How to Do Everything with Your Pocket PC - Frank McPhersonOsborne McGraw-Hill, 2000, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.
CLEARANCE OFFER - EXPIRES: 14 November 2009 Throughout the 602 pages, McPherson literally tackles just about everything you can do with one of these devices, and sensibly covers both the brand new palm form factor PocketPCs, along with the older Windows CE Handheld PCs with keyboards and bigger screens. The book is divided into four sections. The first gets you started with some interesting history on the platform, along with actually getting connected to PCs for synchronising information--if you thought serial cables and infra red was as clever as synchronising got, McPherson also explains how to do it over an ethernet network and remote dialup connections. The second section deals with the standard applications like Pocket Outlook, Pocket Word and Pocket Excel; it also covers the recent inclusion of Pocket Money, along with using Pocket PowerPoint, Pocket Access, and finding the best games and third party utilities to download. Speaking of which, Section Three deals with going online and taking Web content with you on the move, while Section Four handles customisation with Control Panel tips and explanations of peripherals. The latter chapter in particular clears up some popular misconceptions: for example, the Iomega Clik! PC Card drive won't work in the Handheld PC's PC Card slot, and the only thing you can connect to a Handheld PCs USB port is a mouse. 512pp.
