              Android For Dummies (Paperback, 2nd Edition)

              This book focuses on Android technology for both phones and tablets. The difference between the two is slight, primarily that phones can place and receive phone calls, and tablets feature more screen real estate. Beyond that, both devices work identically. Indeed, the existing ti...tles featured a lot of overlap. As with previous titles, this book covers Android technology for a beginner or anyone who uses an Android mobile device and feels that the gizmo is getting the best of them. This book documents all the features of the Android phone and tablet, approaching them from the point of view of a smart person who is intimidated by the technology and baffled by the scant documentation and online support. All topics for the Android will be covered, from setup and configuration, to use of the phone features: texting, emailing, accessing the internet, maps, navigation, camera and video, synching with a PC, and expanding the device's potential with new software. As usual, humor is generously sprinkled throughout the text. The accessible and fun writing style provides relief but never gets in the way of the book's important content. The reader will end up keeping this book close, referring to it often as they explore the features of their Android phone or tablet. It covers all the updates to the OS through the latest version release. Updates include: Android 10, both the Google Pixel and Samsung versions All new screenshots and illustrations Privacy protection features Updated security and anti-virus features System-wide gesture navigation Android Auto (for cars) Night Light and Dark Mode Google Duo for video calling Playground camera features

              In business, laptops are essential to providing mobility to workers. Many business laptops spend much of their time in a desktop docking station and are always available to hit the road. In the home, laptops are most often purchased as a second PC. And now that laptops offer larg...er displays, longer battery power, and speeds equal to desktop computers, some users have sworn off desktops altogether. This trend is going to continue. The laptop makes a natural second (or only) PC. Laptops For Dummies covers the many issues unique to laptops include synchronizing with the desktop, coordinating email pickup between two machines, remote access to the desktop, networking, power management, storage, and laptop security.
