Available in three separate editions for maximum user flexibility, Computer Confluence combines three information sources—an illustrated book, a multimedia CD-ROM, and an up-to-the-minute Companion Website—to explore the promises and challenges of information technology, its effect on businesses, people, society, and the future. Chapter topics include hardware basics; software basics; basic office applications; graphics, digital media, and multimedia; database applications and implications; networking and telecommunication; and the Internet and the World Wide Web. For educators, theologians, writers, artists, and others for whom technology is an important tool but not a passion.
