    Super fast SSDs are the future.

    But you can get yours today.

    Are you still using a hard drive? SSDs are a very fast form of computer storage that are soon likely to replace hard drives. Many computers are now offered with SSDs as "build-to-order" options. You can also greatly enhance the performance of your existing computer by installing one of these.

    To Click or Not To Click?

    The Dilemma of URL Spoofing

    We have became accustomed to emails, which look just like web pages, and have graphics and links to web sites. These links (known as URLs) can be forged, sending you to a different website than the one represented. A fraudulent destination website waits for you to enter your account information and password, and then gain illegal access. The safest way to treat these links is NOT to click on them. (If needed, you can often go to a website manually, ensuring its legitimacy.)

    Updates or Upgrades?

    What's the difference?

    The software on your computer is constantly changing. "System Updates" are usually downloaded and installed "behind the scenes" to fix incompatibilities, problems, and vulnerabilities. Such updates are also available for many of your purchased programs, to keep them performing well, and securely. Updates are almost always free and greatly encouraged. On the other hand, upgrades are rarely free, and advertise new features and benefits. Sometimes they introduce new incompatibilities (with existing items) and therefore should be carefully evaluated before proceeding.
