NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Prolific technology writer David Pogue discusses his new book, "Pogue's Basics: Life Essential Tips and Shortcuts (That No One Bothers to Tell You) for Simplifying the Technology in Your Life.'
"On every car on the fuel gauge there is a little arrow pointing to the side of the car where your gas tank is located," said Pogue.
It's only one of the few shortcuts Pogue 'reveals' in his book.
Have trouble reading the book because you don't have your glasses? Try the pinhole camera effect.
"Make a tiny hole with your hand and now you can read through it again. You are blocking out the cone of light coming in straight," said Pogue.
