Do you sigh in frustration when your computer shows a blank screen for no apparent reason? Are you tired of waiting for your husband to install that wireless network? Have you felt belittled by the sales guy at your local tech emporium? Well, you’re not alone.In How to Be a Geek Goddess, author Christina Tynan-Wood shares the expertise she gained while writing for magazines like PC World and PC Magazine but keeps the book light and conversational. Like advice from the geek girlfriends you always wished you had, the book explains topics in a way you’ll understand: No patronizing guy bluster, unnecessary jargon, or information you aren’t interested in, just the stuff you need to know to get the job done. You’ll learn how to use your computer to get more done in less time, shop for gear, fit an ugly computer into a lovely living room, hang out in online communities, and keep yourself and your family safe online. Tynan-Wood covers basic and not-so-basic topics, like how to use VoIP to make inexpensive telephone calls over the Internet and set up a wireless network in your home. Why should computers and tech gadgets be the domain of men? Make them your own with How to Be a Geek Goddess. Armed with the knowledge you’ll gain from this book, you’ll seem like a computer whiz to everyone around you. They’ll be coming to you for tech support in no time!
