Synopsis:

This bestselling author team makes it simple and fun for computer users to understand topics such as ASCII, Java, Active X, and Fatal Error and new terminology such as Pentium III, Xeon, XML, and XHTML. Readers learn how to properly use terms and pronounce them while also learning their history. Lots of clever illustrations make this guide easy to digest.

Now you can throw away that jargon-filled owner's manual and replace it with Illustrated Computer Dictionary For Dummies, 4thEdition. Acclaimed computing authors Dan and Sandra Gookin take readers by the hand and lead them on a journey through their new toy (uh, I mean tool). Illustrated Computer Dictionary For Dummies, 4th Edition covers all the terms new (and old) users want to know about in a humorous and typical Gookin and For Dummies style.
