Included is information on how to bank online and how to research the best prices for clothes, books, and prescription drugs.

Also covered is information on making a soundtrack with digital music, creating play lists with music already owned, and searching for new music with online services. Additionally, complete instructions on how to make a movie with digital video are provided. Included is a computer-based learning CD-ROM that extends the book by providing audio, video, and animated highlights of important concepts.
