A number of companies now produce Internet-connected appliances like printer, scanners, faxes, and home entertainment systems, but ordinary home computers are not quite as flexible or as easy to use as they could be. We’ve all seen the wires sticking out of our PC’s, no matter how well we’ve cleaned them, and we know we don’t have the room in our homes for those kinds of things.
Lets Talk Technology gives you tips for ensuring that your home computer remains as unobtrusive as possible.

The internet protocol is what makes the PC a communications processor, and it was developed originally for the military and police. But today it’s in use everywhere else because it’s fast, reliable, and can handle the data and audio, video, and file transfers that are now all part of modern life.
The PC and the modem are the most common components in the communication network that runs between the computer and the rest of the world. The networking that’s used by PCs has been around since the 1960s, but as the PCs become more popular and the distance between PCs increases, the technology needed to support the network continues to evolve.
