COMPUTER BEING INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICES
Both drives do the same job which is store your personal files such as songs, videos, pictures, documents and applications but they have their own unique differences that are outlined below:
Hard Disk Drives are much cheaper than SDDs as they differ in functionality and many other areas outlined in the subsections below. They will remain cheaper as hard drives use traditional old school technology with a read/write arm. SDD, in comparison, has a bit more sophisticated technology embedded to it, thus they cost more.
The advantage of SSD over HDD in this aspect is as clear as day. It takes most of the devices with SSD just seconds to boot and get up to speed with various operational tasks such as downloading, transferring files or running applications/softwares. In contrast, HDDs are much slower in comparison and will take more time to boot and gain full speed. Even though this might not make a huge difference for an average user, it might just change things around for expert users or small business owners.

Ofcom's annual communications market report, gave us recently some very interesting data on the frequency that the UK population interacts with the Internet.
This at a time that 71%of adults in the UK owns a smartphone.
A sample of 2,500 people was used revealing that a large portion of the public would like to spend less time online or indeed have a digital detox.
Some very interesting statistics are:

There is often the question to individuals and businesses whether it is worth paying for Internet Security software. There is an abundance of free antivirus software out there with unlimited updates which makes you wonder.
The most basic levels of antivirus products are free and paid antivirus, suites and premium suites, As you move up levels you usually get more features such as parental controls, mail filters, identity theft protection, device location, firewalls and system performance tools. But to determine whether a paid subscription is worth it, we offer a comparison below:
AdvantagesFreeUnlimited malware signature updates which are installed automaticallyMost offer web browser add-onsOffer same user interface as paid versionsThe detection rates are very similar to paid versionsThey are faster than their paid counterparts hence are not as resource demanding
Over the past couple of years the average person has relied more and more on the Internet, whether it's through the use of smartphones for social communication or the use of the Internet for researching information.
"The Internet of Things" (IOT) is a concept, connecting all of your everyday network enabled devices such as phones, washing machines, coffee machines, TV's etc. and creates a network, which is then able to feed the user back with useful information, aiming to make life easier.
So you might ask yourself how does "The Internet of Things" impact me?
Well, looking at the broader picture, this concept can change an individual's working patterns by providing information as to when is one most or least productive.
Hence if you know that you are most productive during certain hours of the day, you can isolate your activities and patterns then so that you can identify how to make your remaining working hours as productive as those.
We regularly come across stories of people whose cloud accounts have been hacked and their personal data leaked all over the Internet.
Most of these people could never imagine of how easy it would be for their data to be accessed from a web browser and most of the time the reason that they were vulnerable was that they were not following basic rules or thought that hacking could never happen to them.
Use strong passwords
We are sure you have heard that before and we do understand that it is challenging to setup complex password for each of your accounts and then remember them.
However, below you can see an example of how easy it can be to crack a simple password with a brute-force algorithm.
This is something we are being asked on a daily basis and the answer requires you to consider a number of parameters.
In general if you are happy with your PC's performance there is obviously no compelling need to make any changes. However to ask this question you are probably not happy and long for a system that will be fast and will support the latest software.
But let's see at some questions and answers that will help you make the decision between upgrading and purchasing a new computer.
How do you intend to use your computer?
If your intended use is browsing the web and checking your emails, upgrading your hard drive to an SSD and/or upgrading your RAM should be a more than enough upgrade, provided that your computer is not more than 5-6 years old.
It is estimated that 80% of computer users do not know how to use the most common keyboard shortcuts.
Using keyboard shortcuts not only saves time but makes you far more productive.
Hence we drafted a list of the most useful keyboard shortcuts for Windows and Mac.
To start with the main key for keyboard shortcuts in Windows is CTRL (Control) and ⌘ (Command) for Mac.
COPY : Either copying an entire file or selecting and copying text in a document or in a webpage, this is one of the most common shortcuts.
IBM releases quantum computing.
Indeed the chip giant has established in New York a research laboratory with a five-qubit quantum computer accessible from the cloud platform to the masses.
It is the first time that a quantum computer is available to others. That allows developing the research beyond research centres and universities through this experience called IBM Quantum Experience.
Currently the development seems to be not fully completed but users can already run algorithms and experiments by working with their own qubits.
Individuals can now explore new things with quantum computing.
(MS16-023 Security patch)
Important news for all the windows 10 users:
The tech giant's is working on a future update regarding Microsoft Internet Explorer. On a previous statement the company stated that this security update resolves internal vulnerabilities when using Explorer. In most severe cases Microsoft further stated that third party individuals can have access to internal remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer. The company pointed out that hackers who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same administrator rights as the current user therefore having full control over the affected device.
As the security risks are very high hackers could have access to some OS function such as install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
We like to point out that this security update is critical for all internet explorer users (Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9), & Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) on affected Windows clients, and Moderate for Internet Explorer 9 (IE 9), Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10), and Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) on affected Windows servers.
