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.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
