Uhm...maybe I'm missing something. On page 22, there's mention of Airplay, with a note to see the “Connect Your Mac” chapter for more information on AirPlay. I click the link, it takes me to the "Connect Your Mac" chapter, and...no airplay...all it talks about is printers...
if it is to be, it is up to me...

Hi there! The AirPlay section is within the Connect Your Mac chapter, under "Share Your Files (and Your Screen)" on page 178 in the PDF.

Hi, Serenity - this looks great... do you address how to remove the user login? I just got my GF the sweet new Macbook Air and it has Mountain Lion on it, and as the only user she doesn't want to have to enter her password every time she opens the thing up... I've tried without success to remove this. It would be worth the PDF book to work this out for her... thanks, Britt

britographer:

A) Unless your GF's sweet new MBA will never leave the house, she really should get used to logging in, even if she is the only user—it's just basic security.

B) Since you'll ignore A) anyway...

- go to System Preferences > Users & Groups.
- Click the padlock in the lower left and enter an admin password you've set this option in the Security & Privacy pane.
- Select your GF's user account in the left-side pane, then "Login Options" below that. Now you should see a drop-down list labeled "Automatic login" on the right. It's probably set to "Off" right now.
- Select your GF's account from the list.
- There is no Step 3.

HTH.

@Serenity, ah - it must be in the full document. I was looking through the preview. Thanks!
