    If you have an old PC with only a mechanical hard drive inside and it's getting too slow, an SSD is a cheap and easy way to get a big speed increase. Over time your PC will slow down, that's just the sad nature things. If you're using an older PC that doesn't have any form of SSD inside it, however, there's one very simple thing to do that will reap you some significant performance increases.

A HDD-only system will be slow to boot up, slow to load apps, slow to read and write files. For not a lot of money and a spare couple of hours you can breathe new life into your PC. Here's everything you need to know. What you need What you'll be doing is installing a new, small capacity SSD into your PC to move your Windows install and crucial applications over to. This way you'll get faster boot, loading and read/write times, while retaining your l...

Just like Windows 10, Microsoft offers an Insider program for Office, which lets subscribers get early access to upcoming features and enhancements.

    You don't need a smartphone phone to use the Amazon Echo. Windows 10 is also Alexa's friend! The Amazon Echo is not a smart home product that is reliant on a mobile device to operate. Once set up, the Echo is entirely voice activated and it's very good at it. You simply use the app to pair it to your WiFi, adjust settings and add or remove skills. OK, so there's a good amount of interaction through an app, but you don't need the app to make it do things throughout the day. And the best thing of all is that Amazon has a web app for Alexa that does everything the Android and iOS apps do. So you can use an Echo with Windows 10. Which Amazon Echo should you get? Amazon now has a whole range of Echo products to choose from: The Echo Dot, Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Tap, Echo Show and Echo Spot. The first big difference between them is the price. The Echo Dot is $50, the 2nd generation Echo is $100 and the Echo Plus is $150. The Spot is $129 and Show is $229, with these two also having ...

SSD's are pretty fast, and Samsung has some of the very fastest consumer drives out there. While the company's fancy new 970 Evo and Pro drives boast insanely fast read and write speeds, for the older, SATA spec drives there's still hope. Samsung has a thing called Rapid Mode that can add a little extra oomph to some of its SSDs. Here's a quick look at what it is, how you use it and whether you should. What is Rapid Mode? From Samsung's official description: Achieve over 2X faster performance through intelligent DRAM caching of data, for read acceleration and write optimization. You can't physically make the drive faster, as the read/write speeds are bound by the limitations of the hardware. Rapid Mode instead uses intelligence and other resources in your PC, namely the RAM, to cache files for quicker access and a more streamlined write process. As Rapid ...
