Don't understand computers (or all the powerful technologies that go with them)? You're not alone. Here's your solution: The Essential Guide to Computer Hardware. It's a 100% non-technical, math-free introduction to every type of computer and communications hardware, from PCs to Palms, digital cameras to cell phones. Jim Keogh starts with the elementary-school science you need to understand how computers and networks work. From there, you'll follow a clear, straight path that leads you through the technology behind cell phones, PCs, personal digital assistants, mobile devices, digital cameras, CD-ROMs, hard disks, speech recognition, WebCams, networks, computer audio, computer video, and more. The final chapters focus on the business side of computer hardware. Keogh takes you on a tour of the movers and shakers who drive the business: companies you'll recognize from Wall Street, as well as exciting new companies that aren't yet household names -- but will be. An ideal resource for anyone who wants to understand computer and communications technologies, including a wide range of non-technical people called upon to manage or use these technologies in their organizations.
