Take Control News: Master Your iPhone with Ted Landau's Advice

Send Article to a Friend

The iPhone was recently named Time Magazine's Invention of the Year, and there's certainly a lot to like about all the snazzy features it shoehorns into a shiny package. However, if you want to feel more in control of core features like syncing to your computer, setting up Mail accounts, and connecting to wireless networks, the new "Take Control of Your iPhone," by computer troubleshooting guru Ted Landau, explains what's happening under the hood so you can use your iPhone more effectively and with less hassle.

If you have questions about activating your iPhone, the nuances of the touchscreen and virtual keyboard, or customizing the settings for applications, this book has the answers. Where it truly shines, though, especially in comparison with other iPhone titles, is in its coverage of how to solve problems. Whether you're suffering a syncing feeling, can't get your email delivered, having trouble getting a charge out of your battery, or need to resuscitate a dead iPhone, you'll benefit from Ted's many years of experience with authoring best-selling troubleshooting books. This completely up-to-date ebook walks you through dozens of step-by-step problem-solving procedures, while offering tips for smart ways to use the iPhone along the way. For the adventurous, Ted also covers iPhone hacking and how to deal with updating (or not updating) a hacked iPhone.

Through the end of December, an introductory offer drops the 195-page ebook's $15 price to only $10. Get your copy today!

(Owners of the preview version of the ebook - titled "Take Control of Troubleshooting Your iPhone" - can get the full "Take Control of Your iPhone" by clicking the Check for Updates link in the preview PDF.)
