I worked in IT from 1990 to 2006 and had the opportunity to experience the development of personal computers, networking and the ramping up of the internet… If you are thinking about a career in IT, be prepared to evolve with a field of work that is constantly evolving and changing. There are so many options in IT, where some pay better than others. This infographic is good in that it displays the IT Jobs with the highest pay and fastest growth.
Today I decided to do something a little different; more or less, as an experiment of sorts. Since the release of Windows 8 I have had the opportunity to see where people stand when it comes to Windows 8. Most of these people are people who were finally just becoming comfortable with Windows; as it was in Windows XP, Vista and 7. What I am witnessing is that Windows 8 really does have the home-based computer user, more or less; confused, discombobulated, disoriented, thrown for a loop, and just plain frustrated. From my personal experience of using Windows 8, I did find it initially confusing (different); however, in the end I am finding it to be a very stable operating system that I actually like. Some people are comparing it to the release of Vista, which is far from the truth.
What I decided to present today, on the blog, is a poll of sorts to see where you stand when it comes to Windows 8. I have never posted a poll here before so this will be an interesting experiment. I also encourage you to post your opinion via the comments section, as well.
Let’s get started…
With Major League Baseball in full swing I thought a good MLB wallpaper would be fitting. I am an Orioles fan! Who is your favorite team?

Windows 7 (and 8) Users: If you are using Windows 7 (or 8), did you know you can create a desktop background slideshow to show off your pictures and wallpaper images? To learn how to use this feature [CLICK HERE].
As a result of yesterday’s post, where I made an announcement about the NEW Bookmarks4Techs, a reader of the blog introduced me to a similar site that exclusively deals with digital photography, called PhotoStartSheet. As a matter of fact, due to digital photography being tech related, I added this site to the Bookmarks4Techs collection.
A big THANK YOU, to the reader identified as Delenn for sharing this GREAT find with us. PhotoStartSheet is a compilation of links to anything and everything having to do with digital photography.

As many of you know, I maintain a second website called Bookmarks4Techs. As of today I announce that I have moved Bookmarks4Techs to a FREE host (called Weebly) that allows you to use your own domain name for FREE (if you have one). At first I was sort of skeptical of this; however, after using Weebly’s online editor to build the site, I am pretty much sold. Weebly has a large array of templates which to pick from and is an excellent way to establish an online presence.
If you are not familiar with Bookmarks4Techs, I suggest that you bookmark or blogroll it for future reference. Bookmarks4Techs is one of the largest indexes of tech sites on the internet (over 600 links). If you are looking for information regarding software, apps, android, apple, windows, hardware, gadgets, tech news, tech blogs;then you you hit the motherload with Bookmarks4techs.com …
Throughout the years of maintaining What’s On My PC, I have managed to accumulate (and continue to accumulate) links to numerous tech sites. As a result, I decided to share these links with you through Bookmarks4Techs! I personally use the site to navigate the internet looking for ideas for my next article and to keep myself up-to-date on computer information technology. As an added bonus you will find numerous RSS Feeds to some very popular tech sites.
If you have not visited Bookmarks4Techs.com recently, I encourage you to do so. Don’t let the name of the site lead you to believe that the site is only for techs. Bookmarks4Techs is one of the largest collection of links to computer information technology sites and news on the internet. If you have a passion for computer information technology, to include software, apps, cloud computing, desktop computing, tablet computing, smartphones, etc…, then this site is for you. I can guarantee that you will keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest by visiting the links I have posted on the site.
Not only will you find one of the largest collection of links to computer and information technology sites on the internet, you will now find two NEW enhancements to the site.
- Tech News – As you scroll down the listing of links, on the homepage, you will notice RSS news feeds for some of the most popular tech sites and blogs on the internet. These feeds automatically update so that when you come back to visit, there is always something new. I actually use this to get my daily dose of tech news and to see what is new on some of my favorite blogs.
- Archived Blog Posts – The archive is a brainstorm idea that I came up with that list links to every single blog article ever posted at What’s On My PC. As I continue to post here at What’s On My PC, the archive at Bookmarks4Techs will continue to grow. As of today’s post, I currently have archived links to 1,457 posts.

I came across this infographic titled “The Internet – A Decade Later” (at Best Education Sites) that depicts where we were in 2002 in comparison to now (2012). I was an IT Manager at the time when networks and the internet were just ramping up to what it is today (and wireless technology’s was only a dream). I can remember being quite excited over it all, at the time.
Where were you and the internet in 2002?
