The sexy, elegant design of the Apple PowerBook combined with the Unix-like OS X operating system based on FreeBSD, have once again made OS X the Apple of every hacker’s eye. In this unique and engaging book covering the brand new OS X 10.4 Tiger, the world’s foremost “true hackers” unleash the power of OS X for everything form cutting edge research and development to just plain old fun.

OS X 10.4 Tiger is a major upgrade for Mac OS X for running Apple’s Macintosh computers and laptops. This book is not a reference to every feature and menu item for OS X. Rather, it teaches hackers of all types from software developers to security professionals to hobbyists, how to use the most powerful (and often obscure) features of OS X for wireless networking, WarDriving, software development, penetration testing, scripting administrative tasks, and much more.
