Book Review: Always Use Protection-- A Teen's Safe Guide To Computing

The Internet is a great resource tool that contains oodles of information and can be used by people of all ages, genders and races. For the uninitiated, though, it can yield unexpected nasties and surprises. This book is about computer security and privacy, providing all the information needed in one easily-accessible place.

Always use protection by Daniel Appleman

Even though it is targeted at teens and young adults, this book contains information suited to anyone just starting out with a computer, coupled with the Internet. Even older computer users may benefit from this title because of its wide range of topics, as different types of people have different types of security needs.

Topics such as spyware, viruses, software updates, firewalls, chat rooms and identity theft are covered. A special chapter is included for parents worried about their child's online activities. The chapter discusses online behaviour and privacy, and how not to be exploited. There are excellent tips and hints throughout the book such as 'Rule of thumb' or 'Caution', which are flagged in the normal text for special attention.

This book does a great job of explaining that it can be a dangerous World Wide Web out there, and offers excellent resources on how not to become a victim.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
