Maingear is primarily known as a system integrator that puts together custom high performance desktop and laptop computers. For those looking at a mid-tier desktop, they have options which some of the other high end companies seem to lack. The F131 is one of the company’s oldest product names and it has been redesigned multiple times. Now it has been packaged with a very reasonable $800 starting price tag with very unique looking system. Does this system offer a solid alternative to the name brand systems? Find out in my review of the Maingear F131 FM2 Stock desktop.

Shared Photo Albums Are Coming to Facebook

Anyone with a Facebook account has probably experienced the joy of logging in to Facebook and seeing their News Feed plastered with newly uploaded individual photo albums from friends the day after attending a social event. But for some reason, shared photo albums on Facebook haven’t become a thing until now.

Mashable reported on Monday that Facebook users will soon be able to create shared photo albums with up to 50 contributing friends. Each contributor will be allowed to upload a maximum of 200 photos each, meaning that shared photo albums should hold up to 10,000 photos.

Of course, privacy settings will still be manageable on shared photo albums. Albums can be shared with the public, with the friends of each contributor, or just with the contributors themselves.

Facebook has already begun rolling out the new shared photo album feature across English user accounts on Facebook for desktop, and will expand to its roll out to international accounts thereafter.

As of May 2013, it’s been estimated that over 200,000 photos are uploaded to Facebook every minute.

Lenovo IdeaCentre K450 Desktop PC

Lenovo’s Updated K Series Consumer Desktop

Lenovo is not very well known for their consumer desktop systems. The IdeaCentre K desktops are the performance lineup for the company. With the release of the 4th generation of Intel Core i processor, the company refreshed their K series with a new model that has the same basic look as the past one but different internals. Does this new processor give the system a completely new feel or is it just a minor refresh? Find out in my review of the Lenovo IdeaCentre K450 desktop.

Intel’s 4th generation Core i processors have been on the market for a while but only the mid to high range models are available. Availability of the processors has improved and more mid-range desktops have been released. Among these is a prebuilt system available through NewEgg for under $900 from iBUYPOWER. With a price tag of $900 it certainly seems like an affordable option for those wanting a PC gaming system but does it provide enough for decent gaming? Find out in my review of the iBUYPOWER Gamer Power NE704i gaming desktop.

Solid state drives are becoming much more common in laptops computers thanks to their low power consumption and compact size and Intel’s requirements for ultrabook classifications. Desktop systems still rely mainly on hard drives for their storage even though they offer less performance. HP is looking to change this by including a dedicated solid state drive in their latest ENVY line of desktop computers. This is a welcome change but did HP sacrifice a lot of other features just for this storage performance? Find out in my review of the HP ENVY 700-060 desktop computer.

Western Digital External Hard Drive

Now that we practically live our lives  in the digital world, it’s even more important that we make sure we have trustworthy backups of all our digital files. After a recent painful process of having the hard drive on my desktop PC crash (I did have a backup, but it look a long time to reconstruct my files), I’ve invested in a new external hard drive.

I’m now using the Western Digital My Passport Essential 1 TB Portable External Hard Drive for local backups of all my computers. So far (it’s only been a few months), I’m very impressed with this drive. It’s small, fast, light, easy-to-use, and reliable. I would definitely recommend the Western Digital My Passport Essential 1 TB external drive to any business traveler that wants to ensure the safety of their data before a trip. Read my full review of the Western Digital My Passport external hard drive for all the details

Dell’s Updated XPS Desktop

Dell has made some significant changes in their XPS desktop lineup over the years. While it was originally a gaming computer, this changed to a general performance desktop after the purchase of Alienware. The XPS 8700 is the latest of the systems and is based around the new 4th generation Intel Core i processor. It is available in a wide range of configurations and options but today I’m taking a look at one of the more affordable versions priced around $800. Is this a solid performance desktop for those that don’t necessarily want to use their PC for gaming? Find out in my review of the Dell XPS 8700 desktop.

So, what kind of graphics processor should you get? Find out more in my guide to selecting a desktop PC video card.

Enter time and billing information on the go with FreshBooks mobile app for Android.

FreshBooks Releases Android App

Enter time and billing information on the go with FreshBooks mobile app for Android.When I wrote Online Accounting Software for the Self Employed a few months back, I was disappointed that there was no Android app for FreshBooks because it has pretty much everything else a small business or one-person business needs to keep the books.  Well, my disappointment is gone. FreshBooks announced several hours ago that the new Android app is ready and available in the Google Play Store, and I’ve updated my FreshBooks info to reflect this change.

Like the iPhone app, the Android app lets FreshBooks online accounting software customers create invoices, enter expenses with snapshot of receipts and track time.  You can learn about the apps on the FreshBooks Mobile page.
