Overview

New communication technologies are being introduced at an astonishing rate. Making sense of these technologies is increasingly difficult. Communication Technology Update is the single best source for the latest developments, trends, and issues in communication technology. Now in its ninth edition, Communication Technology Update has become an indispensable information resource for business, government, and academia.

As always, every chapter has been completely rewritten to reflect the latest developments and market statistics, and now covers mobile computing, digital photography, personal computers, digital television, and electronic games, in addition to the two dozen technologies explored in the previous edition.

The book's companion website (www.tfi.com/ctu) offers updated information submitted by chapter authors and offers links to other Internet resources.
