Summary Modern life is packed with information technology, but many technical terms leave us with puzzling questions. With many terms, this is the first dictionary to bring together both the basic and the not-so-basic vocabulary of home computers, cell phones, networks, CD and DVD players, monitors and TVs, and other devices found in houses, offices, backpacks, and handbags. Both the non-technically-minded and the techno-savvy will find the explanations and cross-references clear, straightforward, and informative.
High Definition will help readers not only to decipher confusing technological language, but also to bone up on the technical specifications of electronic products and why they matter. Explaining hundreds of abbreviations and acronyms, this thorough volume is an indispensable reference in a world full of technological shorthand.
