Three tips to Speed up and Clean your PC

These past few weeks I had been avoiding my laptop because it had gone crazy slow. Programs would take ages in opening up and the system would freeze up in minutes. Since it's the weekend, I decided to finally sit down and dive in. In less than an hour I was done, and my laptop is back to normal again. All in three steps:

Just like an app store from your smartphone but

Apple iPad 2 verses Amazon Kindle Fire

As many of you know, Amazon announced the new additions to the kindle family. The top of the range is the kindle fire. Having full colour, movies, apps and more.

Do you think the kindle fire is more of a threat to the iPad? or rather to all the other android tablets out there? Leave a response in the comments below.
