  • Superb, in depth review

    You don't have to be tech savvy to read this - but it, and the author, helps. Lots of detailed analysis and clever insights as well as a humorous writing style. Easily worth the low price.
  • Siracusa’s must-have is gorgeous on iBooks!

    Installing the latest OS X and reading Siracusa’s review are inseparable actions for me :) I bought the Kindle edition last time (eeeek!) and am so much happier with having bought the iBooks version this time. Reading is smooth, all screenshots can be double clicked, the many links open smoothly in Safari. Yes, the links. Ueber-Geek John Siracusa has hundreds of them. If you must know what he wrote on a topic in 2005, you can just click on a link. He won’t bore you with those details in the review, but if you need to look into them you can. I love John’s writing. He is venomous, precise, relentless, funny, authoritative, and strangely never boring. Strangely so, as nobody else (nobody else famous, anyway) dares to go into such detail. Updating OS X without reading Siracusa means wasting a lot of potential and cheating yourself out of a good laugh. Invest the time - it’s worth it. And get the iBooks edition - it’s just soooo smooth.
