Learn how to synchronize all your data between Macs, or with mobile phones, PDAs, and iPods!

With clear directions and a humorous touch, Take Control of Syncing in Tiger walks you through tasks like syncing data with your iPhone, iPod, or Apple TV, syncing phone numbers between your Mac and mobile phone or PDA; syncing files between your desktop and laptop Macs; and sharing Safari bookmarks and keychains between Macs. You'll learn what gear you need and the best ways to move your data between devices, whether your syncing software is built in to Tiger, works through .Mac, or comes from an independent Mac developer.

The book also explains how Apple's syncing model works under the hood, and when things don't work as expected, you'll appreciate its practical troubleshooting advice.
