WARNING: AS MANY AS 7% OF THE PEOPLE WHO... > So what exactly is a “Killer Tip?”

So what exactly is a “Killer Tip?”

“Double-click on a folder to open it.” Technically, that is a tip. It's a very lame tip. It's a boringly obvious tip, and it's definitely not a Killer Tip. If it's a “Killer Tip,” it makes you nod and smile when you read it, and you'll be nodding and smiling so much in this book, you're going to look like a bobbing dog in the rear window of a Buick Park Avenue. (I used a Buick Park Avenue as an example because it has a big enough rear window that you can climb up there yourself to test out my prediction. See, I care.) The goal here is to give you tips that are so cool that after reading just a few you have to pick up the phone, call your Mac buddies, and totally tune them up with your newfound Mac OS X power.

Tip

When you see a gray tinted box hanging out in the sidebar like this, you can't help but read it, right? That's because you're addicted to gray tinted boxes.


Now, I have to tell you, the tips in this book are designed for people who are already using Mac OS X, so there's not much beginner stuff in here. However, if you are a Mac beginner, I have a special bonus for you—a secret special downloadable chapter of beginner tips that I put together just for you. So technically the tips in this downloadable beginners' chapter are not “Killer Tips,” they're Mac OS X beginners' tips written in a Killer Tips style, but hey—they're free, I made them especially for you, and all you have to do is download the PDF chapter from www.scottkelbybooks.com/begtips.html. You'll also find downloadable chapters on iTunes and using the Classic environment.
