Create Time By Upgrading Your Computers

Have you always wondered what your employees would do with their spare time at work if they had it?

Why are your employees losing valuable time at work? Is it because the computer they have to use is sitting on a desk on the other side of the warehouse?

  1. Expose it to elements. If you’ve ever left your smartphone out in the hot sun to bake or let it freeze in the winter, you probably know that it automatically shuts off. Well, the same goes for tablets, and it’s extremely damaging. Leaving your tablet out in the sun can cause it to overheat, which is much worse than leaving it out in the cold. Tablets tend to automatically shut down when they reach temperatures of -40 degrees or 113 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Rooting tablets. Have you ever heard of rooting a smartphone? Rooting is a technique used to gain access to the root of your device. This means that you will enhance your devices privileges. Well, the same goes for tablets. They can be rooted, but improper rooting can break the device, leaving it useless. So, if you’re going to root something, root carefully because you could easily end up breaking your not-so-tough tablet.
