By Hoyt Barber John Wiley & Sons, Inc. | English | 291 pages | PDF | 1.166 KB | Download | Password: swiss Switzerland. The word itself conjures up a multitude of images, nearly all quite positive and most virtually in the realm of the magical, mythical, and too good to be true. And, really, is there any other single place on this increasingly sordid planet whose reality is so close to fantasy, and maybe even perfect? Switzerland is a breath-taking wonderland of majestic Alps vaulting to the sky, charming villages nestled down deep in the valleys, pristine lakes of profound clarity, and cities of such cleanliness, beauty, and order that it seems like some deity designed and built them.

But from the standpoint of networking and other communications, the iPad is like a giant iPod touch with some iPhone features thrown in, too.
