Oct. 29, 2012 - PRLog -- With over 3 million of the newest iPads sold since its launch on March 16th, Apple has created one of the latest popular consumer electronic gadgets in history. iPad and iPad mini owners think the only issue with this techno marvel is the transition for users traditionally “tethered to their personal computers to tablet devices.” The millions of new iPad owners are left to figure out the capabilities their iPads represent and the programs that complement them.

How do you do type a document? How do watch my videos? What about data storage? Most of us, sadly, will only use a fraction of the features the iPad has, and leaves us thinking, “Should I really spend the cash to buy a tablet?”

Andrea Eldridge, industry leading tech guru, CEO of Nerds On Call, and mother of two, decided to write the definitive book to help the new iPad user. Her latest book iPad for PC Users ( is now available at

Andrea’s goal is to teach users how to use technology easily and comfortably. The book was written for the everyday and novice user who is tired of feeling like they are refugees left floating in a sea of technology. Anticipating concerns that might arise as you consider the purchase of an iPad, Eldridge leads readers through an easy “how to” of the advantages and disadvantages, which she characterizes as “The Good” and “The Challenging” and finally a third category: “The (Kind of) Ugly.”

Along the way, she provides helpful information on a wide range of topics, including how to navigate on an iPad, how to print documents and how to be productive when you’re working on a tablet. “It’s a problem that nearly every user has, as you leave the store with your shiny new iPad, sadly the novelty and confidence wears off as you try to navigate the new touch screen tablet. You quickly realize that your iPad’s user interface (your trusty mouse and keyboard are gone) is completely different than your old desktop PC,” says Andrea.

“I think what makes this book so different from the myriad of other how to books on the topic of tech is that it was written by an average user,” says Eldridge. “I know I’m supposed to be swayed to want to side with the Macs, but the reality is, I’m a PC. So let me assure you that if I can adopt an Apple iPad into my Windows world and learn to love it, you can too.
