For the MacNN e-books that are just a buck each for our most popular Pointers pieces won't be a buck, and won't be MacNN for much longer. For from the end of this month, MacNN.com is closing down. Update: sale is over!
When you think "critical turning points in computer gaming history," chances are you might not think about the Mac at all. Richard Moss, a freelance writer, ludologist (gaming researcher), and gaming enthusiast, is going to try to change that. He's writing a book called The Secret History of Mac Gaming, and attempting to crowdfund its production.
Whether you're a vegetarian, or you're just someone looking to add a few more vegetables to your diet, it can be difficult to find exciting food to eat if you're not used to cooking without meat. That's why we're here to show you a post-winter cookbook app; the gorgeous, healthy, and easy-to-love My New Roots.
Just to thoroughly and entirely ruin all the drama we've been building up to, just to wreck every scintilla of tension, let us tell you right at the start that we do now have a new book out. We were not kidding all week, when we said we didn't know if it were possible to produce a book alongside this series of articles about producing books. We were entirely serious, every time we angrily regretted our stupidity in telling you that we were even going to try. Yet for this last article about physically producing an e-book and then getting it through Apple and Amazon's approvals process, we wrote an e-book and we got it through Apple and Amazon's approvals process.
We'd talked about Alice in America a while back, but what if you're in the mood for the original Alice in Wonderland tale? Good news, because the same developers that brought you Alice in America also has the classic Alice in Wonderland animated in a gorgeous app-book called Alice for the iPad.
Prepare for a clash of continents and vowel sounds as North American travelling man Charles Martin meets stay-at-home UK type William Gallagher. It could get rough –– except for how the pair of them are full of how their new MacNN book is a best seller. They do shut up about that but it takes some effort.
An ebook from two of MacNN's writing team has stormed up the charts of online book stores across both sides of the Atlantic. William Gallagher and Charles Martin's MacNN Pointers: Get More from Your Apple Software, a tome based on the Pointers series of posts here on MacNN, has hit the top of the Computing & Internet section of the iBooks Top Paid Books chart just days after being published, with similar success for the book on Amazon's Kindle store charts.
Brand new MacNN Pointers –– Get More from Your Apple Software. The best of the MacNN Pointers tutorials is now out in iBooks and Kindle for $1. It's out because you asked for it: Pointers began as an experiment one year ago but it's now a hugely popular staple of MacNN with three new guides every week. Talking with you, we think we've figured out why it's popular: we all know that Apple software "just works" but no, it doesn't. There are times it stops working, and there are many more times when you could be doing something faster, easier and better but you don't simply because you have no reason to even know the facility is there.
The technology industry is like every other business, but telescoped down: what took decades in the car trade took hours for computers. Consumer electronics are also a lot like show business, in how products must be launched and images must be produced. When things are going wrong, CEOs have to have great scripts to read from. With a bit of a holiday slow-down coming up, let us recommend some very good reading -- the best books about Apple, and the best about the technology world.
This is a case of the Internet solving a problem that the Internet caused. Back in the day, if you wanted to go somewhere, you consulted a travel agent, and he or she presented you with a neat little agenda, a smart little itinerary, and a not very little bill. Now that we book our own planes, trains, cars and hotels, maybe we can see why they earned their money. Or maybe we can just see how useful an app and service like TripIt is.
