Open an Online Savings Account
A reader asks: "I've heard that online banks offer much better interest rates, but all the accounts I've found so far have pitifully low rates. Why are interest rates so low, and are there any online savings accounts that offer higher yields?" A lot of people are seeking the elusive online savings account that pays "high yields." It's out there somewhere, rumor has it.

Here's what to look for when opening an online savings account, and where to find the best rates...

Buying an All-In-One Printer
An all-in-one printer performs four classic office functions: printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. One obvious benefit is that you don't have to buy, service and find desk space for all four machines. There are both pros and cons to all-in-one printers, and some factors to look at when shopping for one.

Here's what you should know before buying an all-in-one, and a few of my top picks for your home or office...

Antispam Software / Spam Filters
Your Internet service provider promises to block spam, but still you get plenty of unwanted emails. What can be done to stop the flood of spam? One solution is to add additional layers of defense to your inbox. There are dozens of antispam software programs on the market, and techniques you can use to filter spam according to your own criteria.

Here are some of the best anti-spam solutions...

Online Video Rental
Online film rental is a service that lets you rent video media online and have it delivered to you. The films you rent may be delivered on DVD or Blu-Ray discs, but online film rentals can also take other forms. Getting a DVD in the mail is fine, but it's a far cry from the instant gratification that the Internet offers. Streaming video and instant downloads allow you to rent a video online and watch it on your computer or mobile device.

But there are some potential gotchas. Here's the scoop on renting videos online...

Which CPU is Best?
Choosing a CPU used to be easy. The fastest clock speed you could afford was the best buy, period. A 750 MHz CPU was better than 433 MHz no matter who made either chip. But now there are many performance-enhancing technologies in CPUs, and a bewildering array of choices. Should you buy Intel, AMD or does brand even matter?

Discover what factors to consider when choosing a CPU, and what kind I recommend for most users...
