Reading articles online, written by people who know what they are talking about, is perhaps the best way to stay up to date on any subject, especially computers and new technology.
With computer components getting faster and more demanding everyday, it’s a wonder that anybody ever has an up to date computer. And technology as a whole is moving at such incredible speeds, every day is literally the most advanced human beings have ever been.
So with this in mind, you probably wonder how you can stay completely up to date on it all, while still learning about current technology. The fact is, basically in the field of technology you have to learn and practice at the same time.
How to Find Great Articles on Computers
Using the search engines to find information is something just about everybody does, but usually a search returns somewhat old information and pages with the information you are looking for scattered all over.
The best way to find high quality articles and article directories that have very informative information is to put the word “articles” along with your search term. This way the search results that you get back will most likely be just articles and article directories that have related information to the rest of your search term.
Staying up to Date on Current Technology
While you can use the same method as I stated above to find computer information and articles, you can do the same with technology information. The problem with that though is you can never really be sure the author knows what they are talking about.
Usually at the end of an article there is a resource box with a link to the author’s website, but even then it is still hard to tell who knows what they are talking about.
What I do is usually one of two things. I double check what I am reading by searching for the same words on the search engines, and see if other authors say the same thing or not.
You can also use highly popular, but also ever changing, social voting news websites, like Digg or StumbleUpon. Do a search for those websites, and when you visit them you will see that other members like you can vote on information and articles that they know or believe to be true.
While sometimes people can be deceived and false information gets posted, it is much less often then regular websites owned and operated by Joe Anonymous.
So in a nutshell, the best way to stay up to date on computers and technology is to use the search engines, and continue to use websites that you know to be truthful, at least for the most part.
