info-tech experts need to know.

These pieces of information (or Technology Hacks as folks in the info-tech circle would term it), if properly applied at when due, can salvage dire situations which (without this knowledge) would have normally caused us to either spend some extra money or discard our gadgets altogether or maybe go through some very uncomfortable form of stress in trying to get it all right.

 Listed in this article are twelve well-researched Technology Hacks for everyone to be in knowledge of. 


You may call these pieces of information First-Layer-Nerd-Tutorials but it does not take too much brainpower to apply the underlisted Technology Hacks effectively to whatever situation or circumstances that warrant their application.

12 MUST-KNOW TECHNOLOGY HACKS

1. Storing batteries in the freezer can double their lifespan.
