5 Harmful Mistakes People Make When Getting Rid of Computers

Once upon a time you and your oversize but semireliable laptop computer were inseparable, and you couldn’t imagine getting rid of it. Ever! Sure, it wasn’t as sleek or powerful as newer models, but it was there for you when you needed it, and even when you didn’t. But the years passed, new technology came out (or your workhorse finally croaked), and eventually you faced the harsh reality: It was time to upgrade.

But what do you do with it? Unlike random couches discarded on the side of the road, there are right—and wrong—ways to dispose of computers.

“Computers can contain personal and sensitive information, so it is important to dispose of them properly and in a secure manner,” says Walter Alcorn, vice president of Environmental Affairs and Industry at Consumer Technology Association.

Sure it’s easy to just toss your laptop, desktop, or central processing unit in the trash.

Finding solutions: St. Peter business fixes, upgrades computers | Business

ST. PETER — When Tavish Satrom and Matt Baker opened Computer Plus Solutions in 2008, a computer repair business in St. Peter, computers were larger and slower but getting significantly faster each year. While computers themselves have gotten smaller and more diversified in size and shape in the past 10 years, the technology has slowed down.

That, Satrom said, is good for customers with older computers — allowing them to get more mileage from a laptop or desktop than before.

“People that have computers from six or seven years ago are able to get new life out of them because not much has changed with technology for the last 10 years,” he said.

Another benefit is the declining cost of hard drives, which has made it more affordable to replace a hard drive rather than buying a new computer.

“These parts we used to not recommend because they were $500

After an early pandemic shortage computers are shipping again, Canalys reports

Computer manufacturers shipped 79 million personal computers in the third quarter of 2020, an uptick of 13 percent year-over-year with Lenovo leading the pack, technology analyst firm Canalys reported.

Looking at worldwide desktop, laptop, and workstation shipments, Canalys found Acer shipped 5.6 million units last quarter for a 15 percent increase from the year-ago quarter. That was the largest percentage increase from 2019. But Lenovo shipped the most units in the third quarter, at 19.3 million, an 11 percent increase from last year, followed by HP with 18.6 million, a 12 percent year-over-year uptick. Dell shipped 11.9 million units in Q3 which was actually a decrease of 0.5 percent from the year prior, while Apple shipped 6.3 million units for an increase of 13.2 percent.

Earlier this year, laptops were especially hard to find, with a huge, sudden increase in demand from people working and learning from home during the

Dryden donates computers to FPCA

Dryden Enterprises & Dryden Properties recently donated 18 computers to local school, First Preparatory Christian Academy (FPCA). The donation will replace outdated technology for the teaching staff as they adjust to accommodate social distancing guidelines.

“We are so incredibly grateful for the generous donation from Claude Dryden and Dryden Enterprises and Dryden Properties. Their donation allowed us to update our technology at a most critical time and will allow us to continue to improve our virtual learning options for our families. In fact, this update will continue to serve our technology needs for years to come. On behalf of the FPCA family, thank you,” stated Dr. Canup, interim head of school.

In response to COVID-19, FPCA modified in-person class structure to maintain social distancing as well as incorporated new virtual learning paths. For in-person learning, the school adjusted to have teachers transitioning classrooms rather than students. The virtual learning components

  • You can download Nvidia drivers right from the Nvidia website, or using an app called Nvidia GeForce Experience.
  • If you have an Nvidia GeForce card, you can install the GeForce Experience app to automatically install the right Nvidia drivers. 
  • If you have a different kind of Nvidia card or don’t want to use the Experience app, you can manually download drivers from the Nvidia website. 
  • Before you download new Nvidia drivers, use the Windows Device Manager to find out what graphics card you have installed.
  • Visit Business Insider’s Tech Reference library for more stories.

For years, Nvidia has been a leader in the field of computer graphics. Many of the most powerful computers on the market use Nvidia graphics cards.

OUSD makes progress providing students computers

OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) – KRON4 is hearing about success for an online learning program in an East Bay school district.

Although there are some technical issues, one parent tells KRON4 she is in no rush to return her child to the classroom.

It has been two months of distance learning for students in the Oakland Unified School District. There has been major progress in getting computers in the hands of students.

“We are in a position where the overwhelming majority of our students have either a loaner computer from one of our schools or they have received an Oakland Undivided computer. Vast majority online, engaged in distance learning,” district spokesperson John Sasaki said. 

“I was nervous coming into this year. I knew it wasn’t going to be the same as being in-person,” parent Rebecca Rozo-Marsh said. 

Rebecca Rozo-Marsh says overall distance learning has been a good experience for her first

BEAM gives computers to students in Single Parent Program

The Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry, commonly referred to as BEAM, recently organized a technology distribution designed to help children in single-parent households succeed in school this year.

After receiving a major gift from an anonymous donor, BEAM was able to purchase 19 iPads for elementary-age students and 11 new laptops for middle and high school students. A majority of the families who received a new computer had no computer at home or shared one device with multiple family members.

While Duval County Public Schools provided loaner laptops, the numbers available per household were limited and the units outdated. In addition, a number of single mothers enrolled in BEAM’s Single Parent Program are in school themselves, taking online classes to earn associate’s or bachelor’s degrees. 

“We wanted to do something special for the families because this year has been especially challenging,” said Gracie Simendinger, BEAM’s director of development. “The parents

Scientists find evidence of exotic state of matter in candidate material for quantum computers

Scientists find evidence of exotic state of matter in candidate material for quantum computers

This twist is key to the compound’s unusual behavior, which is evidence that it may contain an example of a quantum spin liquid.

Using a novel technique, scientists working at the Florida State University-headquartered National High Magnetic Field Laboratory have found evidence for a quantum spin liquid, a state of matter that is promising as a building block for the quantum computers of tomorrow.

Researchers discovered the exciting behavior while studying the so-called electron spins in the compound ruthenium trichloride. Their findings, published today in the journal Nature Physics , show that electron spins interact across the material, effectively lowering
