Technology tips

Years ago I owned a computer hardware company and advised businesses and individuals on computers.  I ran across this article this morning in the New York Times, and thought it worth passing along for those who need new computers but have no idea how to go about selecting one.

Technology continues to be one of the most challenging areas for personal and business risk management.  To prevent loss and frustration once you do purchase a new computer, do be sure to check for and install all the operating system security patches; and do turn on the firewall that protects your computer from a great deal of harmful network traffic; and finally, consider purchasing a more advanced form of internet and computer security protection from a software manufacturer like Trend Micro or Symantec, especially if you are planning to do online banking or online purchases.
