I got computers. I like to pretend that I don’t but I do. I like a computer in the livin’ room for music, n movies, an internet, n videos, n pictures all on the big tv. Our family computer got all squirly a few moths ago an I just never got around to dealin’ with it. The thought of settin up a new computer an getting all the files off the old one, it just didn’t sound fun. Well I finaly got frustrated enough to do somethin about it. I don’t know if it was the lack of music in the house or fallin behind on Netflix shows. I had to get a new computer. But I am tiered of under-powered cheap boxes. So I got this EKIH77M350.
I’m runnin windows 8 an it ain’t so sweet for me now. I can see how it would work for a touch screen but to me it feels like tryin to Applefy an Artichoke. Know what I mean? Me, I like Artichokes. So anyway, I found this an thought you might like to read it as well: 8 worst Windows 8 irritations (and how to fix them), it’s an article from pc world, lettin you know some configs to get your Artichoke back on point.
A useful video tool is VLC, mentioned in the article above, which is a must have for Windows users. It helps manage all of the encoding issues that come up from our crazy world of expandin codec options. How to master VLC, the ultimate Windows media player for power users, is another from pc world.
I’ll be lettin ya know about my new computer n wireless keyboard/pad. That actually works! Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400.
