Adam and Tonya Engst unveiled their first Take Control book ten years ago, in a world that was barely getting used to the idea of ebooks. Today, Take Control has influenced the way ebooks are created, and the standards to which they are held. In a bonus-length interview, Adam and Tonya talk about the origins of the Take Control series, why “series” is such an important concept, and why they take their craft so seriously. Why “Take Control” and not some other series title? How has the production process evolved over time and why? Which book really needs some extra attention from readers? All that and more in this passionate and fun discussion.

Ted Landau talks about his thinking on his thinking on the iPad Air vs. iPad mini with Retina and why he’s waiting until he can hold them both, then dives into Mavericks. Ted’s upgrade went smoothly, but there are always those annoying little issues. Deleting tags in Mavericks, dual display mode and using Gmail with Mail have all been items that need attention, and Ted gives it, along with what he thinks are the long term implications of the iWork file changes. Finally, Ted does a little cost analysis on the upcoming Mac Pro tower and draws his conclusions on who will be in line when it is released.
