From the Publisher:
This book answers the question, “What’s the point of buying one of the world’s best-selling smartphones when you may never really understand how the dang thing works?” Like the iPhone, the Droid 3 is packed with features, abilities that make it more than just a cell phone. This book documents all the features of the Droid, approaching them from the point of view of an intelligent person who is intimidated by the technology and baffled by the scant documentation and online support. All topics for the Droid will be covered, from setup and configuration, to using the phone features, texting, email, accessing the Internet, synching with a PC, using the camera, and expanding the phone’s potential with new software. The reader will keep this book on hand, referring to it often as they explore the features of their Droid phone. This book is targeted to Motorola Droid 3 owners.
computing: 1982. His first intention was to buy a computer to replace his aged and constantly breaking typewriter. As a restaurant worker, however, Gookin was unable to afford the full word processor setup, and settled on a computer that had a monitor, keyboard, and little else. Soon his writing career was underway with several submissions to fiction magazines and lots of rejections. The big break came in 1984 when he began writing about computers. Applying his flair for fiction with a self-taught knowledge of computers, Gookin was able to demystify the subject and explain technology in a relaxed and understandable voice. He even dared to add humor, which eventually won him a column in a local computer magazine. Eventually Gookin's talents came to roost as a ghostwriter at a computer book publishing house. That was followed by an editing position at a San Diego computer magazine. During this time, he also regularly participated on a radio talk show about computers. In addition, Gookin kept writing books about computers, some of which became minor bestsellers. His favorite quote is "Computers are a notoriously dull subject, but that doesn't mean I have to write about them that way."
