Take Control of Ventura

Meet the latest version of macOS Version 1.1, updated October 24, 2022 macOS 13 Ventura brings important new usability, security, and convenience features to your Mac. Learn how to upgrade your Mac from an earlier version of macOS, find your way around the new system, and make use of the interesting new capabilities such as Stage Manager, Passkeys, and even a way to use your iPhone as a webcam. macOS 13 Ventura may look a lot like its predecessor, macOS 12 Monterey, but it packs a lot of useful new features (along with some potentially confusing user interface choices). Joe Kissell once again provides a complete guide to the upgrade process, as well as an in-depth look at what's new. While Stage Manager provides yet another way to manage your windows, apps like Mail and Messages finally offer solutions to longstanding irritations, Continuity Camera learns some fancy new tricks, and macOS offers even more options to manage your privacy and security. Take Control of Ventura walks you through all these changes. This book teaches you things like: • How to tell whether your Mac is compatible with Ventura • Steps you should take before upgrading • How to perform an in-place upgrade—or do a clean install and migrate your old data from a backup • Adapting to the sometimes-confusing new System Settings app, which replaces System Preferences • Managing windows and apps with Stage Manager • New Mail features—undo sending a message, schedule a message, follow up on messages awaiting replies, and more • Editing or unsending messages in the Messages app • Using new Safari 16 features, such as shared tab groups and editable suggested passwords • Understanding passkeys, which promise to replace passwords in many places—eventually • How to share a Photos library with family and friends • Using Continuity Camera to turn your iPhone into a webcam • Small but interesting changes throughout macOS, such as accessibility improvements, new features in Focus and Dictation, and expanded Live Text capabilities • How to use the brand-new Weather app • Improvements to bundled apps, including FaceTime, Maps, Notes, Reminders, and more

Take Control of Calendar and Reminders  4th Edition

Manage your schedule more effectively using Calendar and Reminders! Version 4.1, updated November 21, 2022 Learn basic techniques and special tips for keeping yourself on time and on track with Apple’s Calendar and Reminders apps.n In the days before personal computers and mobile devices, we had to rely on paper calendars and to-do lists to help us organize our time and activities. Now, we have powerful tools, like Apple’s Calendar and Reminders, that are much more responsive to our needs. Put an event on your schedule, invite others to join, or set yourself an alarm (or more than one). Or, keep a list of to-do items, add to it and view it on all your Apple devices, and share your list with family or friends. This book was originally written by veteran Mac journalist and editor Scholle McFarland, and the fourth edition was updated by Glenn Fleishman, with complete coverage of macOS 12 Monterey, macOS 13 Ventura, iOS 15/iPadOS 15, and iOS 16/iPadOS 16. Scholle and Glenn guide you through getting to know these incredibly helpful apps, including lesser-known (but handy) features. For example, did you know that Calendar lets you set an alert that factors in public transportation schedules and time to get to your starting point, so you can leave early enough to catch the train, bus, tram, or ferry you need—and any connections—and arrive at your event on time? Or that Reminders can prompt you to do something not only at a certain time, but also once you’ve reached a specific destination, like the grocery store? If you’ve never taken the opportunity to explore Calendar and Reminders, this book will show you how to make them an important part of your daily routine. If you’ve already been using Calendar and Reminders, you’ll learn how to use them more effectively, troubleshoot common problems, and delve deeper into their capabilities. This fully revised fourth edition is now up to date with macOS 13 Ventura, iOS 16/iPadOS 16, and watchOS 9 (as well as covering the previous version of each operating system), and it has been expanded with new topics and additional tips. Learn how to get the best out of Calendar and Reminders, including how to: • Customize Calendar to your liking, from setting time zones, to color coding specific calendars • Create events, making them repeat at regular intervals or on certain dates • Set up notifications and alerts, so you never miss an event • Invite people to events, or share your calendar with them • Create, manage, and share lists in Reminders, including powerful new smart lists • Set alarms in Reminders at a certain time or a certain place • Tag entries for better searching and organizing in Reminders • Use Siri to save time when creating events or reminders • Easily check events and reminders on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or HomePod • Troubleshoot common problems in Calendar and Reminders • Share calendars and reminders using iCloud Family Sharing, and assign reminders to a specific person • Sort reminders on your Mac • Print a calendar (to paper or PDF) • Embed video links in Calendar events for quick launching

