Credit Monitoring
Your credit is one of your most important assets in this day and age. It's also vulnerable to identity theft; credit reporting errors; and simple misunderstandings that can damage your credit and adversely impact more than just your ability to borrow money.

It's important to monitor your credit and correct any problems you can as quickly as possible. Here's how to keep tabs on your credit without getting ripped off...

Slate PCs
The fashionable Apple iPad has sparked renewed interest in a category of computers known as the "Slate PC." It may surprise you to learn that, long before the iPad appeared everywhere, there have been many makes and models of this form factor. And I'm not talking about Fred Flintstone as a technology pioneer.

Check out these current and upcoming slate PCs before you run off to the Apple store...

What Is My House Worth?
The real estate market typically heats up this time of year, so you might be thinking of buying or selling a house. The value of your house is more important than ever, given the uncertainty in the current economy, and so many homeowners facing bankruptcy or foreclosure.

These free online tools to help you determine how much your house is worth should come in handy...

Laptop Docking Station
A laptop docking station is a powered system of ports into which a laptop computer is plugged, allowing the laptop to recharge its battery and connect to various desktop devices. A docking station allows a laptop to double as a desktop computer with more resources than will fit in a shoulder bag.
