Windows Me! I didn't know you could do that . . .

Monkeys aside (yes, the cover is a little off-putting), this book offers Windows Me users a guide through some of the methods to customise your PC. It's not all customisation; the book also focuses on the less obvious features of this operating system.

For a shared PC, some content is devoted to setting up user profiles, so each user can choose their preferred settings, but not at the expense of someone else's. The section on keyboard shortcuts in Windows and Internet Explorer might also be of interest. There are sections on the importance of keeping your computer cool, compressing data and methods for speeding up your computer.

Although the marketing of this book gives the impression it is for Windows newbies (with the liberal inclusion of the Monkey motif throughout), it really is not for someone new to the Windows environment. A few readers may want to drill down into the Me environment, but most of us just want the basics under our belt - and this book doesn't cover that material.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
