Class Notes 1-18-18

Data Usage
Sometimes it is useful to know how much internet bandwidth you are using.

Should I Remove It?
Ever wonder what some of those programs are for? Her is a tool that scans your computer and shows you what is running and allows you to see what it used for and allows you to remove it.

I saw this advertised on Facebook. Plug it into your USB port and boot from it. An instant PC that runs fast and on older laptops turning them into usable computers. I bought one and demonstrated it in call today.

Then we took a look at Cloudready that will take your old computer (XP and up as long as it can boot from a USB drive) and turn it into a Chromebook! For free! I will build the stick and we can see how it works next week.

We looked at whatsup, a social networking application for cell phones and computers that lets you text and talk and video with anyone having the app.

Using a WiFi extender to bring your WiFi signal to the far end of the house. This is the one we use at the club.

In addition to my own research, I want to give thanks to Harold at the Club, Newsletter, and for the useful ideas we take a look at each week.
