Publisher Description

How Computers Work Multi-Touch Version is an iPad-only edition of the best-selling print book, How Computers Work, which has dazzled readers for years with its incisive look at the inner-workings of computers, printers, monitors, cell phones, networking, operating systems and more.  The Multi-Touch version includes many new and exciting features that take the one-of-a-kind How Computers Work experience to the next level. Here's a look at just a few of the new features you'll find in the Multi-Touch version:


The Touch ExperienceHow Computers Work has always been a beautiful book to look at, with loads of informative content to absorb, but the ability to drag, pinch, and tap your way through its wealth of content is an entirely new experience that enhances every facet of how it teaches you about the computing world. 


Interactive Elements—We have added direct interactivity to more than a dozen of the topics covered in this book. Send a power surge into a surge protector to see how it protects your pricey electronics. Drag data into a processor to see how it divides up a work load and computes an answer. You'll even control the flow of light through an LCD monitor as you learn how it generates an image! 


Animations, 3D Models, and Video—See first-hand how morphing software morphs a photo or how video compression and resolution change the quality of a digital video. Learn how a 3D model goes from wireframe to textured object and then manipulate that object yourself. Have you ever wondered just how a transistor physically controls the flow of electrons to turn itself on and off? You'll see it in action here!
