Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

I owe a great deal of thanks to the people and products that have inspired me in the world of consumer gadgets—the executives and media relations contacts, some old friends and some new acquaintances, who have expressed interest and enthusiasm for this project and have provided trial devices for review.

In particular, I’d like to thank (in alphabetical order by company) Michael Merrick and Terry Sullivan (General Motors); May Baccari, Maureen Farley, Eric Horvitz, and Peter Wootton (Microsoft); Caroline Leigh (NCR); Meredith Gordon and Amy Podurgiel (Nikon); Keith Nowak (Nokia); Carla Vallone (Segway); and Nancy Sherrer and Cindy Voss (Sprint PCS).

I’d like to thank Jim Boyd, Executive Editor at Financial Times Prentice Hall, for his interest in bringing this idea to fruition and for his wise advice and support every step of the way. I’d also like to thank Talar Boorujy, Scott Carter, Gail Cocker-Bogusz, Nick Radhuber, and Jerry Votta for their great work on the production side.

Finally, I’d like to thank my wife, Michele, and my sons, Andrew and David, for their patience with me and for allowing me to take family time on evenings and weekends in order to put this book together. Without your encouragement and support, this book would not have been possible.

Readers who would like to correspond with the author can contact him at ndevans@hotmail.com.
