How Fast Does Your PC Really Need to Be?

How fast your PC needs to be depends on what you intend to use it for. Most computers are overpowered for what the average user needs, so unless you play a lot of CPU-intensive online games, you can probably get by with an affordable desktop PC or budget laptop.

Information in this article applies broadly to hardware for all desktop and laptop computers regardless of the operating system.

The processor and RAM are the two most important components to look at when accessing a computer’s speed. RAM is typically measured in gigabytes (GB) or terabytes (TB) while processing speed is measured in gigahertz (GHz).

The everyday tasks that most users perform are so minimally hardware-intensive that the lowest-end processors in newer computers are plenty fast enough. For example, 2-4 GB of RAM and a 1.3 GHz Intel Core

The Illusion Of Digital Marketing Is Not Marketing

The topic of fraud and waste in the programmatic digital advertising has been covered extensively before. So, I’ll assume you remember that more than half of every dollar you spend buying low-cost ads from ad tech vendors goes into their pockets instead of towards showing ads, even in the most ideal situations. This “50% ad tech tax” doesn’t show up excel spreadsheets which tell you how much you spent, how many impressions you got (“reach”), what CPM prices you paid (“cost efficiency”), and what click through rates you got (“performance”). Of course, that was by design, so you wouldn’t find out and complain. After all, they wanted to keep you spending. But the illusion of doing digital marketing is not marketing, even if they show you colorful dashboards and excel spreadsheets full of data. As documented in Uber’s successful lawsuit, mobile ad tech vendors “spun up more BS to Uber,”

Computer scientists discover new vulnerability affecting computers globally — ScienceDaily

In 2018, industry and academic researchers revealed a potentially devastating hardware flaw that made computers and other devices worldwide vulnerable to attack.

Researchers named the vulnerability Spectre because the flaw was built into modern computer processors that get their speed from a technique called “speculative execution,” in which the processor predicts instructions it might end up executing and preps by following the predicted path to pull the instructions from memory. A Spectre attack tricks the processor into executing instructions along the wrong path. Even though the processor recovers and correctly completes its task, hackers can access confidential data while the processor is heading the wrong way.

Since Spectre was discovered, the world’s most talented computer scientists from industry and academia have worked on software patches and hardware defenses, confident they’ve been able to protect the most vulnerable points in the speculative execution process without slowing down computing speeds too much.

Top 4 Internet Providers in Fall City, WA (May 2021)

Internet Access in Fall City, Washington

FCC data is the backbone of Fall City broadband availability data listed on this page. We’ve examined 2,082 rows of governmental and privatized databases on Internet availability in Fall City. The download speed averages calculation comes from public M-Labs user speed tests. It’s important to note that speed test-based datasets are a flawed indicator of network performance. These averages are not indicative of the exact download speeds customers receive at houses in Fall City.

CenturyLink and XFINITY from Comcast also have Internet service in Fall City, with significant overlap in some blocks.

Coverage from Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As a result, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is common.
