Eric has written a little on a large number of topics and issues relating to modern technology and the way we use it. I was concerned that as I am computer literate and try to keep up to date with all the new technology that I would not find much to interest me in this book. I was wrong because there is something there for everyone. There are a few difficulties for a reader living in the UK as some of the sites such as Hula do not stream outside the USA. My personal experience with Netflix has also been problematical when travelling as I could not use them in France for example. I do not know if this applies to a USA user travelling in France. I found that Eric was very generous with his links to sites and they all seem to work well. It is often frustrating to click on a link and find it does not work. He also has some good illustrations of the various plugs and cables. He has dealt well with the use of speakers and surround sound to enhance the listening experience when watching films on the TV.

Nicely quirky, enjoyable read, and a bit of a page-turner. I learned a lot without feeling it was a chore at all. Answers the "what on earth do I need to buy?" questions.

A must-read for anyone who isn’t a walking technology encyclopedia 7 Jan. 2014
By Nathaniel LaClaire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What’s the difference between a Kindle, a Nook, and an iPad? Can I use my mobile phone overseas? Why wouldn’t I want to use an LED lamp? How many speakers do I need in my home theater? What’s the cloud? These are just a few of the myriad of questions that Eric Taub answers in his new book, Does This Plug into That?: Simplify Your Electronic Life. Taub, a leading technology consultant and New York Times consumer technology writer, uses a question and answer format to demystify modern technology for those who want to make the most of it but don’t know (and don’t care) what WPA-PSK means.

First, I should add a disclaimer: I’m a geek and I talk geek-speak fluently. Having said that, I’ll also mention that I’ve considered maybe upgrading from my old TV to an HDTV someday (mine no longer receives broadcast signals, in case you’re wondering), but while the cost of them keeps going down, the educational prerequisites for purchasing one keep increasing.

That’s why I was so excited to see this book and I was not disappointed. Taub does a beautiful job delivering on the promise in this book’s title. The book is divided into 22 chapters covering everything from computers and printers, to TVs, to lightbulbs, to car electronics, and so much more. There’s even a chapter entitled “Should I Get Rid of My Landline Phone?”

He answered every question I ever had about HDTVs and even some I hadn’t yet come up with and all in a way that didn’t make me feel stupid – just newly enlightened. I also learned a ton about a lot of other things. That’s right: I, the geek, learned a ton.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who isn’t a walking technology encyclopedia. Go buy it today. You will not be sorry.

it's so easy 18 Jan. 2014
By Ken W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am probably your average computer/technology user -- I know enough to muddle through, but I'm no techno geek. The wonderful thing about this book is, it makes everything SO EASY to understand. It's quite comprehensive: It covers every electronic medium, from computers to TVs to phones, and everything in between. It's not intended to be a fix-it manual, but rather to answer your real questions -- the many, many questions about what to buy and not buy, what to look for, what all this stuff does. Taub's talent is to explain everything in a very simple way and make it quite accessible. It's a terrific and much needed guide, and clarified a lot of things for me.

Very well written and informative. Non-techies need all the help we can get, and this provides the answers to so many basic questions.
I look forward to meeting the author some day and discussing the next level of problems with him.

I can't say I'm now an expert, but thanks to this book my son won't be bothered day and night by my phone calls begging for tech help. Very easy to understand and proving invaluable.
