Extend the life of your PC

Three steps to extend the life of your PC

While the PC is no longer as expensive as it once was, we are still a long ways away from throwaway computers. In most cases, a PC purchase is a multi-year investment, which is extended by the level of technology included in most modern processors. With modern programs operating fine on older PCs and many services moving to the cloud, upkeep on aging systems becomes a top priority.

RAM Disk Introduction

RAM Disk: An introduction

As consumers strive to find the most efficient ways to make the most of the hardware already installed on a PC, many come to the point where the choice of upgrading their hard drive to an SSD is in front of them. For many, the sticker shock can be a big deterrent even as the price-per-GB of quality SSDs has dropped into the sub-$0.50-per-GB range. For those users, and the consumers who have yet to discover other alternatives, there is also the option of a RAM Disk.

Upgrade Windows XP Soon

Three reasons to upgrade from Windows XP now

Windows XP has been a stalwart and stable platform for PCs nearly a decade now and for that reason, among others, many users refuse to upgrade. Businesses and individual users alike are more than happy to forgo the perceived problems that come with a new operating system and considering the mess that was Vista’s initial offering and the lackluster reception of Windows 8. However, time has run out on the aging operating system now that Microsoft has pulled the plug on XP support.

Secure Cloud Storage

Cloud security: Three top secure cloud services

Most people are aware of the largest cloud storage providers, like DropBox and Google Drive, but many are unaware of the limited security that their files have while hosted by these companies. If security is a primary concern for web-based storage, then consider moving to one of the three services we profile here. Each provide multiple layers of security for their cloud based storage solutions and may be the right choice for your data storage needs.

Cleanliness

Spring Cleaning: How to clean your computer

Today’s technology is often shown as omnipresent, invasive, dependable, and clean. Since the late 50s, technology and the future have been presented to us with the sheen of sleek white, shiny surfaces and clean metallic lines. Even our current technology clings to the antiquated ideal of sleekness, simplicity, and style that never once shows an ounce or spec of dirt, grime, or wear. While your pc’s keyboard is far removed from surfaces that we consider ultra-clean, like hospitals, doctor’s offices, and data recovery labs, there is no reason that your personal technology can’t be as clean, and healthy, as possible.

Network-Attached Storage

Use Network-Attached Storage for extra security

The right Network-Attached Storage (NAS) solution will provide benefits beyond simple external network storage. A NAS is a network appliance that connects storage drives, either hard drives or SSDs, into your home network without connecting directly to a computer. Advanced NAS systems can include support for built-in encryption, tools and interfaces that allow remote access, and advanced security features like home camera monitoring systems.
