Computer Desktop Encyclopedia (Alan Freedman)

More than 10,000 terms are included in this desktop dictionary, all of which are clearly and precisely defined. 800 illustrations are used to demonstrate technologies and make concepts clear.

In contrast to brief and dictionary definitions, the book's wide, "encyclopedic" format allows for as much detail as is necessary to explain concepts and historical context.

In addition to providing information on the most recent subjects and trends in the Internet, graphics, media, and electronics, buzzwords and acronyms are also explained and phonetically pronounced.

New words like Big Data and Cloud Computing are constantly being added.
