Understanding why computers sometimes turn into tortoises

It’s sooooo slooooow!  A couple of weeks ago I warned readers that this was a complaint I frequently hear from clients about their computers and that I was sure to have more to write on this topic than would fit into one column.

Revisiting the Internet’s ‘Stone Age’ as far back in history as the 1990s!

Over the years I have made it a tradition at this time of year to look back on the most important news events in the world of Information Technology.  This year I am having a bit of difficulty deciding what is really worth reviewing.  Microsoft released Windows 10 (yawn), Apple introduced a smaller iPad (ho hum), and there was more of the same news about government snooping and the erosion of personal privacy.  As I looked back on the tech-related news of 2015 I found myself looking even further back and discovered something much more interesting.
