Prepare for OS X Yosemite now with Take Control
Apple plans to release OS X 10.10 Yosemite “this fall” with Continuity features that integrate Macs and iOS 8, a redesigned Spotlight search tool, iCloud Drive cloud storage, an expanded Notification Center, and improvements in Apple Mail, among much else.
To smooth your transition to Yosemite, we have an early-bird version of Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite” for sale now, at a steeper discount than the normal MUG discount. It’s only $10, a 33% savings from the $15 list price.
“Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite” is the 8th installment in his classic series, which has helped tens of thousands of Mac users upgrade with confidence since 2003. With “Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite,” you’ll stay in control as Joe explains how to ensure that your hardware and software are ready for Yosemite, prevent problems by making a bootable duplicate of your main drive, eliminate digital clutter, prepare your Mac, and decide on the best installation method for your particular situation, no matter what version of Mac OS X you’re upgrading from, all the way back to 10.4 Tiger.
Because you may want to start preparing now, we’ve published the 73-page “Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite” before Yosemite is available. Once Apple releases Yosemite — and our non-disclosure agreement is lifted — we will publish a version 1.1 update with full installation steps, post-installation advice, troubleshooting help, and all the good stuff we can’t talk about yet. Look for “Meet Me Back Here on Upgrade Day” in the ebook to learn how to get the free 1.1 update, or just watch for our email notification with direct download links.
Thank you for your support of Take Control! It’s going to be a crazy few months while we keep working with the still-incomplete beta of Yosemite, but we’ll publish this book as soon as we can once Apple pushes Yosemite out to users.
cheers… -Adam & Tonya Engst, Take Control publishers
