Call for Hacks: Mac Tips for the Rest of Us

Call for Hacks: Mac Tips for the Rest of Us

Mac OS X Leopard

Last month, I issued a Call for Hacks for our new Windows Hacks book in the works, but don’t you Mac users and hackers think we’re leaving you out. We’re working on a Big Book of Apple Hacks too, and author Chris Seibold could use your help.

Notice I said “Apple Hacks,” not “Mac OS X Hacks.” Bigger in size, broader in scope, and even more useful than traditional Hacks books (such as the original Mac OS X Hacks, the third book we published in the series, just over four years ago), we’re looking to give Mac power users everything they need to get the most out of their operating system, its related applications, and the hardware it runs on or connects to. This means that everything Apple-related is fair game, from applications (such as Mail, Safari, iCal, Front Row, or the iLife suite) to hardware (such as Apple TV, Mac mini, iPod, the MacBooks, or Intel desktops). And yes, of course, you should expect to see a good deal of Leopard hacks, as well as some stuff for Tiger users who aren’t ready to upgrade.

So, click the Suggest a Hack link in the sidebar, or drop Chris a line to send us your best tips and tricks. If your hack is accepted, you’ll get geek-cred bragging rights by becoming part of the O’Reilly Hacks community of contributors.
