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

 

Today we’re standing at the junction of three powerful and rapidly evolving technological forces: computers, communications, and digital entertainment. 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.

From the Back Cover:

Information Technology and Your Life . . .

 

Today we live in a digital world, where technology is fully intertwined with our daily lives.  From our automobiles to our appliances, from our cell phones to our televisions, from our workplaces to our classrooms, computer technology is everywhere around us. This powerful juncture of computers, digital communications, and digital entertainment has already transformed our lives and will continue to rapidly–and radically–alter our world.

 

Completely updated with the latest technologies, Digital Planet: Tomorrow’s Technology and You , Tenth Edition, provides you with an understanding of information technology so you can successfully navigate change and advance into the future. To accomplish this, computers and information technology are explored on three levels:

 

1. Explanations–Clearly explains what a computer is and what it can (and can’t) do, along with the basics of information technology, from digital media to the Internet and beyond.

 

2. Applications–Illustrates how computers and networks are–and will be–used as practical tools to solve a wide variety of problems.

 

3. Implications–Puts computers in a human context, illustrating how information technology affects our lives, our world, and our future.

 

 

Digital Planet: Tomorrow’s Technology and You , Tenth Edition, goes beyond simply describing the latest technology. It explains the many benefits we derive and risks we accept when information technology enters our lives.

Book Description Prentice Hall, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Want to invite the new neighbors over for a dinner fresh from your garden? Need some great ideas for that next SEC football Saturday? Hoping to outdo your sister-in-law's famous potato salad at the Fourth of July picnic? You know you are! Y'all Come Over is a celebration of Southern entertaining and the recipes that always find their way into the spotlight at any good down-home s gathering. Join Patsy Caldwell and Amy Lyles Wilson to discover a South where the blackberry lemonade is always perfectly chilled and the chicken fried steak with cream gravy was perfected long ago. It's where the bacon-wrapped barbecued shrimp is a mainstay for those last-minute get-togethers, and where the fancy roasted asparagus and beef tenderloin is the perfect company-worthy menu. It's where the praline bundt cake is sweet enough to swing the vote in a local election, and where a visit from the preacher is worthy of the best pot roast recipe east of the Mississippi. Y'all Come Over is a reminder that Southern entertaining doesn't have to be fussy, and that there's always a way to extend that trademark hospitality to your friends and family any day of the week. Holidays and birthdays are only the beginning. You'll quickly learn that just about any day of the week deserves a healthy dose of neighborliness and some crowd-pleasing Southern cooking! So get ready to become that hostess with the fried green tomatoes and farm fresh squash tarts that leave the neighbors scrambling to accept another dinner invitation. And pretty soon your sweet tea-brined pork chops will have everyone begging for the recipe. It's time to grab a drink, put up your feet, and prepare for a lesson in Southern hospitality. Discover what makes it so special and how you can be that celebrated entertainer in your own circle of family and friends. Book jacket. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0132091534
