10 Tech Myths That Waste Your Time

Lifehacker published a list of ten technology practices that are useless , or just wrong. The article had some good advice, but I question a few of them;

9. Lossless Music Sounds Better than MP3 – Many people, especially younger people, with more acute hearing, can hear the degradation of music caused by compression (IMHO).

4. You Should Fully Discharge Your Laptop Battery Every Time – The jury is still out on this one, different manufacturers have different recommendations.

1. [Insert Tweak Here] Will Speed Up Your Computer – At first, this tip seems reasonable, but it finishes with ‘With proper care, you should never need to do a clean install of Windows again.’ I find this last bit of advice to be wrong. Most people are not conscientious enough with pc maintenance and so they usually will benefit greatly from an occasional reinstall  (every 1 or 2 years) of Windows.

Read the entire article HERE and see if you agree with their advice.
