Overview

Push technology, the latest and greatest Internet media format, does your surfing for you. Push channels bring the latest news and information from the Web right to your computer, without your having to bat an eye (or click a mouse). Of course, before the Web comes to you, you need to choose the right push software for the job, download and install your new programs, personalize your preferences, and pick out some channels to install.

That's where Push Technology For Dummies comes in. Author Bud Smith introduces you to the hot push software that everyone's talking about, including PointCast, Marimba Castanet, and BackWeb. You also find out about the push features built right into Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 and Netscape Communicator 4. The best thing about channels is that they're fully customizable, and Push Technology For Dummies shows you how to choose the hottest content and make it work for you.
