Marc-Anthony Arena was born in the 80s, back when technology was hopeful. He attended the all-boys McQuaid Jesuit High School, and then the mostly-boys Rochester Institute of Technology, where he majored in Business Management with concentrations in Entrepreneurship, Spanish, and Russian. There, he co-founded a juice bar and a local chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Marc has worked in the IT industry since 2000, and is currently President and Founder of both Teknosophy, LLC, and Streamplicity. He is also the host of "The Computer Exorcist Show" on WYSL Radio, available on AM, FM, and online. In his free time, he enjoys funny Internet videos, roadtrips down the Eastern Seaboard, cigars, Tai Chi, foreign languages, buying old convertibles, and paying dearly for their repairs. By the time you read this, he should have retired to the Italian countryside. There, he'll eat lamb every day, and never have to touch another computer again.

Das Dateiformat ePUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
