The world's number-one Mac guru David Pogue will expose the hidden secrets of Apple's Mac OS X Tiger operating system in a "Super Session" at the Macworld Conference 2005, which takes place at London's mega MacExpo show (October 27-28).

Previously, Pogue has been a star at Macworld conferences in San Francisco, Boston and New York. He is the weekly personal-technology columnist for the New York Times and an Emmy award-winning tech correspondent for CBS News. With 3 million books in print, he is also one of the world's bestselling how-to authors. He wrote or co-wrote seven books in the "For Dummies" series (including Macs, iMac and iBook) as well as celebrated 'Macworld Mac Secrets'; in 1999, he launched his own series of computer books called the Missing Manual series, which now includes 30 titles.

Missing Manual Based on his book 'Mac OS X: The Missing Manual', this session is a life preserver tossed to anyone who's interested in finding out which of the 200 new Tiger features are worth learning, and which old features wound up in new places.

"Among the 200 features that Apple says are new in Tiger, some aren't exactly earth-shattering," says Pogue. "However, a few are actually underhyped," he points out.

In an exhilarating crash course, Pogue will take Conference attendees beyond the quick descriptions of the features that really matter – Spotlight, Dashboard, networking and more – and show how to harness them for day-to-day work.

In what promises to be a highly entertaining session, Pogue makes Apple's newest Mac OS X operating system sing, dance, and walk on its head. Attendees will witness a parade of undocumented shortcuts, learn how to use which features when, and marvel at the comedy that can be had at a technical seminar.

Free book Elsewhere at the Conference, other Mac thought-leaders such as Photoshop wizard Deke McClelland and Macworld's back-page columnist Andy Ihnatko will throw the spotlight on cutting-edge developments in applications such as Mac OS X Tiger, Apple’s iLife, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and QuarkXPress.

Attendees will discover the hidden tips and tricks utilised by the Mac's top practitioners to dramatically enhance your skills and gain the insights you need to get the most from your technology investment.
