from the founder of Yahoo Tech, previous New York Times columnist, bestselling author, and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue illuminates its subject with technical insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners, veteran standalone PC users, new tablet owners, and those who know their way around a network.

Dafur, dass Apple angekundigt hat, mit neuen Features mal zu pausieren, waren die Entwickler doch wieder ganz schon fleiig - es gibt kaum eine Funktion in Mac OS X 10.6, dem "Snow Leopard," die sie nicht angefasst haben. Schneller, glatter, besser ist das neue System... aber immer noch ohne beschreibendes Handbuch. Zum Gluck hat sich Dompteur David Pogue wieder daran gemacht, die Raubkatze auf Herz und Nieren zu prufen und zu zahmen. Mit Witz und Humor, aber auch der gebuhrenden kritischen Distanz schildert er, was wie geht - und was nicht. Die wichtigsten Neuerungen: Eine 64-Bit-Generaluberholung. Geschwindigkeit. Ein neu geschriebener Finder. Kompatibilitat mit Microsoft Exchange. Ein nagelneuer QuickTime-Player. Wenn Apple sich darum kummert, dann auch dieses Buch. Snow Leopard-Flecken: Auch die Hunderte von kleineren Verbesserungen in den 50 Programmen, die beim Mac dabei sind, werden hier enthullt. In Safari, Mail, iChat, der Vorschau, Time Machine... Tastenkurzel und Geheimgange: Dieses Mac-Buch ist bestimmt das trickreichste und uberraschendste, das je geschrieben wurde. Auf jeder Seite erwarten Sie undokumentierte Abkurzungen und unbekannte Kniffe. Der Turbolader: Sicherheit, Netzwerkthemen, Zusammenarbeit mit Windows-Rechnern in heterogenen Umgebungen, sogar der Unix-Unterbau von Mac OS X - dieses geistreiche Handbuch leuchtet alles bis in den letzten Winkel aus.

Digitalkameras helfen uns dabei, Geld zu sparen, sie erlauben es uns, Fotos direkt nach der Aufnahme anzusehen und sie stolz herumzuzeigen. Mit dem Siegeszug der Digitalkamera gibt es aber auch doppelt so viel zu lernen wie früher: wie man qualitativ gute Fotos macht und wie man sie am Computer verwaltet und bearbeitet. Bestseller-Autor David Pogue beschäftigt sich deshalb in diesem Buch mit den fotografischen Grundlagen und der digitalen Verarbeitung von Fotos am Rechner. Die Kamera: Kamerahersteller bringen alle sechs Monate neue Modelle heraus. Das macht den Kauf einer Kamera nicht gerade zu einem Kinderspiel. David Pogue ist Kamerakritiker der New York Times und bringt auf den Punkt, auf welche Kamerafunktionen Sie wirklich achten müssen. Die Aufnahme: Moderne Kameras haben unzählige Features im Gepäck. Wozu sind z.B. ISO, Belichtungskorrektur oder Weißabgleich gut? Wie schießt man professionelle Fotos, die sich deutlich vom klassischen Schnappschuss abheben? Dieses Buch bringt Licht ins Dunkel und behandelt dabei sowohl Kompaktkameras als auch Spiegelreflexkameras. Das Labor: Picasa (Windows) und iPhoto (Mac) sind hervorragende, kostenlose Programme für die Organisation, die Nachbearbeitung und die Verbreitung von Digitalfotos. Umfangreiche Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen bringen Ihnen die Arbeit mit beiden Tools näher. Das Publikum: Vergessen Sie die Zeiten, in denen Ihre Fotos auf dem Dachboden Staub ansetzten. Zeigen Sie Ihre Digitalbilder in Webgalerien und Diashows, verschicken Sie sie per E-Mail, lassen Sie Kaffeetassen oder Briefmarken mit Ihren Motiven anfertigen oder nutzen Sie einen Online-Dienst, um Abzüge zu erstellen.
