10种方法让你发挥技术的最大功效

  让音乐摆脱电脑的束缚 为什么:以数码格式购买的音乐想要获得解放,不想再束缚于移动播放器或笔记本电脑了。它需要传遍全家,就像很棒的老式hi-fi(高保真音响)一样,充盈整个房间。
How: Using iTunes for your digital music? Buy Apple’s Airport Express for $99 and connect it to your stereo. When you play music on your computer, you can stream it to the Express and, therefore, your stereo’s speakers. Have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad? Download Apple’s free Remote app and you will be able to control your music from anywhere in the house.
  怎么做:用iTunes播放数码音乐?可购买Apple的Airport Express,价格为99美元,并将其与立体音响连接。当你在电脑上播放音乐时,可以将它以流模式导入到Express里,由此也就可用音响扬声器播放了。有iPhone、iPod Touch或iPad么?下载Apple的免费Remote应用,你便可在家里任何地方控制音乐了。
BACK UP YOUR DATA Why: Because photos are not the only important things on your computer. With online backup services, you do not have to buy any equipment; you just install software, which sits on secure servers and runs in the background, regularly updating a mirror image of all your files while you spend time on more important things, like confirming that Ben Gazzara really was the bad guy in “Road House” (he was).
  备份数据 为什么:照片可不是电脑上唯一重要的东西。有了在线备份服务,你就不必购置任何设备了;只需安装软件即可,软件位于安全服务器上,在后台运行,当你花时间在更重要的事情,如确认本·吉扎拉(Ben Gazzara)是否真是《威龙杀阵》中的坏家伙(他确实是)时,软件会周期性更新你所有文件的镜像。
How: Go to sosbackup.com. Pay $80 a year. Install the software. Sleep easy.
  怎么做:访问sosbackup.com。一年年费用为80美元。安装该软件。睡个好觉。
SET UP A FREE FILE-SHARING SERVICE Why: Because while e-mailing yourself files is a perfectly decent workaround, there are easier, more elegant ways to move files around — and they do not cost anything, either.
  安装免费的文件共享服务 为什么:虽然把文件email给自己也算一种相当不赖的解决方案,但还有更简易,更精致的移动文件的方法——而且它们不需要花钱。
How: Go to dropbox.com and set up a free account. You will then get an icon that sits on your desktop. Drag and drop files onto that icon, and they are immediately copied to the cloud. The free account gives you up to two gigabytes of disk space; 50- and 100-gigabyte are also available, but they cost $10 or $20 a month.
  怎么做:访问dropbox.com,注册一个免费帐号。然后你就会在电脑桌面上看到一个图标。把拖拽文件到那个图标上,它们就立即被复制到云里了。免费帐号可最多给你2G的空间;50G和100G的空间也有,不过它们一个月的费用分别是10美元和20美元。
Set up your account on all your other computers, and they all have the access to the same files. You can set up shared, private and public folders, and apps for iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry and Android mean you can gain access to shared files from anywhere.
  在你所有其他电脑上设好帐号,它们便都可访问同样的文件。你可以将文件夹设为共享、私有或公开,还有面向iPhone、iPad、BlackBerry和Android的应用则可让你从任何地方访问共享文件。
GET FREE ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE Why: Because attacks on unwitting users are more widespread and tactics are growing more advanced.
  获得免费杀毒软件 为什么:针对毫不知情用户的攻击正日益普遍,其手段也越来越高明。
How: Windows users should download Avast Free Antivirus. Mac users can download iAntiVirus Free Edition. Both applications will provide a basic level of security against a variety of so-called malware. And they cost zero.
  怎么做:Windows用户应当下载Avast免费杀毒软件。Mac用户可以下载iAntiVirus免费版。两种应用都会提供基本级别的安全保护,抵御各类所谓的恶意软件侵害。而且它们无需花一个子儿。
GET A BETTER DEAL FROM YOUR CABLE, PHONE AND INTERNET PROVIDER Why: Because it does not take much to get them to give you free (or cheaper) services. These companies are generally indifferent to customer needs, but they are quick to cough up discounts — if you ask.
  从有线电视、电话和互联网提供商那儿得到实惠 为什么:其实用不着做什么便可让他们为你提供免费(或更便宜)的服务。这些公司一般对客户需求漠不关心,但他们会迅速提供打折服务——如果你要求的话。
How: Just call and ask — they will probably give you something. Other tactics: Measure your Internet speed, using dslreports.com/speedtest; if it is less than what you are paying for, ask for a free upgrade. Or ask to speak to the cancellation department. That usually scares them.
  怎么做:只需打电话询问——他们也许就会给你点什么。其他策略:使用dslreports.com/speedtest评估你的互联网速度;如果它达不到你所支付的带宽,要求免费升级。或者要求打电话终止服务,那通常会让他们害怕。
BUY A LOT OF CHARGING CABLES Why: Because you should never have a gadget’s battery die on you, and they are cheap. Smartphone user? Have a charging cable at the office, one in the car, and a couple at home. Laptops? Have enough chargers in the house, so you are not tethered to the den when the power runs low.
