Tech Lolz: How to avoid being tech-support for your family?

tech supportI'm not saying that tech support is a bad job. I have been doing it for years and it is a pretty funny and rewarding job. However, when you become tech-support for your family, well, then all hell breaks loose. Remember that uncle who was calling you? "Hey JD, I was the millionth user on a website and won something but I can't see what since my computer won't do anything now!". We've all been there! But is there anything that we can do to avoid this situation in the future? Well, now I'm just wishful-thinking. Is there any way to have this situation occur less and less in the future? Yes, there is, and I and other people will be sharing some tips.

Google Chrome 64-bit - Is It Better Than The 32-bit Version?

Google ChromeA few weeks ago, Google released the 64-bit version of the popular Chrome browser and promised increased stability, security, and speed.

Tech Lolz: Cats Taking Over the World, But Not My Keyboard!

keyboardFor those of you who are blessed enough to own a feline, you are well-aware of their intent to make you as uncomfortable as possible in your daily routines. Needless to say that because of their cuteness, you tend to allow their mischievous behavior and worse, get used to it. Well, my fellow friends, it is time we take back what is ours. It's going to be a long process, and, most likely, we will not win, but God-damn-it, I will not stand here with my arms crossed, while my cat makes a mess out of this articleksjdngffklrddgjy634567uh. Point taken, cat!

Tech Lolz: Is This a Keyboard or a Toaster? Or Maybe Both?

hardwareHello there! You all know the classic question: "to be or not to be?". Adapting it to our modern times, we could transform it into: "to buy or not to buy?". I'm sure that all of us have lived that moment when we could afford either object A or object B but not both. So we were in the difficult situation of choosing between them. Now, if any of you are like me or like Sheldon (remember the Big Bang Theory?), this task is nearly impossible. But, luckily for us, Microsoft has thought of everything: from operating systems to toasters. Yes, you read right. I said toasters. And this brings me to today's topic. Sit back and enjoy, it's gonna be a fun ride! :)
