Publisher's Description

Do you feel that you have been left behind in the technological revolution? Are you looking for sound, practical advice on getting the most out of email and the Internet? If so, The Internet and email for the Over 50s is exactly what you need! Focusing on a wide range of internet and email uses that are of particular relevance and interest to older computer users and the technologically terrified, including travel, shopping and much more, this book even covers online dating!


The author approaches the subject in a highly accessible way, covering emailing, making calls over the Internet, shopping online, banking, setting up a blog and searching online. Starting from first basics, it begins with how to choose the right computer, software and peripherals. Made up of of self-contained chapters with the emphasis on what the computer is being used for, rather than scary technical stuff about the software needed, this book covers key areas of interest including: getting started with email, sending and receiving emails and attachments; making phone calls over the internet (VOIP etc), 'chatting' online; reading and writing blogs; keeping your personal information safe online and keeping your computer safe from viruses; finding what you need on the internet, shopping, banking and online auctions. Filled with clear instructions and supported with screenshots, tips, hints and a full 'jargon-busting' glossary, it assumes no prior knowledge of using the internet and email, guiding you with practical good humour to success.
