8 Of The Biggest Geeks On Twitter (Who Just Happen To Be Girls)

Geekdom has long been perceived as the domain of men, with teenage boys who are fascinated by technology and Star Wars becoming grown adults who are obsessed with technology and Star Wars.

Clean Up Your Facebook News Feed With Social Fixer Filtering [Weekly Facebook Tips]

Facebook has become a one size fits all social networking platform. The typical News Feed is filled with randomly mixed updates from friends, family, colleagues, and various pages.

Should I Put My PC To Sleep Or Leave It On & Save The World?

Technology Explained

Should I Put My PC To Sleep Or Leave It On & Save The World?

Most people put their PCs to sleep, hibernate them, or turn them off when they’re not in-use. However, you can also choose to run your PC 24/7, contributing your PC’s processing power to distributed computing projects. With these projects, your PC can help fight cancer, test climate change models, or even search for alien life. However, computers use power when they’re on, and they use more power when their CPUs (or GPUs) are going full-throttle.
