Should You Water Cool Your Computer?

Why Do I Need Cooling?

As you’ve most likely experienced with a laptop on your lap, computers produce a lot of heat! This is similar to a car engine getting hotter as it’s put through more work. The higher the revs the more the heat. As a computer gets more stressed, it puts out more heat. Most processors (the engine of the computer) nowadays actually slow themselves down as they get hotter, this is called thermal throttling, and it protects the processor from damaging itself. In emergencies, the computer will turn itself off or restart itself if it detects very high temperatures.

Updates Suck

Updates Suck

The other day, my phone wanted to do an update. In fact, it had been pestering me continually. Turns out it wanted to do a 1 gig update, which on my 16 gig phone with only half a gig of free space wasn't going to happen. It seemed an excessively large update, but I cleared the photos off my phone and allowed the update to go through.

Computer Passwords Gone?

The latest update from Microsoft Windows, called 1903, includes a feature called 'Windows Hello' that uses facial recognition instead of a password to get into your computer. This is another great attempt by Microsoft to make things easier to use. But our recommendation is that you DO NOT USE IT. If you have Windows 10, this applies to you. Let me explain why you shouldn't use it...
