Computers are essential today. If you work, in a company or on your own, even if you do not and just want to stay connected to family and friends, you need a computer. This is necessary because a lot of communication is not conducted online. That said, making sure your computer is taken care of should be on your list of regular things to do.
Care for the computer is not only about firewalls and anti-virus software. It is also about the maintenance of hardware. So here are some quick basics. Make sure your computer area is always clean. Do not eat, drink, or smoke around the computer as this increases dirt and risk of damage. Make sure you clean inside your computer by moving and dusting regularly. You need to be unplugged form the power source, unscrew the case, and use an air device of some sort for dusting. Finally, make sure the case itself is wiped with a clean, soft, and dry cloth regularly.
These simple steps will lengthen the life of your hardware.
When we think about the things we need in life today, gadgets are probably the last on the list, if they even make the list at all. A lot of folks would think that this is just a desire, a frivolity that really can be done without. What most do not realize is how the world is wired today. Here are some reasons why a gadget- most probably a smart phone- has become a necessity.
1. Most offices now have processes that are linked to online connectivity, storage online, payment methods online. If you are working, you will need a smart phone to at least be able to access work-related documents or to do work processes,
2. Payment methods are now faster and a lot cater more to online transactions. Especially in a world ruled by credit, being able to buy and pay online has become essential to daily activity.
3. Being in contact or contactable is absolutely important whether this be by family, or work, or for freelance projects.
So when making your list of ‘must have’s', stop and think hard if a mobile phone really isn’t one of them
There can be no denying that gadgets today can do so much for a person. Truth be told, a person can do almost anything on the gadgets these days. It has been said that a person can read, go on all kids of social media, do groceries, shop, conduct bank transactions, and basically operate the lighting in the house from a gadget. So one important question is, does a person need one of each kind of gadget, or is one enough?
The answer is simpler that it looks. It really depends on use. If you are the kind of person who does all of the above plus more on your gadget, then perhaps a tablet is the best choice for you. It can be your ebook reader, your music player, your social media hub, your business center, and your banking support all in one. But, if you are a simpler person who uses his or her gadget just for reading, music, calls, and the occasional surfing, a smart phone might be a more afforable choice.
Unless you have been hiding under a rock for a long time, you will have had some exposure to the Internet and the wonderful world of computers in some way. The world has become increasingly more technological and more connected in its advancement.
There are lots of ways to ensure you and your toys are protected ranging from the extremely simple to the hard core complex solutions. If you aren’t one to spend a lot of time and money on complex security systems and if you don’t really need these as well based on your activities, then all you need are the basics. Make sure you get the firewalls set up in your gadget. A firewall is like a tech wall that filters data coming in and going out of your gadget so that you are protected from viruses of hackers that want to access your data. If you aren’t sure how to fix this, get someone to help you out. Don’t skip it as this is a basic requirement for internet security.
One tip to upgrade your Rails is by running Gem to get the latest release. You can do this using:
• gem update rails -y
• sudo gem update rails -y
If you are planning to upgrade your existing projects in Rails, you can try the following method:
• Open your_project/config/environment.rb and change RAILS_GEM_VERSION to determine the version you just upgraded to.
• Check to make sure that any tests you may have written still pass.
Also remember to use gem cleanup to remove older versions of rails.
This may be an easy comparison for some with the automatic answer being “iPad, of course!” If you examine your needs well, you may find that you can live well with a Kindle Fire.
Yes, the iPad is the leader in touch screen technology. Apple’s touch screen grasp is arguably the best in the market. The Apple applications again are arguably the best. There is even a Kindle for iPad application.
The main drawback to this comparison is that the iPad is very expensive, Especially the latest version. If you are someone on a budget, or if you have kids and want a gadget that they can use as well but you have to stick to a strict budget, the iPad may not be an affordable option.
The Kindle Fire boasts of a colored touch screen that can play videos, games, show books and illustrated books. It is also supposed to be easy to use and kid friendly. The Kindle fire is also at least half the price of an iPad.
If you are someone who wants a tablet from a good manufacturer but does not have a big budget or does not want to spend too much, then the Kindle may be a good choice.
There is no doubt these days that, to stay on top of things from friendships to work commitments, you have to have a gadget or two. That can be a daunting and expensive reality to face. It is a good thing there are ways to rationalize this reality and to trim down your would-be purchases.

Do you need to be mobile or are you planning to do the bulk of your activity at home? This will help you decide between a desktop, laptop, notebook, net book, or a tablet. Then think about your need. Can you do most or all of your tasks with one or two gadgets, like a net book and an iPhone, instead of owning a shuffle, an iTouch, and iPhone, and a laptop? Finally consider payment; can you afford it and the subsequent maintenance?
Asking yourself these questions will help you make a smart gadget purchase.
The key to a successful online web development community is accurate and accessible documentation for everyone. That is why the Rails community came up with its own Rails wiki so that users can contribute information and other helpful tips to fellow Rails users. The Rails wiki has everything from the how-to’s in getting started with Rails (installation guides, tutorials, books and FAQ, troubleshooting, tip sheet for beginners, etc.) to community announcements (trainings and job postings, development firms, etc.). One can also find in the Rails wiki the lists of online help groups for Rails users (forums, IRC, user groups, ProblemBase, etc.)
The news just kept showing every day, what a great Ruby on Rails for September. Since it was launched it was being supported and its just getting bigger and bigger. There are many list of programmers who featured Ruby on Rail (ROR), there are new blogs studies and resource tutorials or software.
More on text editors that are used with RoR and we not discuss VIM or Vi Improved. Vim like Emacs is quite efficient and easy to use with RoR provided it is set-up properly. The nice about Vim is that it has the nifty way of highlighting syntax in ruby making it easy to trace and debug. It features advanced features such as having a selective command and insert mode with the first being the default mode upon startup. It is not a word processor so fonts and other word processor features are not to be expected.
One of the quickest and easiest to use as a text editor for making RoR programs with straightforward interface and features mostly adept to windows users. Though considered a text editor it is capable of syntax highlighting, search , spell check and macro recording which makes it a choice of many developers.
Is deployable on both windows based and Unix based systems and is considered to be the native editor of RoR. It was not too user friendly so it quickly lost favor of many developers who turned to the other specified editors for programming code.
