Quick Start Tips

If you are like me, you love all the technological gadgets that are on the market, but you hate reading all the techno mumbo jumbo that comes in a neatly folded pamphlet in every box. Enter ZDNet’s Quick Start 2000 Guides. I don’t want to fawn, but this is the best thing since sliced bread for those of you who hate wading through tons of info before getting to the “fun” of your new toy.

The Quick Start Guides offer helpful hints for set up and troubleshooting. You’ll also find “Fun First Projects,” a list of accessories or add ons for your gadget (if they exist), as well as books and downloads (free and checked out by ZDNet) that will enhance your use.

From Hand Helds to MP3 Players, you’ll find basic and advanced information on them all.
