We most of us think about Pirates a few names come to mind from stories we have heard such as the most recent Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, to the infamous Blackbeard to Long John Silver (yes he was a pirate, it’s not only a fast food fish chain).

What are the benefits of virtualization? This is a question asked over on Lockergnome Q&A recently, and I thought the answers may just benefit several of you out there. Now, we know that many of you already use virtual machines. Why not leave a GOOD comment on the video, explaining to those who don’t why it is they might want to look into doing so? See how that works? We all help each other! Remember – YOU were a n00b at one time, too!

Someone in our live community recently asked what I feel the advantages – and disadvantages – are for using Google Chrome. We are talking about the web browser in this instance, not the operating system. What are YOUR thoughts? Is Chrome a good choice – or not?

Someone asked recently if I could live without my cell phone. Ten years ago, I could have. Back then, my phone wasn’t smart at all. These days, my smartphone has turned into the best computer I’ve ever had. How about you? Could you live without your phone?

Someone recently asked if I thought it was a good idea for them to buy 3D monitors at this point in time. Honestly… no, I don’t. There simply isn’t enough content out there to justify spending the money on these. Yes, they’re cool. But wait a year or two until the rest of the world catches up to the technology.

When I opened up the virtual floor for your questions (as announced on http://www.facebook.com/chrispirillo and http://twitter.com/ChrisPirillo if you’re not already following me there): one of you asked this question. What’s the value in building your own computer versus getting one off-the-shelf, pre-built?
My PCs seem to be happier if I let someone else assemble and mitigate issues before I have to face them. Sometimes, I just need to save time in life – not waste it.

I bet you might be running some kind of dock software on Microsoft Windows (RocketDock or ObjectDock). Either way, I’ve received a few emails from y’all asking what I have in my dock. I hate to disappoint, but there’s not much in it.

I’ve been through a lot of different web hosting companies in my days online. I’ve struggled with uptime issues. I’ve dealt with poor customer service. I’ve had to wind my way through the maze of service problems and back again on more occasions than I would like to count. Each company I’ve worked with has had their strong points – and their weaknesses.

It’s been a while since I last talked to you about Dropbox. It’s a service which gives you 2GB of free storage space in the cloud. You can then purchase up to 100GB of space if you wish to. The best part of Dropbox is being able to share your space with as many others as you choose. Invite people to download or add files, and even help organize them into separate folders. Don’t worry – if you accidentally delete something, Dropbox even lets you undo your oopsie from the interface.
