Every one of us has a story that we can tell about trying to learn how to use computers: the day we wiped off all of our files, visiting a web site that shut your computer down with a virus or of getting a permanent blue screen on the computer. Computers can be challenging to master (thats part of the fun), they can be frustrating and almost impossible to understand for many people. The funny thing is that for some other people, computers are a breeze. They find what they are looking for quickly, resolve technical issues as though they weren’t an issue and they manage to make the computer do everything they want it to do. These are the kinds of people you want at your disposal when your computer plays up and these are the types of people that work at Geeks2U.
If you are curious though about discovering more about your computer and learning the fundamentals of how to keep it running smoothly, and how to take care at least of basic computer issues, there are many good technology web sites that exist specifically for the home user. On most of these sites, there is good reading material for the beginning computer user, the intermediate and the advanced. In fact, these are places that you can grow in your knowledge of computing and all that is available out there for home users.
Some of the most popular technology web sites have been around for a long time and also exist in magazine form as well. They cover a wide range of subjects that would be of interest to the home computer users, from equipment, gadgets, software, hardware, the geeks behind the gadgets we use and more. Also many self-help/how-to articles will help you solve that nagging problem that has always baffled you about your own computer.
My Personal Favorite Tech Sites for Home Users are:
To use this type of web site successfully, you need to learn how to be a good researcher, or “searcher”, which is what most of us do these days on the Internet. Make full use of the search facilities that each site has. When you are looking for the answer to a problem, type the problem into the search field in the most descriptive way possible. This will give you the best chance of finding an article that matches your problem. Also, become familiar with the site navigation and the categories that the site owners have developed. Sometimes you will find what you want very easily through following the natural flow of the site navigation.
