Maximum Mac
Mac computers combine power, ease of use, and stylish packaging. But most of us use only a tiny fraction of our Macs' capabilities. Increase your productivity, have more fun, and get the most out of your investment with this two-part session. Author and Mac expert Joe Kissell specializes in making complex topics entertaining and easy to understand for nontechnical audiences. He starts by teaching you how Mac geeks think, what tools and techniques they use, and how they solve problems. Then he covers essential Mac security topics including backups, dealing with passwords, and staying safe on the Internet. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, you'll benefit from Joe's clear and insightful explanations.

iPad Essentials
Apple's iPad may be the biggest thing in computing since the PC. It's compact, inexpensive, and multitalented—but it's also an entirely different experience from a Mac or PC. Learn the best ways to use your iPad for work or play, what apps you can't live without (and which ones you should avoid), what accessories will make your life easier, and whether you can get rid of your laptop and use only an iPad. Joe Kissell, author of "Take Control of Working with Your iPad," takes you from the basics right through to advanced iPad geekery in a single enjoyable afternoon.

Joe Kissell is a best-selling, award-winning author and technologist and a popular speaker at Mac-themed events.
