Nursing Informatics - When we are busy working with so many computer stuff and other Nursing Informatics related work sometimes it is very stressful when our laptops or PC suddenly lags.  Of course we are not that expert that  we can easily identify the cause of it and most of us would blame on viruses and other important programs that we installed, but we can't easily uninstall. So the final verdict is we keep pushing ourselves to buy a new PC or Laptop.  So should we replace our Dual Cores or I3 Laptops to I7 or Core 2 Quad Laptops for our simple document or spreadsheet processing needs?  Actually I always laugh when I see some users who keep blaming there laptops resources for the lags, but eventually there are ways to fix it in a simple way that you don't need an expert to do the job.  Powerful processors are intended for huge processing jobs such as working with multimedia and sophisticated programming projects, but if your task is just simply accessing programs and doing some word processing and spreadsheet jobs your dual core laptop with 1-2 gig ram can handle it, if it's slow then here are the possible reasons:

1. So many unwanted programs running
2. Your hard disk is full or close to that -  transfer some of your files to Portable hard drive, clean your Temp Folder in Drive C: - Better run Disk Cleanup (Accessories/System tools)
3. Stop running Windows Aero - it eats your resources
4. Some windows applications are having bad sectors and data loss -  Better run Defragmenter ( Accessories/System tools)
5. Disable the use of Windows 7 theme

People now a days are wishing to own an Iphone, even if they are holding blackberry and or Android phones. The question is why? If it's the feature they want, almost all phones these days can do anything as Iphones. With the advent of Android nothing is impossible for other brands to develop phones that could level or kill Iphone. According to statistics, Android phones can do better than Iphones and Android phones goes with different brands, so that means lots of styles and taste you can count on to. But still when you ask a lady for a birthday gift or a guy for a present during Christmas they keep shouting - "Iphone!"

Iphones are the hotcakes in the market for over 5 years already and it seems nothing can stop Apple from making their Iphones more advance than other handheld devices of its kind. Apple Co. have revolutionized handheld devices that forced other cellphone companies to re-evaluate their ambition to compete with Apple's Iphone. Luckily Android OS came along to give other cellphone companies the strength to face the popular Iphone and what is interesting seems these companies are working hard to surpass the capabilities of Iphones. So the question is why Android Phones are better than Iphone? Let's check it out the list.

Best Quotes of Steve Jobs

“When you’re young, you look at television and think, There’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth.” [Wired, February 1996]


“I’m an optimist in the sense that I believe humans are noble and honorable, and some of them are really smart. I have a very optimistic view of individuals. As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. And I remain extremely concerned when I see what’s happening in our country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don’t seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids.” [Wired, February 1996]


“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]

“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already nothing to wear. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”


“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.” [NBC Nightly News,

"The design and aesthetics of a device were as important as the hardware and software inside." - Steve Jobs

Free Software for Nursing Informatics Class: "Nurses who are into Informatics would connect technology in their profession, such as doing data management while they perform their more primary duties of caring for patients. Some nurses think that Informatics will increase their work loads in the hospital, well that is not true."
