You’re excited about the new gadgets and tech gear that you received over the holidays. But now you’re not sure what to do with them or how to set them up. Uneek Industries knows this can be a confusing time for people, so we’ve developed a few simple tips to help you coexist with your new technology.
— Keep the manufacturer’s boxes for 90 days. If you need to return any defective products, having the original boxes can make the process much easier.
— Keep a note pad near your computer and write down all those weird error messages. If you’re forced to call a tech support line, your notes could help reduce the amount of time you’ll be on the phone.
— Write down your passwords on a single sheet of paper that’s kept in a hiding place away from your computer. (It’s easier to remember the location of a sheet of paper than numerous passwords for countless websites.)
— If your computer seems slow or isn’t obedient, you may need more memory or a bigger hard drive.
— Spyware has become almost unavoidable, but you can still take some preventative measures. For example, Spy Sweeper is an affordable program that helps find and rid your PC of spyware, and you can set the program to run while you’re asleep.
— Be careful of opening emails – especially attached files – from unknown sources.
— Play around with your new technology. People learn best when they are playing and having fun, and the gadgets become less intimidating.
— Flip through the manual. You don’t need to memorize every detail, but by breezing through you’ll learn things about your gadget that you never even dreamed.
