Thus we cover not only business software, personal computers, and the Internet, but also such fundamentals as computer architecture and binary arithmetic. Accordingly, we cover key concepts of computer law, ethics, and even humor, as well as the lively, ever-changing world of the Internet and World Wide Web. Continuously in print with frequent revisions since 1986, this is by far our most popular book.

I find the Dictionary to be a very handy item since it is pocket size. This is my third edition. I rely on it to keep me versed in the technical arena without going on-line and I like the diagrams. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because the print is a bit finer compared to earlier editions which I feel certain that it helps to keep the book less bulky and the cost down. It also forces me to put my glasses on. But I, still, highly recommend the dictionary for those that are willing to open a book and turn a page to get well needed information.

This dictionary is what you would call "current" being updated in 2013, however, the number of entries is limited to 3,200; this is the tradeoff for it being small and portable. It is just a bit bigger than pocket sized. By contrast, the fifth edition of the Microsoft Computer Dictionary has over 10,000 terms, but is bulkier and is quite out of date (2002). I bought both of them and between the two I seem to get pretty good coverage of computer terms. I was also surprised at the number of pictures and illustrations this has - a much higher percentage than the Microsoft dictionary.

My wife needed a reference book for computer terms in her job, and this book was very current. It appears to be a perfect solution. In dictionary form, so it's easy to use, and is only slightly larger than a paperback. If you need something like this, it is a great choice.

It is a compact book but it is also chock full of information. I've been involved with computers since the earlier 1980's and have a Computer Science degree and purchased this dictionary simply because I thought it would be an interesting "read". Although I never fooled myself into believing that I know every possible computer/internet related word, I am well versed with many words and definitions of the genre. Regardless, I was able to learn many new words and phrases that I had never seen until purchasing this dictionary. There are even some humorous definitions hidden within the text.
If you are not a 'puter geek or don't even play one on TV (the American readers should get that joke) then this is a nice dictionary to keep around the desk for those moments when you have no idea what the heck some technophile is talking about. If you are the in-house geek and you think you already know it all then you will find this a fun book to keep beside the john for those "delayed moments".

I purchased the dictionary in January 2010 because I thought it would be a useful tool for writing documentation and to find those terms that are outside my area of knowledge, primarily networking, mainframe, and terms related to ISP, ASP, and Hosted Systems. I also negotiate technology contracts and not every technology company agrees on the same definition for an IT product or service. I was looking for clear and easy to understand standardized definitions I could add to our own contracts.

After spending about an hour looking up terms that I knew were in mainstream use and had been for a few years I found the dictionary missing many common IT terms. I don't know if they were left out intentionally or if it was an oversight but it made the dictionary useless to me. I know it's difficult to keep up with the jargon but at the very least it would have been useful to include new cutting edge terms (back then the "cloud" was just being hinted at) and annotate those that were not fully defined. For a dictionary that was only months old it was missing too many terms and had too many archaic terms left in.

It's now September 2012 and it really hasn't been any use to me in the 2 1/2 years I've owned it. Hopefully a future edition will be online and have more up-to-date terms. I know it's got to be time consuming and tough to put something like this together and, generally, most of my reference material winds up being outdated in 6 months. This dictonary, unfortunately, was outdated before it even hit production.

This dictionary is quite useful, handy, and informative for anyone who is even the least bit curious about computer terminology.
Compact-sized, fits in your pocket and/or computer case or backpack. This little gem will help make you much more knowledgeable on the topic. Once you learn the lingo, you'll immediately know what is being talked about, because this book covers and explains abbreviations and illustrations are fairly plentiful. If you are a novice or even somewhat experienced, this is a great book at a greater price and deserves to be in you library.

This seems to a little more than Dictionary of Computer and Internet Terms. I am very well pleased with it and also the layout!!!
If only I had known about this gem of a book sooner! The Dictionary of Computer and Internet Terms FINALLY gives me somewhere to turn
when I run into one of those words so frequently found in Computerese, the name that I use for the language of Computers.

Prior to finding this book, I spent countless hours trying to find out what a specific term or word meant. Suddenly...FTP instead of
saying something to me like "F ind T his P uppy" magically became "F ile T ransfer P rotocol" in two blinks of an eye! Then, even
greater wonder of wonders....the Dictionary proceeds to explain what it is and how it is applied in everyday Computer Use!

There are over 500 fact packed pages in this Dictionary, making it the Rosetta Stone of Computerese! If you plan to continue to
associate yourself with the World of Computers, this book is a Welcome MUST! I recommend it highly!
