Wiley, May 2, 2003 - Computers - 432 pages
Comprehensive, authoritative - and user-friendly!

Whether you're a computer novice or a computer professional, Webster's New World Computer Dictionary is one of the most useful references you can buy.

It gives you clear and concise definitions for more than 4,750 up-to-date computer terms, including 250 that are completely new to this edition.

You'll find current coverage of the latest standards and protocols in storage, memory, peripherals, and more-plus updated and expanded information on computer security, legislation, and computer and Internet technology. Cross-referencing throughout directs you effortlessly to related terms and concepts that help you understand more about a given subject and put it into a larger context.

From using e-mail and going on the Internet (attachment, computer virus, cookie, shopping cart) to buying or upgrading a computer (Ethernet, G4, Pentium 4, SDRAM) to boning up on terminology for a computer industry job (Advanced Encryption Standard, timecode editing, virtual private network), this invaluable resource gives you instant flip-and-find access to the information you need-from A (applet) to Z (zip drive).
