Joe Kissell, fresh off a relocation in Paris, talks about his new place before explaining why his latest Take Control book, Take Control of Backing Up Your Mac, combines and updates several previous titles, and why it was time for the change. Joe takes us through how changes in the Mac OS and technology in general have affected backup strategy and design, some of the options that have fallen from favor, and why. The new book is for the person who wants to be told what to do, and also for those who want to explore the many alternatives available. Joe explains how he accomplishes the mix and outlines his current preferred backup methods.
