PCMR Info #11: Thoroughly clean and disinfect tech that you need to touch. Regularly use Lysol/Clorox or similar cleaners to wipe down all devices, components, and other objects PCMR Info #12: What are Viruses/Malware? 𝐌𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐞 is malicious software. 𝐕𝐢𝐫𝐮𝐬 is a computer program that copies its code into other programs. 𝐀𝐝𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐞 is in-app advertising; sometimes is hostile to the computer. 𝐓𝐫𝐨𝐣𝐚𝐧 is malware disguised as an app. PCMR Info #13: You can use some TV screens as effective desktops -not all though. Subtle things in televisions can very easily mess up the output, so best to thoroughly check with reviewers what TVs work well as monitors beforehand. Many reviewers recommend TCL Roku. PCMR Info #14: Should you only have wireless keyboards, mice, and headphones? Good ones are naturally pricey, but wireless can fail at a mid-to-long-range distance. Great for an in-bed on-couch setup -always check the reviews first though. PCMR Info #15: How do I create a cool-looking tech-cave like in the Instagram pics without breaking bank? Two words: LED strips. Lighting and spacious cleanly organization make the difference. RGB-lit devices, RGB lightbulbs, and light-panels are pricier but help too. PCMR Info #16: What are the best headphones for you? Noise-cancelling for loud cars and planes, closed-back for recording and privacy of sound, open-back for comfort and more external-sounding audio, in-ear headphones/earbuds for mobile music players, and wireless if wanted. PCMR Info #17: How do you fix the issue of electronic lights being too bright at night? Cloths, blankets, and clothes can quickly cover up the immediate annoyance -just make sure they won't cause a fire. Black duct-tape is a sticky but effective long-term solution. PCMR Info #18: MO's tech industry made ~$41.6 billion in 2017 sales revenue. Missouri's tech sector employs 140,000+ people and pays $13 billion in annual wages, ranking in the top 10 states for future growth (2019). PCMR Info 19: What is the difference between SSD and HDD? SSD and HDD are Solid State Drive and Hard (Disk) Drive; they are your computer's long-term memory. SSD works faster than HDD, but you can get ~16 times more HDD per dollar spent on SSD. Good to have both. PCMR Info #20: How much RAM do you need? 4GB RAM is for bare bones applications. 8GB RAM is for standard browsing and app usage. 12-16GB RAM is for fancy Adobe-type programs, video editing, or gaming. 32GB+ RAM is for teleporting and time-traveling across the universe.
