Pogue’s Basics: Essential Tips and Shortcuts (That No One Bothers to Tell You) for Simplifying the Technology in Your Life 
by David Pogue
Paperback – 1 August 2015
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?
When David Pogue gave this kind of advice in the New York Times, his columns were consistently the most e-mailed of the week. 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. A layflat format makes this the perfect reference book that you can turn to time and time again to pick up more helpful cheats for all your devices. 
At last, you can lose the nagging, insecure feeling that you’re not the master of your own gadgets; the tech tips in Pogue’s Basics are all you need to get by… the shortcuts to a happier technological life.
