Choosing the Right Power Supply For Your Computer System Mar13

Choosing the Right Power Supply For Your Computer System...

There are several things that you need to consider when choosing a computer system. However, you also need to take into consideration your power supply. Choosing a power supply that is not suitable for your system will only lead to more complications, and this is something that you want to avoid at all costs. Before you purchase your power supply, you should first make sure that you know the form factor of your computer. This includes noting whether your computer is fit for ATX power supplies or Micro ATX alternatives. You should also make sure that the power supply will fit inside your computer casing, as this is another vital factor when it comes to installation. ATX Casings and Power Supplies ATX cases require an ATX form factor PSU to operate at maximum efficiency, but some ATX models provide a higher amount of power and therefore are much longer than standard models. If this is the case, then you should consider purchasing a larger case to protect your unit. Another thing you should consider when purchasing your computer power supply unit is the quality of the product. A cheap power supply is much more likely to fail than if you paid a little more to get a good brand that is known for performance. Having a cheaper power supply will also put your entire computer at risk, as burnouts are very common with poorly made power packs and this could easily lead to the destruction of valuable components. Overall Power Output When purchasing your power supply, you should also take note of what power you’re going to need. If you operate your desktop computer on a daily basis for general duties, then a standard 350-400W power supply will be more than efficient for running...

How Companies can Save Money by Using a Fingerprint Timeclock Mar01

How Companies can Save Money by Using a Fingerprint Timeclock...

In this tight economy, business owners are taking more and more steps to save money in order to remain profitable. For many businesses, employee down time causes loss of revenue because they are getting paid but they are not actually working. For instance, employees who come in a few minutes late every day get paid for their full shift, but their employers are losing that much time every day in productivity. A few minutes here and a few minutes there add up to a lot of down time after a while. Even using a standard timeclock isn’t a guarantee that employees will actually be on time. Without an accountable time tracking system in place, it is too easy to do what is known as “buddy punching”. This is when someone gets a co-worker to punch in or out for them so they don’t get in trouble for being late or leaving early. This is actually considered a form of time theft because employees are stealing time from the company, which translates into dollars. A new system is being integrated into many businesses that puts an end to “buddy punching”. This new system is an automated fingerprint timeclock. Since it leverages biometric technology, there is only one person who can actually mark attendance – the person who the fingerprint belongs to. Using such a system reduces employee tardiness because employees know they can no longer manipulate their time by asking a friend to punch them in or out. If you’re worried about identity theft and fingerprint security, don’t be. Each and every print that is recorded is encrypted. This means it is converted from the original image and stored as a set of numbers. The print is not an actual print at all. Biometric timeclocks are...

Who Needs BYOD Mobile Device Management? Jan15

Who Needs BYOD Mobile Device Management?...

Imagine, if you will, that you are the IT Manager at a large establishment that has numerous computers, all inter-connected via a network that you administer. Not so long ago, your job was reasonably straight forward. Keep the computers “talking” to each other; allow some access to the more sensitive areas while denying access to others; control the programs that people install and use on company computers; monitor their use of the internet during working hours and place any necessary restrictions; etc. Today, It Is A Lot More Complicated It is amazing how many honest people think that they are entitled to something for nothing! For policy reasons you try to stop the staff from using their company email addresses for private mail and you endeavour to stop personal web browsing – not as easy as it sounds. They will still try to sneak in a quick private search or two and they all open web based email accounts and download all sorts of files which may, or may not, be safe. At best, you manage to maintain a measure of control over the computers on your network. When they are at home, people expect to have to pay for their internet usage – why do they think that they should have free use of your bandwidth (and do so in your time)? Especially When They Bring Their Own Devices Control over company computers is one thing, and it is relatively easy to ban staff from bringing in their own laptops; but, these days, there are so many ways that people can connect themselves, wirelessly, to the internet with devices that are not obviously visible when they come through the door. It would be totalitarian of you to ban all cell phones from your...
