1. Using harsh cleaners like Windex, ammonia, or alcohol is not the best thing for your LCD screen. Really be cautious when cleaning the display. If using a spray cleaner, avoid spraying the screen directly. Try cleaning the screen with a micro-fiber cloth, like the micro-fiber keyboard screen cleaning pad in the Laptop Accessory Kit from HandStands. 2. Hard drives are sensitive devices. Avoid jarring the computer is while it's operating. Before moving the laptop, always shut down or hibernate the system. 3. We recommend partitioning larger hard drives to help with efficiency and the organization of your computers documents. 4. Do not overcharge or leave your Li-ion battery fully charged without use. Also, no need to worry about the memory effect of Li-ion batteries - they don't have this problem.
Exposing the battery to intense heat (over 110 d. F) should also be avoided for obvious reasons. Batteries can be dangerous, as can be seen from numerous battery recalls in the past from manufacturers like Dell, Toshiba, and Apple. 5. Just like intense heat, leaving your laptop exposed to freezing cold temperatures is also not recommended. If for some reason you find yourself in this situation, let your laptop return to room temperature before trying to turn it on. 6. For the same reason it is recommended to have surge protectors in your home for electronics, you should consider unplugging your modem, network, and power cord when a storm is approaching. Lightning and electronics do not mix well. The last think you want is to have a burned out machine.
What exactly is color therapy? Color therapy is based on the fact that physiologic functions respond to specific colors. The next time you're at a fast food restaurant look around at the decor. The colors are bright, cheery and fun. Do you think the designers picked those colors just so you would be "happy" while you were there? Think again! Not that they don't want you happy, but bright colors such as red, orange and yellow have been proven to stimulate the nervous system and increase your appetite. This idea is associated with an ages-old principle called "color therapy". Color therapy is based on the fact that physiologic functions respond to specific colors. Exactly how does this happen? Attached to the brain are pineal glands, which control the daily rhythms of life. When light enters through the eyes (or the skin) it travels neurological pathways to these pineal glands. Different colors give off different wavelength frequencies and these different frequencies have different effects on physical and psychological functions. The example given above with yellow, red and orange in the fast food restaurant is just one way this principle works. Read more...
