Product Description

Product Description

Written with non-technical readers in mind, this no nonsense guide will help you make the most of your Internet connection, and keep your browsing, downloads and general Internet usage from slowing down.

You don't need to be a techie to follow the instructions, but a basic understanding of every day computer usage (using a mouse and keyboard, opening and running a program, searching for and copying files etc.) is assumed. Learn what affects your Internet speed, test your own line speed to find out exactly what bandwidth you are getting, and optimise your hardware and software for the best performance.

Dave Barry, author of How To Facebook, How To Tweet, and How To Easily Speed Up My Computer, brings you another no-nonsense guide to computer use for the everyday user.

1.0 out of 5 stars Information is not true July 29 2012
By VirtualDXS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded the sample and looked at it a little, and all I saw was incorrect information. First of all, it says that the Internet is a database with many "server machines" (true, but pretty badly worded), but then it says that it belongs to your ISP! That is a complete LIE! For those of you who read and believed it (I don't blame you), nobody owns the Internet, but individual people and companies own different servers which make up the Internet.

To sum that up, the author just didn't know what he was talking about.

And I'm a 12-year-old boy. Check my facts if you want, but I know that they're correct, which means a kid knows more than the author of this book.

Doesn't cover anything that any individual with basic computer skills doesn't already know. Most of this information is already on the internet. There is nothing new here.
