The Digital Dictionary is a compilation of easy to understand explanations for technical terms, abbreviations and acronyms that are used in our daily lives and on a daily basis. Not all of us know the real meaning when we talk about gigabyte, DSL or cable modems and USB connectors... but most of us wish they would know! Over nine years of research, hundreds of interviews and thousands of computer hours went into writing this book. With The Digital Dictionary the reader will have a simple way of accessing translations for the most common terms and he or she will finally know the real meaning of today's tech-talk. Since this book was written for the most common buzzwords, it can only contain a limited amount of information because our language, our vocabulary and our tech-talk grows every day. Therefore it is not unusual to come across a section in The Digital Dictionary, where the reader might think a word or abbreviation is missing... however... it is not... it was just not "common" enough to be included. The author does not warrant The Digital Dictionary to be error-free. However - this book was compiled by using due diligence and reasonable common sense, but changes, updates and additions may be necessary to reflect new terms or acronyms in the future.