Take Control of Securing Your Mac  2nd Edition

Keep your Mac safe from intruders, malware, and more! Version 2.1, updated November 21, 2022 Securing your Mac requires an attention to detail, but not a degree in computer science. This book provides everything you need to know to reduce your risk dramatically of intrusion, hijacking, and data extraction.n The digital world has never seemed more riddled with danger, even as Apple has done a fairly remarkable job across decades at keeping our Macs safe. But the best foot forward with security is staying abreast of past risks and anticipating future ones. Take Control of Securing Your Mac gives you all the insight and directions you need to ensure your Mac is safe from external intrusion and thieves or other ne'er-do-wells with physical access. Security and privacy are tightly related, and Take Control of Securing Your Mac helps you understand how macOS has increasingly compartmentalized and protected your personal data, and how to allow only the apps you want to access specific folders, your contacts, and other information. Here's what this book has to offer: • Master a Mac's privacy settings • Calculate your level of risk and your tolerance for it • Learn why you're asked to give permission for apps to access folders and personal data • Moderate access to your audio, video, and other hardware inputs and outputs • Get to know the increasing layers of system security in Ventura and Monterey • Prepare against a failure or error that might lock you out of your Mac • Share files and folders securely over a network and through cloud services • Set a firmware password and control other low-level security options to reduce the risk of someone gaining physical access to your Mac • Understand FileVault encryption and protection, and avoid getting locked out • Investigate the security of a virtual private network (VPN) to see whether you should use one • Learn how the Secure Enclave in Macs with a T2 chip or M-series Apple silicon affords hardware-level protections • Dig into ransomware, the biggest potential threat to Mac users, but still a largely theoretical one • Decide whether anti-malware software is right for you • Discover new security and privacy technologies in Ventura, such as Lockdown Mode and passkeys

While Apple nearly always errs on the side of disclosure and permission, many other firms don’t. This book comprehensively explains how to configure iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and iCloud-based services to best protect your privacy with messaging, email, browsing, and much more. The book also shows you how to ensure your devices and data are secure from intrusion from attackers of all types. Take Control of iOS & iPadOS Privacy and Security covers how to configure the hundreds of privacy and data sharing settings Apple offers in iOS and iPadOS, and which it mediates for third-party apps. You’ll learn how Safari has been increasingly hardened to protect your web surfing habits, personal data, and identity—particularly with the addition of the iCloud Private Relay, an option for iCloud+ subscribers to anonymize their Safari browsing. In addition to privacy and security, this book also teaches you everything you need to know about networking, whether you’re using 3G, 4G LTE, or 5G cellular, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, or combinations of all of them; as well as about AirDrop, AirPlay, Airplane Mode, Personal Hotspot, and tethering. You’ll learn how to: • Master the options for a Personal Hotspot for yourself and in a Family Sharing group. • Troubleshoot problematic Wi-Fi connections. • Set up a device securely from the moment you power up a new or newly restored iPhone or iPad. • Manage Apple’s new built-in second factor verification code generator for extra-secure website and app logins. • Get to know Apple’s passkeys, a new high-security but easy-to-use website login system with industry-wide support. • Protect your email by using an address Apple manages and relays messages through for you. • Understand Safari’s blocking techniques and how to review websites’ attempts to track you. • Learn about Apple’s privacy-challenging changes designed to improve the safety of children, both those using Apple hardware and those who suffer abuse. • Optimize cellular data use to avoid throttling or overage charges, while always getting the best throughput. • Understand why Apple might ask for your iPhone, iPad, or Mac password when you log in on a new device using two-factor authentication. • Figure out whether an embedded SIM (eSIM) is right for you—or the only choice. • Share a Wi-Fi password with nearby contacts and via a QR Code. • Differentiate between encrypted data sessions and end-to-end encryption. • Stream music and video to other devices with AirPlay 2. • Deter brute-force cracking by relying on a USB Accessories timeout. • Engage Lockdown Mode when directly targeted by high-end attackers, such as government spies—from your or another nation—and criminal organizations. • Configure Bluetooth devices. • Transfer files between iOS and macOS with AirDrop. • Block creeps from iMessage, FaceTime, text messages, and phone calls. • Secure your data in transit with a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection. • Protect Apple ID account and iCloud data from unwanted access at a regular level and via the new Safety Check, designed to let you review or sever digital connections with people you know who may wish you harm.

