How to Boost your RAM Performance with Smart Tweaks

computer slow downMost computers run slower after a period of use. The fact is, most of us don’t know exactly what causes the problem. Usually, software and other applications we install periodically, tend to run in the background and pull enough memory making Windows run slower or stuck in the middle of a task.

If you want to avoid these scenarios, you need to know a few tricks that will boost your PC performance and increase your productivity.

1. Remove Unnecessary Software

Sometimes we install software that we don’t need or we install multiple applications that all do the same thing. You may identify them and keep only the ones who are useful to you. The rest can go in the trashcan!

You can add/remove programs from the control panel. When you click Programs you will see a list of all installed applications. If you don’t know an application on the list and what it does, you probably shouldn’t remove it. Make sure you know exactly which apps you’re using so you won’t make any mistakes.

2. Check Startup Programs

When Windows starts, a button near the clock on the taskbar shows all applications running in the background. Normal apps should appear on this list are the drivers of your video card, any USB or disk devices, audio software if any and antivirus/internet security.

Third-party applications may also run and that’s when you have to check which are they and how to enable/disable them from running in the background. Just type “Task Manager” at the search bar and choose the “Startup” tab. Then you will notice which applications are currently running on your system and take control of them.

3. Install a RAM Cleaner

Software applications can help hardware to run better and faster. For example, System Mechanic is an application that runs on your computer and controls all the other applications. This way ensures that your computer will have the best performance.

System Mechanic can boost the speed of the RAM and CPU, remove bloatware automatically, increase Internet speed, repair problems in registry and maintain stability on your system. On another note, you can easily find a system mechanic discount code and save up to 70%.

4. Add More Ram

Windows 8 or 10 (latest versions) need at least 4GB of main memory to run smoothly on your system but if you want to run more applications and games you will need at least 8GB of RAM.

Check online for prices but be careful! In order to find the same memory for your system, you may need to look the product details that are labeled on your current dim. Make sure you buy the same DDR (2,3 or 4) and MHz (1333-2666+) so both memories (old and new) will be compatible.

Will You Be Able to Use the Innovative Apple Pencil With iPhone7?

It will be great to use the current Apple Pencil with the soon-to-be-released iPhone 7. But if Apple fails to redesign it and make it more compatible, this may never happen.

As many iPhone users await the launch of the iPhone 7 in the United States, one question on the minds of many is: will the iPhone 7 support the Apple Pencil? From NDTV’s Vikram Chandra’s interview of Tim Cook, which took place in May, we can deduce that the Apple Pencil is a fantastic tool for the creative mind.

Apple Pencil can actually be used to draw and create beautiful graphics on the iPad. Undoubtedly, this new Bluetooth enabled stylus-like pencil, which creates an instant impression when you press it lightly on the surface of the iPad, is now one of the most versatile digital drawing and writing tools available today.

The tool was released along with the 12.9 inch iPad Pro and it turned the tablet into a virtual digital canvas. Although Apple also announced the release of iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus on the same day, both smartphones do not support Apple Pencil.

Apple’s 3D Touch

Apple released its last two iPhone versions with another pressure sensitivity technology called the 3D Touch. This technology works by detecting the deformation of the screen, unlike the Apple Pencil which combines the use of high resolution sensors and Bluetooth. The Apple Pencil is more intuitive and it can work with both angle and pressure.


It is very likely that the 3D Touch technology incorporated into the iPhone and the operating mechanism of the Apple Pencil are not really compatible. The large iPad screen does not detect pressure as accurately as the iPhone.

The Apple Pencil

Presently, the Apple Pencil is much longer than the length of the iPhone. Unlike the stylus used for the Samsung Galaxy Note tablet, the Apple Pencil is simply too large to be used conveniently with the the iPhone. In fact, the Galaxy Note stylus is designed to fit into the phone when it is not in use.

When you compare the design of the Apple Pencil and the 12.9” iPad Pro, it is quite obvious that Apple created the present Apple Pencil to work with the iPad. Both of them are almost the same length. However, it is difficult to state with certainty whether the Apple Pencil will eventually be modified to work with the iPhone.

Is Death The Fate For Antivirus Software?

The question on the fate of antivirus software and its essence in the modern world has been a recurring one which has been recently reignited by Darren Bilby speaking at Kiwicon. One thing that remains despite everything is whether it is essential to keep working with antivirus software or do away with it all together.

Antivirus technology has been the backbone of computer security measures for as long, as can be remembered and has been quite an effective tool towards combating a large amount of network spread malware but as recent developments have proven, it is becoming all the more increasingly difficult to keep up with the ever changing dynamic of viruses on the internet and how fast they are spreading, even with developments and improvements in the antivirus software being released and updated every so often.

antivirus software marketLately we have been coming across malware that manages to avoid all set antivirus defense mechanisms on virtually all the different types of antivirus software to go ahead and accomplish attacks on their targets. This has been a cause of worry for a long time and with this latest developments enough to tip the technological community onto a big and valid debate on whether antivirus software can still be relied upon to accomplish the tasks it has for long been trusted to combat or if its time we moved on to approach other avenues of defense for our digital media with technologies such as white-listing, sand-boxing, behavioral analysis, privilege restriction and remote detonation being some of the many new approaches to fighting malware.

So its about time to think more about the relevance of antivirus software in this new technological age or just one among the many ways used by corporate companies to earn a quick dollar. with vendors like Microsoft providing valid point on why we still need to use antivirus, the decision on whether to keep using antivirus software or not falls right down to the retail consumer.

