I'm often frustrated by the dross that comes my way from people's photo albums on Facebook - I can’t understand why people would want to clog up the internet with out of focus, badly shot and repetitive photography.
Some would say I'm taking it all a little too seriously, and they'd be right of course, but I refuse to believe I'm the only one. As a result I'm speaking for all those that are too polite to say anything, those that don't want to cause a stir by suggesting that their best mate, sister or colleague just exercise some restraint with that damn upload button. Share this article, get the word out, and help to make the internet a more pleasant place.

As I know so many of you out there use Dropbox
, I thought these handy little tips to boost your capacity for free would be a godsend - they certainly were for me. If you haven't heard of Dropbox, then let me enlighten you - it's one of those things that instantly makes your life easier. The ability to simply and quickly synchronise your files between PCs within Windows Explorer and have an online backup accessible where ever you are is immensely valuable, especially if you're on the move every day.

As you’d expect, I’m often sought out by friends and family when they’ve got a PC or laptop buying decision to make - chances are many of you are too, given that you’re here on bit-tech. I don’t mind doing it of course, but I’m always intrigued by the approach some people take when buying a new computer.
The aspect that surprises me the most is the way that many of the people who have sought my advice over the years have a ‘just enough to get me by’ approach to computing - they’re only looking for a PC or laptop that will perform the tasks they do now. This is their prerogative obviously - it’s their money after all - but I’ll always challenge them on it.
