Tip of the Day

One essential thing to do before selling or donating a gadget

  • I'm donating my old computer (still working) to a charity. Is there anything I need to do before I hand it off?
  • Before you turn over a computer, smartphone or tablet to anyone, whether friend, family or stranger, you have to wipe its storage system. This prevents any sensitive information you had on it, such as passwords, tax documents, contacts, personal photos, home videos or anything else, from falling into the wrong hands. For a computer, you can do a full wipe with a free program like Darik's Boot and Nuke or a targeted wipe with Eraser. Windows 8 users have a built-in option in the "Update and recovery" area.

Beginner's Guide: Birdwatching

With the weather getting nicer every day, you might want to spend as much time as possible outside. You can take a hike, ride a bike, or visit a park. If you want to take your outdoor adventures to a new level, you might want to take up bird-watching.

One thing you can almost always count on seeing when you go outside is the birds. Sparrows and doves at your feeders, blackbirds in the fields and vultures that soar the thermal air currents. It's fun to watch them fly and be able to identify them.

But if you're an avid bird-watcher, you don't just want to watch your birds online. You want to get out and see them for yourself! That's why I've taken a look and found a great field guide for your bird watching.

Get a great bird-watching guide.
