Simple ways to improve your technology at home!

It’s a little past the halfway point this year and NuAge PC wants to give our customers some simple ways to improve your technology at home for the remainder of 2016!

For Computers:

  • First make sure to have an ACTIVE antivirus solution because sometimes our customers are paying for licenses and then it expires and is never renewed.
  • Make sure antivirus solution is also updated to the latest version and virus database is updated as well.
  • Also make sure your Operating System is updated and upgraded to the latest version if possible and all the software on your computer is up to date (Adobe, Java, Office, Google Chrome, Firefox,etc) to patch as many vulnerabilities as possible on your system

For Security Cameras:

  • Take a look at your connectors for corrosion. Be sure to replace any connectors that show signs of corrosion, because it can cause your equipment to short out.
  • Make sure the enclosures on your security cameras have no water, condensation or dirt in them.
  • In order for security cameras to work their best they must have clear views at all time. Make sure to keep all trees, bushes, and vines perfectly trimmed. There’s nothing worse than having an issue on your property and when you look up the footage, all that’s there is a tree branch blocking the camera.

For Televisions:

  • Turn off the TV when no one is around, this will ease the strain on the TV’s LCD screen as well as lower the electric bill.
  • Make sure your TV is in a well ventilated position, if a TV has no ventilation this leads to the inside of the TV corroding and overheating.

For Tablets:

  • Delete your unnecessary apps, they not only drain your battery but they also slow your tablet down!
  • Clean your tablet’s cache, wiping this folder clean will help improve your tablet’s speed and performance.

Making the case for Curved TVs

THE ARGUMENTS IN FAVOR OF CURVED TVS

Curved TVs were the most hyped piece of new technology in the last year, but are they really worth the hype? Curved TVs were created so that your viewing experiencing could be enhanced by having the screen of the television curved. Below are reasons making the case for curved TVs:

1. They improve immersion

This is the biggest argument made in favor of curving TV screens. The idea is that by curving the image slightly forward, the world you’re watching seems to ‘wrap around’ you more, entering slightly more into your peripheral vision and thus drawing you deeper and deeper into the experience.

 

2. The sense of ‘depth’ is enhanced

One of the most common reactions from people watching a curved screen for the first time is that it looks like 3D, even when the source is 2D. This is because curving the edges of the image towards the viewer enhances the visual perception of depth in what you’re watching. Samsung underlines this by applying depth enhancement processing to its curved TVs that adjusts the contrast of different parts of the image to boost the sense of field depth. 

 Conclusion

If you enjoy being immersed in movies and sporting events, a curved TV is perfect for you. The future of home entertainment will be these types of TVs and although not everyone has warmed up to the idea, companies are doubling down.
