The Best Chromebook | May 2020

Tired of your old and heavy laptop? Is your desktop computer slowing down and out-of-date? It may be time to get yourself a Chromebook laptop. Chromebooks are light, portable and won’t drain your bank account. Chromebooks are different from your typical laptop computers that run Windows or Mac operating systems. Chromebooks use Google’s Chrome OS, which was created from the Linux operating system. Chrome OS differentiates itself from the competition by running only web-based applications.

Chromebooks hit the market in 2011 and have continued to grow in popularity today as a popular choice in schools across the country.

Chromebooks tend to be lighter and have better battery life than other laptops. While a Chromebook can’t do everything, it’s a good option if you plan to use your computer to browse social media, watch shows on Netflix or Hulu and use the stable of Google applications like Gmail, Google Docs and

Why Is My Internet So Slow? What Can I Do to Fix It?

Stop Background Programs That Hog Bandwidth

Some software applications, like Windows Update and other software updaters, run background processes that are hidden behind other apps or minimized to the system tray, where they quietly consume network resources. Unlike worms, these applications are designed to do useful work and should not be removed from the device.

Games and other programs that work with video require significant bandwidth and therefore, when running, will limit bandwidth that’s available for other apps. It’s easy to forget that things like these are running. Check your computer for background network activity as you troubleshoot the slow network.

But don’t forget other network activity that could be impacting overall bandwidth. Even if they’re not communicating directly with each other, things like a smart TV streaming movies, a camera constantly relaying HD video, and smart speakers playing music, can make everything on the network slow.

Miss. appeals court strikes down law against causing injury through internet or computer

A Jackson, Miss., defendant convicted for causing injury to another with his Facebook Live videos had his conviction reversed by an appeals court, which ruled that the underlying Mississippi law was unconstitutionally overbroad. 

William Edwards, a self-described “community activist fighting crime and corruption,”had a verbal conflict with Roderick Richardson, a local pastor, at a gym. Richardson apparently confronted Edwards about his support for a particular mayoral candidate. 

Displeased with the confrontation, Edwards started a live video on the Facebook page of “The Cipher,” Edwards’ “liberal action committee.”  Edwards accused Richardson of sexual misconduct with a member of Richardson’s church. Edwards also said he would show Richardson “what real beef looks like.” 

Edwards made two other videos, once referring to Richardson as an “undercover homosexual,” and later accused Richardson of conspiring in a sexual-misconduct lawsuit against a university. Richardson denied the allegations and said he viewed the
