The Best Sites for Tech Help & News
We recently asked our TechTalk contributors to share their favorite FREE sites for tech help & news – other than pcpitstop.com & their own 🙂
Listed below are their recommendations and related comments:
Youtube – so I can watch a tear-down of a laptop I’m not familiar with.
iFixit.com – is another great site to learn how to take apart and repair computers you may not be familiar with.
Dell, HP, Lenovo – When dealing with major brand name computers I like to go straight to the source for the manual.
I’ll put in a plug for the Microsoft Community. There are a LOT of answers out there. The downside is that you need to wade through a lot of things that, to put it politely, aren’t answers. Sometimes part of what I do is simply curation: locate answers there and translate them into everyday English.
Big fan of Naked Security’s blog for security related news and tips.
I regularly follow Brian Krebs for the latest information on security breaches and hacking issues: http://krebsonsecurity.com/. One of the most highly regarded people in that area.
