2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.
Windows 8.1 continues the evolution of the most radical redesign in Microsoft's history. It combines the familiar Windows desktop with a new, touchscreen-friendly world of tiles and full-screen apps. Luckily, David Pogue is back to help you make sense of it-with humor, authority, and 500 illustrations.
The important stuff you need to know:
- What's new in 8.1. The update to 8.1 offers new apps, a universal Search, the return of the Start menu, and several zillion other nips and tucks.
- New features. Storage Spaces, Windows To Go, File Histories-if Microsoft wrote it, this book covers it.
- Security. Protect your PC from viruses, spyware, spam, sick hard drives, and out-of-control kids.
- The network. HomeGroups, connecting from the road, mail, Web, music streaming among PCs-this book has your network covered.
- The software. Media Center, Photo Gallery, Internet Explorer, speech recognition-this one authoritative, witty guide makes it all crystal clear. It's the book that should have been in the box.
