Chapter 21. The Internet

Jonathan A. Oski (JO) is the chapter editor and coauthor.

Timothy Aston (TA), Andrea Dudrow (AD), Tara Marchand (TM), and Phil Strack (PS) are the chapter coauthors.

Steven Bobker (SB), Joseph O. Holmes (JH), and David J. Swift (DJS) edited earlier editions of The Macintosh Bible, from which portions of this chapter are taken.

The Internet has become so interwoven with personal computing that the boundary between your desktop and the Net is a blur. Apple's initiatives to integrate the Macintosh user experience with the Internet—such as through its unique iTools—have proved to be visionary and are still unequaled on any other mass-market desktop platform. Despite all the changes that the Internet has already gone through, the turmoil that started in late 2000 has led many Internet industry observers to say that the Internet is still in its infancy and we are likely to see continual rapid evolution of the medium, its services, and how it integrates with our computing experience.
