When windows 8 came online and users jumped on the band wagon, many were apprehensive about considering it as their main operating system, quite frankly, so was I. This thought process was born due to years of having been subjected to viruses and other forms of unwanted guests. Thankfully, Windows 8 was able to make some improvements on their new system which will give the user protection against several viruses, but your system can still be vulnerable. One of the weakest links as far as bringing in a virus is going to be the user, simply because the vast majority of viruses that come to our computer will be brought in by some action that we ourselves take.
Newer operating systems, (Windows 8 included) offer the user the necessary precautions to accept, or reject, any applications (exe.) that try to activate themselves on your system. While this will protect you from a great deal of viruses, there are other ways to get infected, and whether you realize it or not, you can instigate the charges. It may be as simple as clicking on a link, or when you visit a website, accidentally clicking the wrong download button. Depending on the kind of virus you get stuck with, there are methods available to remove it, the only question is whether or not you catch it in time
I wonder how many people actually spend their money on these expensive iPhones and iPads, then to have them broken or damaged beyond repair? I have always considered these devices to cost more money than they are worth, but I know that some people actually swear by them. I know of someone who left their iPad on top of their car and forgot it was there, then drove off and we all know what happened to that device. What about if someone dropped their iPad and the screen got cracked, and what if they failed to purchase the insurance, would the device no longer be useful to them, or will they have to spend big bucks to get it repaired?
Considering the fact that the iPad has become so valuable to us, maybe we should take out the insurance, of course that will only increase the cost of an already expensive device. It is obvious that we all have different tastes, so I would not expect my neighbor to be as thrifty as I am, although my friends have a different term for it, they just call me cheap. The way I look at it is this, if I know that there is a serious possibility that the devices I will be using are going to die, or that I am all thumbs and accident prone, I have to think in other terms. I either purchase the cheaper product, learn how to fix it myself, or take out the insurance and leave the worrying to someone else.
