There is also a reference section for finding the components you need and to further explore a topic. Included is a glossary of technical definitions for terms and abbreviations. For the more technically inclined, there are sections interspersed all throughout the chapters that provide ancillary information on the topic being discussed. Go to these Sidebars to learn more about the technology or feature. For those that work on the road, replicating your home or work office into a mobile office in the past has been difficult and frustrating to achieve because you could not accomplish all the same features and functions that are required to perform your job. As time has progressed, technology and people's inventiveness have continued to progress and seems to be progressing in an increasing geometric fashion. Obviously, this is good news for the mobile worker or mobile entrepreneur. Today, as of the writing of this book, the technology is available to match the performance and functionally of a brick and mortar establishment.
