Steal This Computer Book 4.0 - Wallace Wang Cover Art

Steal This Computer Book 4.0

Steal This Computer Book 4.0 What They Won't Tell You About the Internet by Wallace Wang

If you thought hacking was just about mischief-makers hunched over computers in the basement, think again. As seasoned author Wallace Wang explains, hacking can also mean questioning the status quo, looking for your own truths and never accepting at face value anything authorities say or do. The completely revised fourth edition of this offbeat, non-technical book examines what hackers do, how they do it, and how you can protect yourself. Written in the same informative, irreverent, and entertaining style that made the first three editions hugely successful, Steal This Computer Book 4.0 will expand your mind and raise your eyebrows. New chapters discuss the hacker mentality, social engineering and lock picking, exploiting P2P file-sharing networks, and how people manipulate search engines and pop-up ads to obtain and use personal information. Wang also takes issue with the media for "hacking" the news and presenting the public with self-serving stories of questionable accuracy. Inside, you’ll discover: –How to manage and fight spam and spyware –How Trojan horse programs and rootkits work and how to defend against them –How hackers steal software and defeat copy-protection mechanisms –How to tell if your machine is being attacked and what you can do to protect it –Where the hackers are, how they probe a target and sneak into a computer, and what they do once they get inside –How corporations use hacker techniques to infect your computer and invade your privacy –How you can lock down your computer to protect your data and your personal information using free programs If you’ve ever logged onto a website, conducted an online transaction, sent or received email, used a networked computer or even watched the evening news, you may have already been tricked, tracked, hacked, and manipulated. As the saying goes, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you. And, as Wallace Wang reveals, they probably are.

The Digital Photography Book - Scott Kelby Cover Art

The Digital Photography Book

The Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby

Scott Kelby, the man who changed the ""digital darkroom"" forever with his groundbreaking, #1 bestselling, award-winning book The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, now tackles the most important side of digital photography--how to take pro-quality shots using the same tricks today's top digital pros use (and it's easier than you'd think). This entire book is written with a brilliant premise, and here’s how Scott describes it: ""If you and I were out on a shoot, and you asked me, 'Hey, how do I get this flower to be in focus, but I want the background out of focus?' I wouldn't stand there and give you a lecture about aperture, exposure, and depth of field. In real life, I'd just say, 'Get out your telephoto lens, set your f/stop to f/2.8, focus on the flower, and fire away.' You d say, 'OK,' and you'd get the shot. That's what this book is all about. A book of you and I shooting, and I answer the questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I've learned just like I would with a friend, without all the technical explanations and without all the techno-photo-speak."" This isn't a book of theory—it isn't full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts: this is a book of which button to push, which setting to use, when to use them, and nearly two hundred of the most closely guarded photographic ""tricks of the trade"" to get you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos with your digital camera every time you press the shutter button. Here's another thing that makes this book different: each page covers just one trick, just one single concept that makes your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you'll learn another pro setting, another pro tool, another pro trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. There's never been a book like it, and if you're tired of taking shots that look ""OK,"" and if you’re tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, ""Why don't my shots look like that?"" then this is the book for you.

Sicherheit im Internet wird immer wichtiger. Zunehmender Datenklau und -missbrauch persönlicher Benutzerdaten wie Fotos, Texte u. v. m. sind Sorgen, mit denen man sich beschäftigen muss. Doch kaum jemand kennt sich ganz genau aus, welche Maßnahmen dagegen wirklich greifen. Da ist guter Rat teuer und es ist unerlässlich, sich genau darüber zu informieren, damit alle persönlichen Daten, die sich im Internet befinden, auch 100% geschützt sind. Die iCloud von Apple ist kostenfrei und extrem nützlich, wenn es darum geht, zwischen einem Computer und einem iPhone bzw. iPad Informationen drahtlos auszutauschen. Lernen Sie alles über die iCloud und die damit verbundene Apple-ID. Mit nur wenigen Klicks ist der Dienst aktiviert und steht sofort zur Verfügung. So werden in Sekundenschnelle Termine, Fotos, To-do-Listen, Dokumente und vieles mehr zwischen allen beteiligten Geräten abgeglichen und werden sicher in der iCloud aufgehoben. Aus dem Inhalt: • Apple-ID: Über die Apple-ID erhalten Sie Zutritt zu den diversen Stores, wie iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store etc. Funktionen wie FaceTime, iMessage und iCloud werden dadurch erst möglich. • iCloud: Konfi gurieren Sie Ihren Windows-PC, Mac, iPhone und iPad für den drahtlosen Datenaustausch über iCloud. Nutzen Sie das Web-Interface, um von überall auf Ihre Daten zuzugreifen. • iTunes und iCloud: Verwalten Sie Ihre Einkäufe einfach und unkompliziert mit iTunes auf dem Mac oder PC. • iTunes Match und Apple Music: Noch nie war es so einfach, seine Lieblingsmusik überall mit dabei zu haben. Aktuell für iOS 9 und OS X El Capitan!

