Overview

Completely updated, Tomorrow’s Technology and You, Ninth Edition provides you with an understanding of information technology so you can successfully navigate change and advance into the future.

Computer technology is showing up in everything from automobiles to home appliances to telephones to televisions, and the lines that separate these machines are fading. This digital convergence is rapidly—and radically—altering the world in which we live.
