Overview

The Winn L. Rosch Hardware Bible provides a background on how things work, puts competing technologies, standards, and products in perspective, and serves as a reference that provides quick answers for common computer and technology questions. It functions as a buying guide, telling not only what to buy, but why. It also lays the foundation for upgrading or repairing a computer, but stops short of the step-by-step mechanics of the process. The chief purpose of the Hardware Bible remains educational. Some new features in this edition include rewritable DVD technology as well as Blu-ray Discs, wireless networking including 802.11a and 802.11b, Bluetooth wireless communications, and extended coverage of digital cameras, scanners, and telecommunications...and much more!

Meet the Author

Winn L. Rosch has written about personal computers since 1981 and has penned nearly 1,500 articles about them¿a mixture of reviews, how-to guides, and background pieces explaining new technologies¿published in newspapers, magazines, and on the Web. He holds three patents on computer technologies and has won two awards for his writing. He has served as a contributing editor to more than half a dozen computer magazines (including PC Magazine) and as a technology reporter (now columnist) for the Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio's largest newspaper. His books and articles have been reprinted in several languages (among them French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish).

Besides writing, Rosch is an attorney licensed to practice in Ohio and holds a Juris Doctor degree. A member of the Ohio State Bar Association, he has served on the association's computer law committee. In other lifetimes, Rosch has worked as a photojournalist, electronic journalist, and broadcast engineer. When deadlines don't loom too close, Rosch has been known to ambush people to collect their images on photographic film, some of whose faces result in oil paintings. Although Rosch has abandoned his efforts at creating a perpetual motion machine (it kept him up at night), he is now putting the finishing touches on his latest creation, the world's first perpetual stillness machine.
