High Definition: An A to Z Guide to Personal Technology
High Definition:  An A to Z Guide to Personal Technology

New technology brings with it new terminology. The information technology that now pervades our lives demands a new kind of dictionary — one that covers this new array of electronic devices not simply because they are technically forbidding, but because they are a primary means by which we interact with each other. It is to meet this demand that we present High Definition: An A to Z Guide to Personal Technology.

What's the difference between an MP3 and an MP4? How is "electronic" different from "digital"? Where, and what, is the "cell" in my cell phone? High Definition: An A to Z Guide to Personal Technology provides answers to these and thousands of other questions about the technology we live with and depend on.

With more than 3,000 terms, this is the first dictionary to bring together both the basic and the not-so-basic vocabularies of home computers, cell phones, modems, the Internet, CD and DVDplayers, monitors and screens, gaming systems, and other information technology found in houses, offices, backpacks, and pockets. Both the nontechnically minded and the techno-savvy will find theexplanations and cross-references helpful, clear, and interesting. With more than 500 abbreviations and acronyms, this is an indispensable reference in a world full of technological shorthand. No other book on the market puts so much information about the technology we use every day into one convenient and thorough volume.
