Excerpts from the Book

“As you left the store with your shiny new iPhone, it probably didn’t take long for the euphoria and confidence instilled by the salesperson’s jaunty “Oh, it’s totally intuitive!” assurances to wear off. Not long after, you realized that your iPhone’s a tiny little Apple computer, perhaps the first one you ever set your fingers on, and intuitive isn’t the first word you’d use to describe it. Around this point, you may have tried to access your email or figure out how to get turn-by-turn directions to your cousin’s new apartment, only to end up stumped and frustrated. Luckily, instead of heading straight back to the store to return your new bundle of headaches, you found this e-book. Congratulations! Together we’ll explore all the iPhone’s joys, quirks and awesomeness while you get your new iPhone integrated into your tech life.”

“One last note of reassurance: Studies have proven that performing complex tasks helps your brain stay young and agile. After spending far too long trying to figure out why your Fantasy Football interactive scorecard won’t show up on your phone (hint: Apple iOS doesn’t support Flash, a Web coding program sometimes used to make online content animated or interactive), at least you’ll know that your brain is one step closer to being 13 again.”
