About this title

Synopsis:

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.
