About the Author

John Eddy is a gadget hobbyist who infuriates his wife by continually getting new toys that need to be put somewhere. The majority of his career has been spent trying to ensure that normal, everyday people can successfully use their technological wonders. He has helped people both directly, through product support, and indirectly, by moderating online forums and newsgroups, thus ensuring a safe environment in which to seek answers.

After his long career in and around Microsoft, it’s ironic that John’s first book is about Google. He spends his days and nights in the Seattle area reading,watching too much TV and not enough movies, and enjoying quality time on his Xbox 360 and Wii with his far more techsavvy wife. Author of Special Edition Using Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, she shares his love of cooking and eating.Their food chronicles can be found at

Patricia DiGiacomo Eddy
is an accomplished technology author and mobile phone geek who isn’t nearly as infuriated with her husband’s love of gadgets as he might think. She has written several books, including Special Edition Using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, Special Edition Using Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, Absolute Beginner’s Guide to OneNote, and Access 2003: VBA Programmer’s Reference. Her day job is spent writing about email technology with a major software company. Her evenings are spent writing about a wide variety of other topics, including health and fitness, cooking, and Seattle culture. She enjoys a good game of Wii Tennis. Although she watches too much TV, she isn’t planning on changing that habit any time soon. Patricia and her husband recently completed their first half marathon and are looking forward to training for a full marathon as soon as this book is on the shelves.
