Want to know if you should purchase that camera you have in mind? Need a good place for downloads? Or just want a good place for Tech News. Then CNET is a good site for you to go to and explore. The top of their webpage offers 4 selections in addition to a search bar and a "Home" icon. They are "Reviews" "News" "Downloads" and "Videos".For "Reviews", all sorts of tech products from computers, cameras to mp3 players are reviewed here. You can see how the product you are interested in compares to similar products. Many have a video review by one of CNET's experts. It is the largest part of the site generating per Wikipedia over 4,300 product and software reviews annually. Most of the traffic generated to the site is for its reviews.The "News" section has headlines and more details of Tech related news. The information can be very useful for your own technology. It includes articles about tech related business, wireless, green tech, blogs among other subjects. "Downloads" consists of about 500,000 software titles for download with both freeware and non freeware titles. You can download based upon operating system, type of software and price. There is probably some good software for your computer here and it certainly is worthwhile checking out.The "Video" section includes product videos and how to instructional videos. As a visual person, I have gotten some good tips here. One of the other features of this site is the ability to compare prices for a product you may be thinking of buying.All in all this is a good site for tech information particularly the reviews and downloads. There are discussion forums for asking questions and exchanging information as well. Like most forum sections you need to set up an account. Why not check it out and if it meets your needs include it as one of your bookmarks/favorites.Computer Concierge NY LLC, provides expert computer and technology services in the Bayside, NY area, Including Queens, Albertson, Bayside Hills, Bay Terrace, Bellrose, College Point, Douglaston, Floral Park, Flushing, Forest Hills, Great Neck, Jamaica Estates, Kew Gardens, Kings Point, Lake Success, Manhasset, Mineola, Munsey Park, New Hyde Park, North Hills, North Shore Towers, Oakland Gardens, Plandome, Rego Park, Roslyn, The Bay Club, Thomaston, University Gardens, Williston Park, Whitestone and Other Areas in the Bayside vicinity.
Some of you over the holidays received a computer for a gift. If you received a PC as opposed to a MAC you probably got a trial version of a program to secure your computer against viruses, spyware, etc. Once this trial period is up (usually after 30 days), you need to pay to renew this program. The cost of this can be as much as $80 per year.
If your computer is for personal use or you use it for a very small business, you do not need to pay for internet security. There is free security software that you can use instead. Some of it is good. Some not as good. Assuming that you keep your computer for 5 years, you are paying $400 to protect it that you can avoid spending. Save $$$. I use security software from a highly respected company. It is legal and not a pirated copy. Computer Concierge NY LLC can install this on your computer too. Given an $80 per year charge for security software once the trial period ends, my cost to you to install it will pay for itself in less then a year. If you expect to keep your computer 5 years, our cost to install will pay for itself several times over the life of your computer. Did I mention, the software is absolutely free?
Have a new computer and unsure how to set it up? There is more to setting up a computer than taking it out of the box and following the online instructions. Our costs for a basic computer set up can save you as much as $300 over the life of your computer assuming you are keeping it for 5 years. The set up includes the same free security software used on my computer. The $300 savings more than doubles the costs to set up your computer.
One other thing. A major consumer electronics retailer that sells and services computers will not tell you of this free software. If they install your computer, their costs to you will be higher than what we charge. They will not install this free software for you. They will likely try to sell you what you do not need. They have done it to friends and customers of mine. They tried to do it to me.
