Time to Upgrade? Continuing with our Computer Basics and 101 motif, this week we look at a decision every computer owner eventually faces: is it better to upgrade the computer I’ve got, or replace it altogether? Hour one is all about making that fateful decision: fix up or buy anew? Mac or PC, at some point you will have to make that choice!
Upgrading your Computer Hardware Continuing with our Computer Basics and 101 motif, this week we look at a decision every computer owner eventually faces: is it better to upgrade the computer I’ve got, or replace it altogether? Hour two is about prolonging the life of your current computer ! We’ll talk about inexpensive upgrades, like RAM, that can up your system’s performance. We’ll talk about more expensive alternatives, like SSDs, that can give your system a whole new lease on life. And we’ll have Tracy on to talk about the best places to get deals on those upgrades!

Hostageware and Cryptowall What a revolting development! The bad guys are still working 24/7 to make everyone’s lives worse, and to that end there’s a NEW version of Cryptowall. What does it do? What makes it worse? We spend our first hour talking about this horrible piece of Hostageware so you can better prepare yourself in case the worst happens!
iPad Pro – What’s it for? The new iPad Pro is now available, the biggest, fastest, most powerful Apple tablet to date. So is this the Laptop-Killer that Apple has dreamed of since the first iPad, five years ago? Well, just like shoes, there’s not necessarily a one-size fits all when it comes to these things. Is it just a bigger iPad? What can I do with it? What does it come with? Would it be a good buy for me? And what are the alternatives if this isn’t perfect for what I want? What is Apple thinking? Join Jonathan, Sam, and L.D. as we try to divine what the Wizards of Cupertino are up to this time, and what they may do next!
