Digital babe-in-the-woods or a veteran chip head, it's hard to stay on the cutting edge. Byte Me! is the key to understanding the many ways in which this new, exciting phenomenon known as the Information Revolution is jerking your chain. In this fast-paced world of ergonomic egg-timers and interactive dust bunnies, reliable, no-nonsense information is your best resource.
In this book you'll learn how to crash your computer almost as well as Windows does, remove computer screws embedded in your forehead from pounding your head in frustration, avoid vendors who advertise "Incredible Bait and Switch Deals!", and learn if your Software Licensing Agreement carries more obligations than a favor from Don Corleone.
