GEEK SQUEAKS – Featuring Steps To Clean Your Flat Panel Monitor (and other screen devices)

April 6, 2014


[
FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] – How To Clean Your Flat Panel Monitor – Most of the time when we decide to clean the monitor it is at a time when we are not really prepared to do it.  We’re sitting there and it is something obvious (like a smudge, a fingerprint, a bug etc.) that catches our attention and motivates us to to perform a cleaning. Ant

As a result of this, we end up using glass cleaner and paper towels, which is a big “NO, NO”…  Paper towels or any paper product for that matter contains micro-particles that can scratch the monitor; AND glass cleaners contain chemicals (such as ammonia, alcohol and phosphates) that can damage the optical coating.

5 Step Process:

  1. Turn “OFF” the monitor (actually turn “off” everything including the computer, etc. OR better yet unplug the monitor from its’ power source).
  2. If available, use a can of compressed air to remove any dust particles.  Believe it or not, dust particles can causing scratches.
  3. Use a lint free (microfiber) soft cloth, similar to what you use to clean eyeglasses with, to remove dust particles.
  4. If necessary dampen the cloth with “water” (recommend 50/50 distilled water and vinegar mix), and gently wipe the screen off.  Do Not use commercial cleaners, as they contain damaging chemicals; and, again do not use paper towels or tissues (can scratch the screen).
  5. Post a sign, “Touch my screen and you’re a goner!”  For some reason, some people have to be all “touchy feely” with monitors.  Flat panel screens are not designed to be touched (unless it is a touch screen monitor, tablet, smartphone, etc…).

    NOTE:
      These same steps can be used to clean devices that are designed to be touched (such as smartphones, tablets, touch screen monitors, etc…)

If your flat panel monitor is really dirty, there are commercial LCD, LED, Plasman monitor cleaning solutions and micro-fiber cloths available at most office supply stores.

GEEK SQUEAKS – April 8th Is D-Day For Windows XP

March 16, 2014

If you are a Windows XP user and have been procrastinating about upgrading to Windows 8 or to a new PC (or you just plain do not care), here is the official word from Microsoft that may encourage you to move forward:

Microsoft has provided support for Windows XP for the past 12 years. But now the time has come for us (Microsoft), along with our hardware and software partners, to invest our resources toward supporting more recent technologies so that we can continue to deliver great new experiences.

As a result, after April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC.

If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimize for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter greater numbers of apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.

April 8th Is D-Day For Windows XP

The key issues in the above notice is that you will no longer receive automatic updates, you will be vulnerable to security risks and viruses (which could compromise the security for a whole lot of people) and as time goes on you will experience software and hardware compatibility issues.

GEEK SQUEAKS – Preorder The ASUS Chromebox – AND MORE

March 13, 2014

How would you like a computer that starts up in seconds, has integrated malware and virus protection, is low maintenance, takes up very little space, is perfect for mom and pop, can be easily used as your home entertainment system, is inexpensive, and MORE???????

This may sound like the perfect computer and maybe it is. In the very near future ASUS will be releasing the ASUS Chromebox that will meet the specs, as described above. This is not a Windows based computer. It is a Google Chrome OS based computer that just may be a game changer.

ASUS Chromebox

Features-at-a-Glance

  • 4th gen Intel processors deliver the best performance for Chrome OS
  • HDMI and DisplayPort for dual display support and up to 4k playback1
  • Lightweight, small form design that supports VESA mount
  • USB 3.0 ports to easily share data from USB drives and devices
  • Dual-band Wireless-N connectivity for streaming HD media and seamless web surfing
  • Instant boot up in seconds saves you time
  • Chrome OS for a simplified, secure web experience that syncs all your Chrome services instantly and lets you use apps offline

If you think about it, most of our computing experience these days is online (in the cloud, as they say). The days of computers, as we know it, may be coming to an end; especially as these cloud based devices continue to evolve. I ask myself; especially, being a computer user for over 25 years, would I be satisfied with something like the ASUS Chromebox as my only computing source? I really don’t know at this point, but my geek instincts is telling me that this just may be the perfect computer setup.

The ASUS Chromebox can be pre-ordered [HERE]…  From what I am gathering, pricing will be around $180…
