The Internet is almost synonymous with change--that's one of its charms, and one of its headaches . You may think you know the Internet, but are you really up to speed on internet telephones, movie and TV downloading, blogging, gaming, online banking, dating , and photosharing?

This utterly current book covers:

  • Getting Online: Readers will have all the information they need to decide what kind of broadband connection works best for them, which browser they should use, and what kind of spyware-fighting and virus-and spam-protection measures they need to protect themselves .

  • Finding Information: Google may be the leading search site, but it's certainly not the only game in town. This book introduces a diverse and useful collection of sites that help uncover everything from health care information, to shopping, travel and finance, to dependable reviews and ratings.

  • Movies, music, and photos: The Web's teeming with entertainment--and not just the sort of postage -stamp sized videos that only a geek could love. Learn where to download movies, watch TV online, listen to music, play games , and post and share photos with friends .

  • Keeping in touch: Email's only the beginning. This book introduces readers to the many tools that make the modern Internet such a great way to stay connected. From Web-based discussion groups to instant messaging programs, and from blogs and podcasts to Internet-based phone calls, this book will help you join the conversation.
