MOVE ALL YOUR STUFF TO ANOTHER MAC—QUICK!

In the past, if you bought a new Mac, moving all your files, music, photos, and well…everything from your old Mac to your new Mac was quite a production, and I saw it reduce many an NFL lineman to tears. Well, in Tiger, that's all a thing of the past. Now, when it's time to make the “big move,” just connect the two Macs with a FireWire cable, then go to your new Mac and look inside the Applications folder, then go to the Utilities folder, where you'll find an application called Migration Assistant. Double-click on it and since it's an assistant, it will lead you through a series of screens with questions about what you want to do (don't worry, they're pretty simple questions; however, some of the most critical questions are entirely in French. Kidding). That's it—answer the questions and it'll make the move (including copying your settings for things like email, bookmarks, and more).
