Computer Confluence: Tomorrow's Technology and You
"Computer Confluence" is more than a book: it's the confluence of three media resources: an illustrated textbook, a state-of-the-art CD-ROM, and up-to-the-minute web site. "Computer Confluence" goes beyond computer concepts and explores the promise and problems of information technology, how it affects people and society, and the future. Since 1994, thousands of students have been introduced to computers through the authors' unique approach. After an illustrative introductory chapter on computer basics, the book covers such topics as: hardware and software basics, graphics, digital media, and software media, networking and telecommunication, security and risks, and the internet and world wide web; as well as business information systems, electronic commerce, and e-business. An excellent reference resource for anyone interested in computers and computer concepts.
