Simple Computer Tipe and warnings



  • Some public institutions, like libraries or schools, offer free computer courses for people of all ages. If possible, you ought to invest some time into such programs.
  • Before making choices, learn about the advantages and disadvantages of the program.
  • Some libraries have computer courses that you can take to learn.
  • Make sure the books you look at are up to date.
  • Make sure your computer is good for your use. If you want to just use it for taxes and email, performance is less useful but if you want to do 3D art, you need a a more beefed up computer.
  • On many programs such as Wordpad, there will be a button in the upper part of your screen that says "Help". This is a useful and quick access way to get answers.
  • Most libraries will have computers in them. Consider going there, as they are free.
  • Remember, don't download anything if you are not sure about it.
  • Get enough hard drive space! This is basically how much room your computer has for files. 50 GB should be sufficient.
  • Some applications can help simplify thing
Beware not to fall into the hends of Computer Killers  
  • Be careful about opening attachments in emails, especially from people you don't know, since the attachment may give you a virus.
  • Do not be fooled by unrealistic claims. A good rule of thumb is "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!". And do not put your mobile or home phone number anywhere unless you have read and understood ALL the terms and conditions. Who knows, once claimed a free ringtone, now a broken cell.
  • Do not pay for help unless you have no other alternative.
  • Remember, when it comes to viruses, if you aren't part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Stay protected.
  • If you download files, make sure to run a virus check on it before you open it. It may contain a virus or other mal-ware that can pose a threat to your system.
  • Dangerous emails can also come from your friends. If they have opened and/or received an email with an attachment, it may hijack their address book and send the program to everyone in it.
  • Do not overestimate how good your computer is or how much room because your computer could overload.

How to be a computer Literate

Are you the kind of person who has absolutely no idea how to use a computer? Someone who has never touched a computer before,you just got here by luck? This article will help you become computer literate.

Steps 1:
Find a real person to help you; not just someone online. Some good people to ask  are your own kids. They know a lot about the computer, but they may be annoyed if you ask too much. Also, check out some books at the library about computers. There are a couple of good books out there.

 Step2: Learn the basic steps to get on the computer. Learn how to turn the computer on, off, on standby if applicable, how to log off if using Windows XP, and how to put discs in the disc drive.

Step 3:
Learn about the assorted programs and applications that you will be using.Install them on the computer by placing the CD into the disc drive, and following the installation wizard that pops up on the screen. After installing, play around with the application. this will help you understand the program better.

Step 4:

Learn a little about some of the chat jargon or chatspeak. Some examples are "lol" (laugh out loud), and "btw" (by the way). Also pay attention to - 1337 speak, which means "leet" or "elite". You won't really need to worry about Elite speak, as it was mainly used by hackers and crackers in the 1990s. Now it is mainly used by "wannabe" hackers, so you are most likely safe. Check out the external links for more information. Also, remember that this will help you figure out what you children are saying online when they send you IMs, or instant message

What to Know about Google Translator


Google Translate is a beta service provided by Google Inc. to translate a section of text, or a webpage, into another language.
The service limits the number of paragraphs, or range of technical terms, that will be translated. It is also possible to enter searches in a source language that are first translated to a destination language allowing you to browse and interpret results from the selected destination language in the source language. For some languages, users are asked for alternate translations such as for technical terms, to be included for future updates to the translation process. Text in a foreign language can be typed, and if "Detect Language" is selected, it will not only detect the language, but it will translate into English by default.
If the user is translating English to French, for example, and the language needs to be swapped into reverse order (French to English), clicking "swap" will reverse the orientation of the language translation.

png;base6489b3957f9268d43fGoogle Translate just added a cool new feature that allows you to easily create a personalized phrasebook with the phrases and sentences you want to memorize and/or find yourself translating repeatedly. As the Google Translate team notes in today’s announcement, the idea here is to allow you to jumpstart the process of committing the translation to memory by “allowing you to save the most useful phrases to you, for easy reference later on, exactly when you need them.”
Revisiting these phrases regularly, Google argues, will help you turn these translations “into lasting knowledge” (just like those rote drills from your Latin classes back in the day).
The new phrasebook is now enabled by default, and you can access it through the little book icon in the top right corner of the Google Translate screen. To save a phrase, simply press the new star icon underneath the translations.
The phrasebook itself is pretty straightforward, with one language on the left and the translation on the right. You can filter phrases by language pairs and – just like across the rest of Google Translate – there is a text-to-speech feature that allows you to listen to each phrase.

Whether you’re trekking to a new place or simply trying to communicate with someone who doesn’t share a language with you, Google Translate can help you connect to new information and people. Today, we’re launching 9 new languages that span Africa, Asia, and Oceania and have over 200 million native speakers, collectively.
  • Hausa (Harshen Hausa), spoken in Nigeria and neighboring countries with 35 million native speakers
  • Igbo (Asụsụ Igbo) spoken in Nigeria with 25 million native speakers 
  • Yoruba (èdè Yorùbá) spoken in Nigeria and neighboring countries with 28 million native speakers 
  • Somali (Af-Soomaali) spoken in Somalia and other countries around the Horn of Africa with 17 million native speakers 
  • Zulu (isiZulu) spoken in South Africa and other south-western African countries with 10 million native speakers

Zulu on the Google Translate desktop web app
Igbo on the Google Translate Android app
There are lots of languages in world, and this is the largest expansion into African languages to date (Google Translate supports Swahili and Afrikaans already). The more language is used on the web, the higher chances for us to launch it one day
Throughout Asia, Google is launching languages spoken in Mongolia and South Asia, and thanks to thevolunteer effort of passionate native speakers in New Zealand, there're adding the language of the Maori people.


You can help to add your language to Google Translate. Although Google Translate is an automatic tool, a new language sometimes needs a little love from native speakers to get off the ground. You can help launch your language by volunteering to help us gather and translate texts in your language. Sign up with this form. We’re also constantly fine-tuning our translations. You can help with these efforts by clicking the translated text and editing it to be correct.
As always, we realize that we’re just getting started and have a long way to go. But hopefully these new languages in Translate help you to connect with new friends and new cultures.

Peter is most famous for co-founding PayPal in early 2002, and sold it to eBay later that year for $1.5billion. Not bad for a year's work. This netted him roughly $55million for his small stake in the company. If you've seen 'The Social Network', you may have seen an actor playing Thiel, making an angel investment into Facebook for 10.2% of the company, which only cost him $500,000. This is where he's made the majority of his money, but he is also a serial investor, with stakes in numerous companies.