Apple-ID für Mac, iPhone und iPad

Apple-ID für Mac, iPhone und iPad Ein Account, viele Funktionen (aktuell zu OS X Mavericks und iOS 7) by Johann Szierbeck

Aktualisiert für iOS 7 und OS X Mavericks! Vor einigen Jahren war alles ganz einfach: Man beschaffte sich einen iTunes-Account, um im iTunes Store Musik damit erwerben zu können. Aus diesem Account ist nun mittlerweile die sogenannten Apple-ID geworden. Mit dieser kann nach wie vor im iTunes Store eingekauft werden. Dort hat sich das Angebot mittlerweile auf Filme, Apps für iPhone bzw. iPad, digitale Bücher (E-Books) etc. ausgeweitet. Doch eine Apple-ID kann noch viel mehr: Wer ein iPhone, iPad oder einen iPod touch besitzt, der kann eine ganze Reihe von Zusatznutzen verwenden: – FaceTime – iMessage – iCloud – Mein iPhone suchen – Freunde – etc. Aber auch am Mac kann die Apple-ID für allerlei Funktionen herangezogen werden: – FaceTime – Mac App Store – iTunes Store – Meinen Mac suchen – Kennwort zurücksetzen – iCloud – etc. Dieses E-Book zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie eine Apple-ID optimal einrichten und diese an den eben genannten Stellen zum Einsatz bringen. Und haben Sie mal das Kennwort der Apple-ID vergessen – kein Problem: iForgot dient dem Zurücksetzen des Passwortes.

Design Is a Job - Mike Monteiro Cover Art

Design Is a Job

Design Is a Job by Mike Monteiro

Co-founder of Mule Design and raconteur Mike Monteiro wants to help you do your job better. From contracts to selling design, from working with clients to working with each other, this brief book is packed with knowledge you can’t afford not to know. "This book will teach you how to be part of a service industry without becoming a servant." —ERIK SPIEKERMANN "Running a design shop is hard.

Tubes - Andrew Blum Cover Art


Tubes A Journey to the Center of the Internet by Andrew Blum

“Andrew Blum plunges into the unseen but real ether of the Internet in a journey both compelling and profound….You will never open an email in quite the same way again.” —Tom Vanderbilt, New York Times bestselling author of Traffic When your Internet cable leaves your living room, where does it go? Almost everything about our day-to-day lives—and the broader scheme of human culture—can be found on the Internet. But what is it physically? And where is it really? Our mental map of the network is as blank as the map of the ocean that Columbus carried on his first Atlantic voyage. The Internet, its material nuts and bolts, is an unexplored territory. Until now. In Tubes, journalist Andrew Blum goes inside the Internet's physical infrastructure and flips on the lights, revealing an utterly fresh look at the online world we think we know. It is a shockingly tactile realm of unmarked compounds, populated by a special caste of engineer who pieces together our networks by hand; where glass fibers pulse with light and creaky telegraph buildings, tortuously rewired, become communication hubs once again. From the room in Los Angeles where the Internet first flickered to life to the caverns beneath Manhattan where new fiber-optic cable is buried; from the coast of Portugal, where a ten-thousand-mile undersea cable just two thumbs wide connects Europe and Africa, to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, where Google, Microsoft, and Facebook have built monumental data centers—Blum chronicles the dramatic story of the Internet's development, explains how it all works, and takes the first-ever in-depth look inside its hidden monuments. This is a book about real places on the map: their sounds and smells, their storied pasts, their physical details, and the people who live there. For all the talk of the "placelessness" of our digital age, the Internet is as fixed in real, physical spaces as the railroad or telephone. You can map it and touch it, and you can visit it. Is the Internet in fact "a series of tubes" as Ted Stevens, the late senator from Alaska, once famously described it? How can we know the Internet's possibilities if we don't know its parts? Like Tracy Kidder's classic The Soul of a New Machine or Tom Vanderbilt's recent bestseller Traffic, Tubes combines on-the-ground reporting and lucid explanation into an engaging, mind-bending narrative to help us understand the physical world that underlies our digital lives.


Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now - Jaron Lanier Cover Art

Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now

Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now by Jaron Lanier

AS SEEN IN THE NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY THE SOCIAL DILEMMA A WIRED " ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOK" A FINANCIAL TIMES BEST BOOK "THE CONSCIENCE OF SILICON VALLEY"- GQ “Profound . . . Lanier shows the tactical value of appealing to the conscience of the individual. In the face of his earnest argument, I felt a piercing shame about my own presence on Facebook. I heeded his plea and deleted my account.” - Franklin Foer, The New York Times Book Review “Mixes prophetic wisdom with a simple practicality . . . Essential reading.” - The New York Times (Summer Reading Preview) You might have trouble imagining life without your social media accounts, but virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier insists that we’re better off without them. In Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now , Lanier, who participates in no social media, offers powerful and personal reasons for all of us to leave these dangerous online platforms. Lanier’s reasons for freeing ourselves from social media’s poisonous grip include its tendency to bring out the worst in us, to make politics terrifying, to trick us with illusions of popularity and success, to twist our relationship with the truth, to disconnect us from other people even as we are more “connected” than ever, to rob us of our free will with relentless targeted ads. How can we remain autonomous in a world where we are under continual surveillance and are constantly being prodded by algorithms run by some of the richest corporations in history that have no way of making money other than being paid to manipulate our behavior? How could the benefits of social media possibly outweigh the catastrophic losses to our personal dignity, happiness, and freedom? Lanier remains a tech optimist, so while demonstrating the evil that rules social media business models today, he also envisions a humanistic setting for social networking that can direct us toward a richer and fuller way of living and connecting with our world.

The Art of Invisibility

The Art of Invisibility The World's Most Famous Hacker Teaches You How to Be Safe in the Age of Big Brother and Big Data by Kevin Mitnick

Real-world advice on how to be invisible online from "the FBI's most wanted hacker" ( Wired ). Be online without leaving a trace. Your every step online is being tracked and stored, and your identity literally stolen. Big companies and big governments want to know and exploit what you do, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand. In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick uses true-life stories to show exactly what is happening without your knowledge, teaching you "the art of invisibility" -- online and real-world tactics to protect you and your family, using easy step-by-step instructions. Reading this book, you will learn everything from password protection and smart Wi-Fi usage to advanced techniques designed to maximize your anonymity. Kevin Mitnick knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening. The world's most famous -- and formerly the US government's most wanted -- computer hacker, he has hacked into some of the country's most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now Mitnick is reformed and widely regarded as the expert on the subject of computer security. Invisibility isn't just for superheroes; privacy is a power you deserve and need in the age of Big Brother and Big Data. "Who better than Mitnick -- internationally wanted hacker turned Fortune 500 security consultant -- to teach you how to keep your data safe?" -- Esquire


We Are Anonymous - Parmy Olson Cover Art

We Are Anonymous

We Are Anonymous Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec, Anonymous, and the Global Cyber Insurgency by Parmy Olson

A thrilling, exclusive exposè of the hacker collectives Anonymous and LulzSec. We Are Anonymous is the first full account of how a loosely assembled group of hackers scattered across the globe formed a new kind of insurgency, seized headlines, and tortured the feds -- and the ultimate betrayal that would eventually bring them down. Parmy Olson goes behind the headlines and into the world of Anonymous and LulzSec with unprecedented access, drawing upon hundreds of conversations with the hackers themselves, including exclusive interviews with all six core members of LulzSec. In late 2010, thousands of hacktivists joined a mass digital assault on the websites of VISA, MasterCard, and PayPal to protest their treatment of WikiLeaks. Other targets were wide ranging: the websites of corporations from Sony Entertainment and Fox to the Vatican and the Church of Scientology were hacked, defaced, and embarrassed, and the message was that no one was safe. Thousands of user accounts from pornography websites were released, exposing government employees and military personnel. Although some attacks were perpetrated by masses of users who were rallied on the message boards of 4Chan, many others were masterminded by a small, tight-knit group of hackers who formed a splinter group of Anonymous called LulzSec. The legend of Anonymous and LulzSec grew in the wake of each ambitious hack. But how were they penetrating intricate corporate security systems? Were they anarchists or activists? Teams or lone wolves? A cabal of skilled hackers or a disorganized bunch of kids? We Are Anonymous delves deep into the internet's underbelly to tell the incredible full story of the global cyber insurgency movement, and its implications for the future of computer security.
