Does Mac have anything like an error log…anyplace??? I’ve been a programmer since ‘81 and Mac is the only OS I’ve found where things either work perfectly with unicorns and kittens or it silently does nothing with zero indication of why.
Case in point: I record a video on my iPhone. I sync my iPhone, I try to play the video on my MacTv (nothing, its not in my list of photos). I try to add the video to my ITunes library thinking that maybe a video ISA movie (even though I imported it into iPhoto), again(nothing).
Nothing fails of course because that would give me a clue what I did wrong (I’ve accepted that in Mac-land all errors are the user’s fault), they just quietly don’t do anything.
If your book can help under this kind of behavior I’ll go buy a copy :-)
