By PCWorld staff
Losing weight and quitting smoking are resolutions most of us don’t keep through January. But there are ways to improve your online security, PC hardware performance and even financial bottom line that require little vigilance and just a few mouse clicks. You don’t even need to break a sweat.
Yes, you can do better in 2013. Give us just a few hours, and PCWorld can be a veritable Jillian Michaels of personal trainers for your digital life. What follows is a compendium of digital to-dos ranging from Windows security tips, hardware tune-up exercises, and money-saving best practices.
Gadget collecting is an expensive habit, so saving here and there can add up. One big drain on your wallet comes from good, old-fashioned printing. There are plenty of ways to print what you need without having to take out a second mortgage. For starters, a host of printers sip ink, saving you money, instead of guzzling expensive ink and sending you to the poor house.
If you’re having trouble kick-starting your resolution to hit the gym more, these digital New Year’s resolutions are just the right excuse to feel less guilty about sitting around the house one more day. Don’t feel bad either, resolving better PC practices is always a plus. Just don’t let us catch you go another year without backing up your hard drive or not updating your software to fend off the latest security threats.