Turning Shoe Information to Shoe Knowledge

I have been following the advances in shoe technology over the past decade. The global footwear market is growing at a stable rate of 2% a year, and it is expected to reach $212 billion in 2018. New research gives birth to new technologies, and the information about shoes is growing every day. From Adidas’ Springblade technology to Nike’s Flyknit invention new models are released every year. In this ocean of information how can consumers identify  the product that is right for them in order to make wise buying decisions?

When you are swamped by too much information, what matters is to organize this information in such a way that it becomes knowledge. We live in an information-rich world, but it is often a challenge to find the information we want amidst all information “noise” and “fog”. AKTORS.org (Advanced Knowledge Technologies For Shoes) aims at helping people find information about shoes that is usable so that they can make the right buying decisions.

From the moment that we wake we just seem to be surrounded by a wealth of information that comes to us from a variety of sources. But, when it comes to shoes, if you take a look at the information that you collect, you will tend to see that most of it is pretty useless and the nuggets of information that are actually important are smaller than you realize. However, those nuggets are what we have to find and it can be tough when it is swamped by everything else. That is where things such as the semantic web can help and, to be honest, we do need all of the help we can get.

So how do you know the information that is important and that which should be forgotten?

Well, to be frank, any information that solves an issue or answers a question that you have, either personally or with your business, can be deemed to be important. However, that does of course mean that you also need to know what the problem is in the first place to then be able to pick out the key information that will provide you with the solution.

In other words, “knowledge” depends on your ability to identify an issue, know what to look for, and to then discard the rest. Sounds easy? Of course it does, but the problem is that it isn’t.

You need to remember one thing.  We talk about “information technology” rather than “knowledge technology” and that in itself should be a clue as to how difficult this can be.

However, in the broad topic of footwear, AKTORS.org offers a solution as it enables consumers to deal with information in a manner that is more suitable to their needs.

Turning Information into Knowledge of Advanced Shoe Technologies

Shoe technology has impressively advanced over the years. Let me mention two shoe brands whose research has resulted in advanced shoe technologies.

Nike Flyknit

 

Named best shoe invention in 2012, the eco-friendly Flyknit is the epitome of the light shoe (160g) with the best form-fitting. It has an unparalleled precision fit because it consists of only one material: a thread that is knitted around your foot. Traditional athletic shoes consist of multiple parts and materials that are cut and sewed together at the expense of proper from-fitting.

Adidas Springblade

SpringBlade TEchnology

Instead of the traditional foam in the outsole, Adidas came up with the idea of 16 polymer blades. Springblade technology functions like a spring. The blades absorb the energy from the user’s weight, and they release it as the user walks, resulting in explosive energy in every step.

 

Turning Information into Knowledge of Savings And Coupon Deals

As a 31-year-old man, I love to stay active. I go jogging every day before heading out to work and have an energy-packed smoothie to start my morning off right. Four or five days a week I also like to hit the gym to stay nice and toned. There are a lot of pretty ladies who go to the gym too, so I try to my best to look good while I’m working out. Through research and personal experience, I’ve found that FinishLine.com has some of the best selection of any other retailer.

FinishLine.com is one of the top retailers in the world for a guy like me who loves to stay active. Their selection of footwear, apparel and accessories are available for men, women and children of all sizes. Finish Line’s personal mission statement says that their goal is to connect fashion-conscious individuals with the best selection of brand name apparel for sports inspired products, and that’s exactly what they do for me.

Some of the Best Shoes Around

I’m a sneaker head and love ensuring that my shoes look as great as the rest of my body. Whether I’m going for a jog, hitting the gym or just having a casual day on the weekend, I like to make sure that my shoes are stylish. FinishLine.com has a wide selection of shoes from some of the most popular brands, so I can always find a new pair when I need them.

Some of the brands they carry include:

  • Nike
  • Adidas
  • Puma
  • Reebok
  • Asics
  • Converse
  • Sketchers
  • Air Jordan

I’ve been known to play a little basketball with some of my buddies on the weekends, so I decided to buy some Jordans. I was able to find a pair of black and red Jordan CP3 VIIIs for a fraction of what they typically cost. Usually this type of shoe is upwards of $130 and with my Finish Line coupon code, I was able to pick them up for less than $60 before taxes. They also sell a variety of other Jordan products so I can make sure I’m matching my brands at all times.

Coupons for a Variety of Products

Whenever I’m getting ready to replace my running shoes or by some new athletic wear, I browse around online for Finish Line coupons that I can use on their site. FinishLine.com has weekly deals, and sometimes I can find discounts to save up to 50 percent on items they’ve already marked down. On occasion, I’ve even been able to find 50 percent off coupons for basketball shoes as well as shoes for my nieces and nephew.

My family and I also love to go hiking whenever we can, so we need to make sure we have some good hiking boots to handle the trails we go on. There are usually coupons for Finish Line hiking boots where we’ve been able to save anywhere from 10 to 20 dollars per pair, which is great because sometimes hiking boots can be quite expensive. For free shipping of thousands of Finish Line items, check also Deal Catcher.

Where I get my Casual Clothes

The best part about Finish Line is that not only can I get athletic clothes and shoes, but they also sell a variety of casual wear as well. When I’m not wearing my Air Jordans or Nikes, I love to wear my Converses when I go out. Finish Line also has a ton of t-shirts that fit me perfectly and are made from great material. I was even able to find a shirt on sale with Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny from the classic movie Space Jam so I could impress the ladies at my local bar.

When I need shirts, pants, shorts, jackets or shoes, I go to FinishLine.com to find what I need and get a great deal on my new clothes. During the holidays, I often just tell my family to go to FinishLine.com and buy me a gift card so I can restock my closet.

Finish Line has a partnership with the University of Indianapolis. With its headquarters in Indianapolis, Finish Line provides high quality merchandise that represents the university of Indianapolis.
