SKU: CCOMP Category:


Margo was afraid her computer would blow up — for real!

Paul was convinced he was too old to to cope with the latest changes on his computer.

Sara was afraid of losing forever anything she might keep on her computer.

His friend Martin was scammed by foreigners, and Mike was afraid of becoming a victim as well.

Liz was convinced that doing anything online would expose her private information, including her credit cards, to hackers.

Margo was also convinced that besides all those risks technology was just going to isolate her more from her friends.

With very good reasons, what Margo, Paul, Sara, Mike, and Liz all suffer from is a lack — even a crisis — of confidence when it comes to technology.

These are their stories; stories of overcoming their concerns, and the doors they opened as a result.

If those stories sound familiar; if you or someone you know suffers from a lack of confidence when it comes to computing, the Confident Computing will help you make sense of if all, and show you how you to can use technology safely, securely, and most importantly with confidence.
