Not Just Any Name: Tips For Picking Good Names For Your Devices

Assigning names to devices is a small action that has very few real consequences. Whether the name of your latest computer peripheral stays as “CORSAIR 829495” or changes to “Bingo” has no effect on the device’s performance. But on a personal level, naming your devices properly can have lasting implications for your productivity, organization, or just plain enjoyment. I bet you’ve rarely thought of device names as important.

Can A Windows RT Tablet Replace My Laptop?

Windows RT is not anything like a regular windows install – It looks like Windows 8, but it’s really very different. Most notably, you can’t install regular Windows applications on it. You can only install apps from the Windows Store, similar to using an iPad or Android tablet. That’s not to say that working from your Windows RT tablet is impossible, though. You may be surprised.

Why This Technology Blogger Does Not Own a Smartphone [Opinion]

I make my entire living writing about technology, explaining how to use software and interviewing people who create high-tech toys. I should be an early adopter – and sometimes I am. But when it comes to smartphones I can’t bring myself to join the 21st century.

Master FTP File Transfers On All Of Your Sites With FileZilla

A large number of FTP clients of old had hiccups when it came to large file transfers. The apps experienced the usual timeouts that you would expect when the computer sits there for 15 to 30 minutes, transferring massive files. More recently, noticing so many positive reviews around the web for FileZila, I decided to take a closer look at what the latest iteration of the software had to offer. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.
