Who doesn’t want a faster PC?
Well, it’s easier than you think.
Most of the time, the way we use our puters is what slows them down.
By making a few minor adjustments to how you work, you can get the most bang from your existing PC – without forking over bucks for a new one!

We all know what happens when your puter gets all dusty inside: it gets noisy!
Cooling fans start spinning like crazy. If things get bad enough, your CPU can even overheat, halting the system.
To avoid this mayhem, you should dust inside your computer twice a year.
But what to use? Dishwasher? Washing machine? Garden hose? Hydrochloric acid?

You know the drill: You’ve got an image on your puter. You print it.
It’s either really small, or it’s big enough, but really blocky and nasty looking.
So what gives?

If you’ve read any reviews recently about phones, tablets, and other gizmos, you’ve probably come across a lot of talk of PPI (Pixels Per Inch) and “Retina” screens.
In short, the number of pixels crammed into a device’s screen seems to be uber-important to which gizmos get the best reviews.
But hang on a minute… Just what do these numbers mean?
Does it really matter that much?
