Product Description:

This text focuses on the human side of computing, emphasizing issues and trends rather the technical detail. It discusses how to use computers in order to be productive and aware in the 1990s and contains rules of thumb which provide practical tips for avoiding pitfalls and problems.

From the Back Cover:

Computer Confluence, Fourth Edition, presents computers and information technology on three levels:

  • Explanations: Computer Confluence explains what a computer is and what it can (and can't) do; it explains the basics of information technology, from multimedia PCs to the Internet, clearly and concisely.
  • Applications: Computer Confluence clearly illustrates how computers and networks can be used as practical tools to access, create, and share information at school, work, and home.
  • Implications Computer Confluence puts computers in a human context, illustrating how information technology affects our lives, our world, and our future.