Take Control of Your Apple ID  3rd Edition

Prevent (or solve) problems with your Apple ID! Version 3.3.1, updated November 21, 2022 This book covers everything you need to know about configuring an Apple ID account, interactions with iCloud-based services, and troubleshooting account access. Your Apple ID is much more than a simple username. It's a key that unlocks a long list of Apple products and services on any of numerous devices. iCloud uses an Apple ID, as does Apple Music; the App Store; the Music, TV, and Books apps; and more. An Apple ID protects your personal information, including email and iOS/iPadOS backups; helps you find a lost iPhone; and can even unlock your Mac. So it goes without saying that if something goes wrong with your Apple ID, you could be in for a world of hurt. Unfortunately, things go wrong with Apple IDs all the time. Fortunately, Glenn Fleishman, a veteran technology journalist and the author of Macworld's "Mac 911" column, is ready to help with expert advice on how to manage your Apple ID—including how to prevent, solve, or work around most common problems! In this book, Glenn answers questions like: • What all is my Apple ID used for? • How does my iCloud account relate to my Apple ID? • What problems can two-factor authentication (2FA) solve, and how do I use it? • Are there other mechanisms I can use to ensure that I can recover an Apple ID in the event of a problem? (Spoiler: yes!) • What if I have a device that's too old to work with two-factor authentication? • What should I do if I have two or more Apple IDs or iCloud accounts? • Will I lose access to all my Apple media purchases if I move to another country? • Can I share an Apple ID with someone else? • What exactly should I do if I think someone is hacking my Apple ID account? • How can I recover a forgotten Apple ID password? • What steps should I take if Apple locks me out of my account? • If I lose access to an email address associated with my Apple ID, what can I do? • What Apple ID changes in recent versions of iOS, iPadOS, and macOS do I need to know about? • How does "Sign in with Apple" work? • How can I use Family Sharing to share data and purchases within my family? • What types of subscriptions can I manage with my Apple ID, and how? • Which payment methods can I associate with my Apple ID, and how do I manage them? And that's just the beginning. Glenn has packed a remarkable amount of concise problem-solving information into this compact, 140-page book. Read it before you encounter Apple ID problems to minimize your risk, and if you've already encountered a problem, read it to find the best path to a rapid solution.

Take Control of Your M Series Mac

Make a smooth transition to Apple silicon Version 1.5, updated August 26, 2022 This book teaches you everything you need to know about hardware and related software changes in Apple’s new M1- and M2-series Apple silicon Macs to make a transition from an Intel Mac, set up security with new options, create effective backups, and work with new options in recovery mode. Glenn Fleishman takes you through the details of how an M-series Mac handles startup, battery management, and running iOS, iPadOS, and Windows apps.

Talk City

Ventura. Compact: a. Covenant. For. Hard. Times. The state has decided to balance its budget on the backs of our local taxpayers again, taking some $4 billion from cities and counties around the state as part of a short-term fix.

Talk City

Talk City is a collection of the remarkable blogs the distinguished urban planner Bill Fulton wrote while serving as a member of the City Council in the California beach town of Ventura. The blog started out as a way to explain what had happened at the weekly council meetings. Before long, however, it turned into an evocative, real-time chronicle of what it was like to serve as an underpaid, overstressed, part-time local elected official during hard times. If you like local government and politics, you'll love how Talk City reveals the stresses and strains of serving as an elected official in a typical American city.

Spoiling for a Fight

More Americans now identify as political independents than as either Democrats or Republicans. Tired of the two-party gridlock, the pandering, and the lack of vision, they've turned in increasing numbers to independent and third-party candidates. In 1998, for the first time in decades, a third-party candidate who was not a refugee from one of the two major parties, Jesse Ventura, won election to state-wide office, as the governor of Minnesota. In 2000, the public was riveted by the Reform Party's implosion over Patrick Buchanan's presidential candidacy and by Ralph Nader's Green Party run, which infuriated many Democrats but energized hundreds of thousands of disaffected voters in stadium-sized super-rallies.What are the prospects for new third-party efforts? Combining the close-in, personal reporting and learned analysis one can only get by covering this beat for years, Micah L. Sifry's. Spoiling for a Fight exposes both the unfair obstacles and the viable opportunities facing today's leading independent parties. Third-party candidates continue be denied a fighting chance by discriminatory ballot access, unequal campaign financing, winner-take-all races, and derisive media coverage. Yet, after years of grassroots organizing, third parties are making major inroads. At the local level, efforts like Chicago's New Party and New York's Working Families Party have upset urban political machines while gaining positions on county councils and school boards. Third-party activists are true believers in democracy, and if America's closed two-party system is ever to be reformed, it will be thanks to their efforts

Independent Nation

Fifty percent of American voters define themselves as political moderates, two-thirds favor political solutions that come from the center of the political spectrum, and Independents outnumber both Democrats and Republicans. Bill Clinton and George W. Bush each explicitly used Centrist strategies to win the White House—and twenty-first-century candidates will be compelled to do the same. Independent Nation documents the rich history of the defining political movement of our time. Organized as a series of short and colorful political biographies, it offers an insightful and engaging analysis of the successes and failures of key Centrist leaders throughout the twentieth century.
