Welcome fine readers of The Simple Dollar! Today, we’re going to cover my best practices for laptop shopping. I’ve never covered this topic in depth here before, though I have other places. Given the kindness of Drew over at TSD reaching out to me for feedback and advice on the topic for their own site, I figured it’s time to finally delve into the fullness of that topic here with a few pointers. Let’s get started!
I haven’t linked or talked much about the latest news regarding the NSA, PRISM, or Edward Snowden’s leaks. Truthfully, I’m unsurprised and feel this changes nothing about the current state of privacy and technology. People are overreacting only because ignorance is bliss. Anyone even truly familiar with what networked technologies can do are simply reaffirmed of suspicions we’ve had for years.
