How to prolong your laptop battery

Battery is one of the most crucial part in a laptop. A laptop really depends on the battery ability to operate it. Are you still not satisfied with your battery usage hours? Besides its own capacity limitation, it also could be affected due to some common mistakes often not realized by the users themselves. Here I list some tips which can be used to prolong your battery usage hours:

1. Lower contrast and brightness

- Though LCD is a power-efficient device, but set too high on contrast and brightness can drastically shorten the usage hours.

2. Close programs that run in the background
- iTunes, Desktop Search, etc. All these add to the CPU load and cut down battery life. Close everything that isn’t crucial when you’re on battery.

3. Run off a hard drive rather than CD/DVD
- Do you know that CD/DVD drive actually consume more power than a hard drive? They spin, take power, even when they are not actively being used.

4. Exercise the Battery
- Do not leave a charged battery dormant for long periods of time. Once charged, you should use the battery at least once every two to three weeks. Also, do not let a Li-On battery completely discharge.

5. Keep operating temperature down
- Your laptop operates more efficiently when it’s cooler. Clean out your air vents with a cloth or keyboard cleaner.

6. Set up and optimize your power options
- Go to ‘Power Options’ in your windows control panel and set it up so that power usage is optimized (Select the ‘max battery’ for maximum effect).

7. Don’t multitask
- Do one thing at a time when you’re on battery. Rather than working on a spreadsheet, letting your email client run in the background and listening to your latest set of MP3’s, set your mind to one thing only. If you don’t you’ll only drain out your batteries before anything gets completed!

Limit The Programs that Run on Startup
Even if you only have a few program windows open, you may have dozens of programs running in the background. Most commonly, this occurs when you have programs that are set to run on startup. In some cases, such as anti-virus scanners this can be useful, while in other cases, such as photo editing tools, it’s unnecessary.
Increase Your Computer’s RAM
Adding more physical memory to your PC will help speed up startup and run-times, while limiting the potential complications that arise when running complex programs. When your system runs out of physical RAM capacity, it reverts to virtual RAM from your hard disk which is much slower and more cumbersome. Today, additional RAM is quite affordable and can make a world of difference in your OS speed.

Wolfram Alpha v Google: Which is better?

Wolfram Alpha is designed to answer complex search queries by returning a single result. Unlike Google, which searches the entire web for the keywords contained within a search query and then returns thousands of relevant web pages, Wolfram Alpha aims to understand the question and return the correct answer by mining its vast database of information and statistics.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Wolfram Alpha excels when it is presented with queries pertaining to specific statistics, equations or quantifiable mathematic data. The response from web users has been mixed, with some praising Wolfram Alpha for its powerful search capabilities, and others left disappointed by the answers it has returned.
