What's happening with technology?

Not a lot really, things are getting faster, smaller and cheaper... sort of. With Brexit looming and the Pound crashing, prices have been creeping up a little but overall you are getting more techno-junk for your money.

The IoT or Internet of Things is also getting interesting for us techno junkies. If you haven't the foggiest what the IoT techno babble is all about, it's a way of linking all sorts of things to the internet; like temperature sensors, light bulbs, radios and other stuff most people don't actually need linking to the Internet. Although I do have a few temperature sensors in my rabbit hutches and temperature controlled heater / cooler and CCTV cameras :)

One of the best things to come out of this technological advancement are things called SSD's or Solid State Hard drives. SSD's are a replacement for the old spinning disks which hold your precious data and where Windows lives (Other operating systems are available). SSD's are seven to ten times faster than the old Hard drives but are expensive per unit of storage.

While SSD's are a lot more expensive than the older style hard drives for the same storage space, the old Hard drives offer a massive amount of storage that most people don't need so upgrading to a smaller SSD does have some major advantages including improvements on your computers operating speed; which basically means your computer will boot a lot faster, like seven to ten times fast, open programs a lot faster, everything will be speedier, it's a win-win situation and you can always use your old Hard drive for extra storage and to backup your important data. If you have an older computer, seriously consider upgrading to an SSD drive, it will make your computer seem like new again.

Talking of backups... Please, please, please backup your data, your photos, videos, music, your homework... make sure you have at least two copies... If you need help and advice about backing up your precious data then give us a call or like our Facebook page and watch the upcoming tutorials on backing up your data.
