Publisher Comments:

Are you still in sleep mode? Here's a book that gets you out of your wait state . . . and welcomes you to both personal computers and the Internet--a book that can tell you about the cells in your spreadsheets, about authoring tools for your Web pages, and whether your Document Object Model is compatible with your browser.

This is the book for you. The Next Step. The shortcut key.

Don't let the computer world confuse you. Whether you need to familiarize yourself with the basic vocabulary of computers or the latest item of tech talk, the Random House Webster's Computer & Internet Dictionary, Third Edition, explains computer terminology in clear, simple language. At last, a book that is easy to understand--but doesn't treat the reader like someone with fewer than 12 function keys on the keyboard.

This is the computer dictionary that:

  • not only understands the experienced hacker, but welcomes the newbie into cyberspace
  • answers your FAQs
  • explains the bells and whistles in your software
  • upgrades you from plain ASCII to Unicode; from vanilla to true color; from crippled version to virtual reality and the World Wide Web

With more than 3,000 essential computer terms, carefully linked with abundant cross references and illustrated with more than 75 clear line drawings, this book will comfort and charm you as it informs.
