Today marks the beginning of National Procrastination Week (yes, it's real), but it also marks the beginning of our Spring coverage! Although you should be preparing yourself for some major tech Spring cleaning action, you'll want to refrain from doing any of these items on my to-do list this week while you waste time. Talk about conflicting schedules, eh? For example — who needs to update their passwords!? You were already the victim of a Twitter phishing attack, so why bother insuring that no one else can hack into your other social network accounts because of your lame password?
To see a few more examples of things you can put off till next week, just
- Set a password for your home WiFi network: I'm sure your neighbors are loving the free WiFi access since you haven't yet set a log-in password for your wireless network yet. What's another week of exposing yourself to the dangers of hacking? Go ahead — kick your feet up.
- Clean your keyboard: Germs are already accumulating on your keyboard, so seven more days of spilled lunches and crumbs can't hurt.
- Clean up your game: If your Wii controllers are out of control, you could reign them in with a controller caddy or unique media cabinet. Oh, but kick back for now. Procrastination is the name of the game.
- Clear out your hard drive: If your computer is running slow, it could be an over-stuffed hard drive that's helping to slow it down. Apps like Disk Inventory X could help you see where all that space is going, but hey, it can wait till next Monday, right?
- Purge your old gadgets: You could make way for all the new gadgets you'll be buying this year by recycling or donating the ones that are collecting dust. Or not.
- Organize your online life: Get an RSS reader already. You're wasting time by heading to each of your favorite sites individually. Well, I guess that's the point this week, right?
