Summary "Did you know that you can dry out your wet cell phone by putting its parts in separate bowls of uncooked rice? That you can scroll through a website using only your spacebar? That if you type your airline and flight number in to Google, it tells you where your flight is, the gate, terminal, and how long until it lands? ... Pogue's tips have earned him 1.5 million followers on Twitter. And now that he writes his columns for Yahoo Tech, the audience for this advice has grown by millions more. Here at last is the book all these fans have been waiting for: a book of 200 tips that will change your relationship to your phone, computer, tablet, camera--all of the technology in your life"-- Provided by publisher.
