Looking for book 'Smartphones for Dummies'
Posted on 2016-08-26
I am looking for a book something like 'Smartphones for Dummies'. There are ample Dummies books about specific smartphone technologies - e.g. iOS, Android. What I need is a general book about using smartphones, which will (and should) reference specific technologies.
I will be giving a talk at Book Club, to intelligent lay folks, about how smartphones work and tips about using Apps, e.g. messaging. It is usual to recommend book. As I like to say to novice smart phone users - "we know who you are and we know where you are".
I would discuss part of the reason why this is true - e.g. if you drive from TN to CA, how does your iPhone know where you are? Answer: your iPhone is frequently 'pinging' cell towers to determine how/where to originate calls.
