I recently decided that it was time to transition from using a forty-inch TV to an actual monitor. For the most part, I wanted to move past the sixty frames per second limitation that most TV based screens are stuck with. I would have loved to picked up a 4K Predator but couldn’t justify the […]
Network Edge Devices act as the brains for a computer network. They combine functions like Routing, Firewall, VPN hosting, Network Load Balancing, DNS, DHCP, Intrusion Detection & Prevention, and Data Classification into a single device. Network edge systems offer a single pane of glass to monitor and control your entire network from. Throughout my IT […]
This winter, it was time to help my son find a new laptop. He needed a well balanced system that could do most everything well. He’s a student with a focus on technology, he writes code, edits graphics, produces video and music, and spends a lot of time on-line. He’s also an avid gamer that […]
