Forgotten Nintendo 64 classics

18/04/2017 Main

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my computer and electronics blog. I am going to assume that most of you are around my age, and grew up in the nineties. To us nineties kids, the Nintendo 64 will always hold a special place in our heart with its distinctive controls and plethora of new game ideas. Everyone remembers having to blow into the grey RAM cartridge while thier mean neighbor was busy trying to use toothpaste to fix the scratch in their Playstation disks. We have all played the bit hits, Super Smash Bros, Zelda, Super Mario Bros, Turok etc etc. But how many of these forgotten classic have you popped into your Nintendo 64? Read more

The Best Samsung Devices

13/04/2017 Main

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my computers and electronics blog. Samsung has been moving up in the world of electronic devices lately. Samsung laptops used to be some of the best medium tier laptops you could get. Now, they produce phones that are competing( and rather well) with Apple Iphones. Samsung tablets have also taken off, and some of the recent releases are able to play high end games at the same level as a high end desktop computer. I have myself a good collection of Samsung devices, thanks to my hobby of buying used electronics from http://www.used.forsale/australia/. Here are some of my favourite Samsung devices and what makes them so special. Read more

How to wipe a hard drive clean

Hey everyone, welcome to my computer and electronics blog. Have any of you ever sold or given away a computer? Even after reformatting the hard drive, it can feel a little bit worrisome handing something over that once held all you intimate details in it. You can delete all your files and folders, but they can be recovered from the recycling bin. You still need to wipe the hard drive clean, and that can be a difficult process. To do this without factory resetting the drive, try these hard drive eraser utilities. Read more

Set up your Gaming Station

Hey everyone, welcome back to my computers and electronics blog. I am super excited for you guys to join me today, as today I am going to be talking about how to set up a good gaming station for your gaming computer.

Must have Web Applications 

`Hey guys, hope you are all as well as I am, I am back today with another small post about computers for my electronics blog. This time I want to talk about Web Applications, specifically ones for your internet browser. I am a user of Google Chrome, so all my apps are downloaded from the google store and are 100% legit. I also refuse to pay for something on my browser so they are also 100% free, no charge, on the house. Some are more focused on an individual site, and other are general web safety tools. But overall I recommend that you install all of these apps onto your web browser. Read more

  1. Razer Nostromo- Razing the bar

Hey guys, whats going on I am back at you today doing another product review for my Computer and Consumer Electronics blog. I say consumer electronics especially today as I am talking about the Razer Nostromo keyboard, which has no real world uses really so it is strictly for gaming. I love the idea, as I am a PC gamer myself but this thing is just so weird. I recently found a cheap pre owned Razer Nostromo online and since then have been trying it out with different games and it is so weird I haven't found the best game for it yet, but there seems to be some bright spots for anything you want to play using this.

Hard Drive-ing

Welcome back folks.  Just another ramble from me in the realm of computers and electronics, in this case: storage.  This is quite fitting as I’ve made a big decision recently of finally moving over to the wonderful world of the WiFi hard drive (also known as the wireless hard drive), which by the way is a very viable alternative to the cloud.  Both offer excellent features and convenience, but differ somewhat in their appeal and benefit to each type of consumer and their corresponding needs – what’s good for one isn’t always good for all.  Read more

Computer Body Posture

15/05/2016 Main

I just wanted to use this blog post as a quick reminder about correct body posture while sitting at a computer desk. If, like me, you spend a large portion of your working day sat at a computer, you may suffer from a s tiff back or shoulders from time to time. This is due to the fact that our bodies are not naturally supposed to remain in a position such as this for as long a time as it does in the modern world. If you do not pay attention to maintaining correct posture at your computer, you may end up with long-term chronic problems such as back pain or sciatica. To avoid body strain while at your computer you should utilize a proper computer chair and ensure that it is at the correct height to the desk for your own height. You may also need to adjust the height of your monitor so that you are not straining your neck to look up or down at them. Your eyes should be level with the monitor, ensuring a neutral neck position. You should keep your back upright and shoulders back, keeping the spine straight. A lumbar roll can assist with this. You should use any rests provided such as wrist rests. Try performing stretches while you work to maintain circulation in your body. Take regular breaks from your computer and stretch your muscles to loosen them up. These are just a few hints and tips for ensuring correct body posture at your computer and avoiding a chronic musculoskeletal issues. Before to inform your manager and GP if you start to develop any symptoms that suggest you could be suffering as a result of your posture. Stay safe! Until next time folks! Read more
