What is all that jargon? Whatdo those acronyms stand for? Find out, painlessly! All the latest gobbledygook demystified, from ;-) through zoom box, and beyond!
Booknews
An informative and hilarious dictionary of plain-English explanations of terms, acronyms, and technologies. Fun entries and silly illustrations poking fun at computer geeks are interspersed with brief definitions of simple and advanced terms. For instance, the colon (:) is illustrated with a picture of General Colin Powell. Tee hee. Icons identify terms related to the Internet, Windows, and Macintosh.
