When Information Technology Enters our Lives...

 

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.

 

Completely updated the latest technologies, Tomorrow’s Technology and You, Eighth 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 presented on three levels:

  1. Explanations–Clearlyexplains 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. Implication–Putscomputers in a human context, illustrating how information technology affects our lives, our world, and our future.

Tomorrow’s Technology and You, Eighth 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.
