Speeding Up Your Computer

Computers cost a lot of money, so it is logical that we want them to work fast. The more money we spend on them, the faster we want them to work. If so your computer is sluggish, here is what you can do:

  • Loose cables, not properly attached RAM, or other computer components can make your computer unstable. You can reattach the cables, RAM, and clean any dust from your PC.
  • Too many programs running at startup can be a reason for a computer to slow down. This happens when you install many programs, and you do not really observe whether they start at startup. After some time, you have so many programs loading, that it can drastically reduce performance and increase boot time. You can switch off some programs which you do not need, by going to Start-> Run -> Writing “msconfig” -> clicking OK, and deselecting some programs from the startup tab.
  • Buying new components. That costs money, and depends if you want to buy new components every year or two years. In my opinion, it is better to first check what you can do about your sluggish computer without spending any money on it before you actually start spending your money. Buying new parts should be your last resort.

Quickly Fill Out Forms

AutoComplete is a quite useful tool in Firefox that allows your browser to remember what you enter in forms. For example, you may want Firefox to remember your personal details such as name, address and email, so that you do not have to type it each time. This can save you a lot of time, especially if you fill out various forms on a daily basis. This feature is great and I use it a lot, but there are also some potential problems. One of them is when you misspell some important information such as email. Next time when you will try to enter your email, Firefox will suggest this misspelled email. That is why when you make such a mistake it is important to erase the saved form data.

You can do that by going to Tools -> Options -> Privacy and clicking Clear Now. Just make sure you indicate what you want to clear. Of course, if you had any other information stored, it will also be deleted. That is why you should only use this feature when you are absolutely certain you want to do it. You should be especially careful if you have been using Firefox for many months, and possibly have a lot of personal details stored. Once you press Clear Now, all of them will be lost. Anyway, I believe that AutoComplete is a very useful feature, and I recommend that you take advantage out of it.

Usefulness of the Internet

What is great about the Internet is that it can be used for a variety of purposes. People connect to the Internet to browse millions of different sites, but overall some types of sites are more popular than others.

-The most popular websites are search engines. They allow us to find what we are looking for. They will probably remain to be the most popular for quite some time.
-Many people like visiting social websites that offer interaction between people. This includes chat websites and social networking websites.
-Sites that allow us to downloading files can be useful. A good example are sites dedicated to Rapidshare.
-Web portals offering news are something that most people visit. Reading news on such websites does not cost anything and that is why so many people like doing it.
-Websites hosting various games are also popular. They allow players to be entertained and to have some fun.
-Sites featuring useful information in a form of articles or videos are also being visited by many people.

Over Billion Dollars and Video Games

If you are wondering what video games have to do with over a billion dollars, then let me tell you that this is the amount of money that consumers spend on video games during a month. During one month it was $1.23 billion and this seems like a very high amount considering that the price of more essential items like food grew rapidly. I think that this clearly shows that people need entertainment and time for having fun, as much as they need other products, which are often considered to be a higher priority among many households. One of the reasons that Americans spent some much on video games is due to consoles and that there are recently many good games coming out.

Widgets

If you are a webmaster, then you were probably tempted a few times to put some widgets on your site. Widgets can be often useful elements on a website and that is why many people embed them. Nonetheless, some webmasters exaggerated with the number of widgets and they include dozens of various widgets on their sidebar. While it may sound like a lot of fun, it can drastically reduce the loading time of webpages. This might be especially a problem if the site does not have reliable hosting. Before you embed too many elements on your pages, please make sure that they are actually needed and that they will not slow down your site.

Browsing Websites

If you are anything like me you might spend a lot of time visiting various websites. Have you ever been in a situation where your Google search led you to a website but after entering this website you noticed loads of information and did not know where to look for specific knowledge that you so desired? By activating the search option in Internet Explorer you can easily find on a website what you are looking for. Here is how you can do it:

From the top bar choose “Edit” and then go to “Find” or just press Ctrl+F. This will open a small window for you. In this window type a word or words that you are looking for. Press “Find Next”. You will be automatically directed to a place where the desired word or words are located. Repeat the process whenever it is necessary.

I have to admit that this feature is one of my favorites and once you learn to use it effectively, it will save you a lot of time.

Computer Gaming

Anyone who plays computer games is often wondering whether he will benefit more from owning a desktop or laptop. There are advantage sand disadvantages of each type of PC, so sometimes it is hard to decide. I hope that taking a look at the following list will make it easier for you to make up your mind.

-When it comes to portability laptops have an advantage. Desktop towers are often heavy and bulky so it is not easy to transport a desktop that easily. That is why some decide on using laptops.
-Upgrading, on the other hand, is a lot easier with desktops. Desktop components are cheaper and are a lot easier to install. Most laptops do not even allow upgrading for parts like hard drives and graphics cards.
-Laptops are not only more portable but also smaller. Because they are also small it allows you to put them even on a small desk. If someone is a college students, then he might not have space for a traditional desktop.
-Price is also an important factor and desktop have an advantage here. Desktops are simply less expensive.
