George asks…

Is there such thing as overdressing for a job interview? Would a boss feel jealous and not give a job if you.?

Show up in an Armani suit, or wearing Gucci shoes and hundred dollar shirt?

Or would dressing in my most expensive clothes help me get the job?

steve answers:

I am a former chef and did hire in some places and there all correct, if you look to good they may feel your only there for the short term and if you applying for a service position and go in to well dressed then you may not even get considered, there are alot of factor.

For a man a nice dress shirt, tie or no, nice pants and shoes, well groomed, not tattoos showing or piercing, no alot of jewellery, the same for the young lady’s, nice dress or blouse and skirt shoes, nice makeup, none of the other issues, leave your other image outside.

If you going to be a waiter or waitress, go for a drink or lunch see how the place operates and what they do to serve there customers.

Michael asks…

Do they make designer shoes for babies?

My little sister is about 3-4 months old and I want to buy her some designer shoes. Like Gucci shoes, Coach or even UGGS or vans. Do they make them for babies that are about 4 months old? if so, please direct me to a website.

steve answers:

Uggs, yes. The rest, no, you have to wait until they are a bit older. About a year.

And why would you want to buy a baby designer shoes? I’m sure there are better things to buy for them, and it’s a waste of money. I doubt they notice. Save the designer duds for when they start to care.

Your Questions About Tablets Computers

Mandy asks…

I dropped my tablet computer. Is there anyway to get the scratch off?

I dropped my tablet computer. Is there anyway to get the scratch off? or should I return it if I have a guarantee on it?

steve answers:

First of all you a flip cover can protect your phone. I don’t think any company will give you warranty on scratch.

Ken asks…

Can you tell me the name of a specific program for designing flow charts and websites for tablet PC?

A few years ago, I found a link on Metafilter to a free program for quickly designing websites. The user would sketch rough pages and draw in some connections, and the program would dynamically generate a working version of that page. I remember that it was designed specifically to work on tablet computers and that it was free; I think its name might have started with a D and was one fairly short word. I uninstalled it by mistake and have been regretting it ever since. Do you know the program I’m talking about? And if not, do you know of a similar one, hopefully also free?

steve answers:


Richard asks…

Is it possible to connect a tablet to my DIAL UP service on my home PC?

If not, what’s the least expensive broadband or wi-fi I can get with a tablet computer?
Edit to Mike: That’s what I wanted to know……if a tablet had a phone jack or not. Sounds like not.

steve answers:

I know of no tablet that has a dialup modem. Or even a wired network jack. That kind of defeats the reason for having a tablet.
Any Wi-fi will work with a tablet. Cheapest one will be the free Wi-fi at the coffee shop. If you want Wi-fi at your house, then the cheapest will be DSL added to your land line.

Chris asks…

Tablet versus Laptop poll: Do you prefer tablets or laptops, and how fast do you type?

I can’t stand tablet computers because I normally type about 70 wpm and can’t stand 1-finger hunt and peck on that crappy little screen. I require a full keyboard.

Your thoughts?
My theory is that people who type very well prefer to have a full keyboard, while those who are not strong typists go for the tablets because they notice much less of a trade-off in terms of functionality.

steve answers:

Laptop and i’m a pretty fast typer, i learned proper typing when i was a child using an actualy typewriter

Robert asks…

steve answers:

My Tablet computer help me every time. Like, after office, at home, business, client meeting.and friends contact.

Your Questions About Ati Mobility Radeon Hd 4250 Graphics Gaming

Mandy asks…

Would this laptop be alright for gaming?

The laptop I’m currently using for gaming really sucks, only because of the graphics card (Intel (R) HD graphics). I found a used laptop on ebay that I am considering buying, since it seems to be better than mine, but I am unsure if it would be a good buy. It is an HP ProBook 6455b Phenom II, with a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD4250 Video graphics card. If it can’t run things on high settings or even medium settings that’s fine. It can run everything on the lowest settings imaginable, as long as it can run it with minimal lag. I’m not intending to play games that are more graphic-intense (like Skyrim for example). I just want to be able to play the games I got on steam, such as The Stanley Parable or Rogue Legacy, or even TF2 (my laptop crashes even when playing this). So how would this laptop do?

Here is a link to the laptop in question. It has a lot more details that I didn’t mention here; http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-ProBook-6455b-Phenom-II-Dual-Core-2-8GHz-4GB-320GB-ATI-HD-4250-Gaming-Laptop-/271357689446?pt=Laptops_Nov05&hash=item3f2e2dbe66

steve answers:

That will play the games mentioned above no problem.

Charles asks…

What games can my laptop play?

I have a Dell Inspiron M5010. Here are the specs:

AMD Athlon II P320 2.1 GHz 15.6″
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit pre-installed w/CoA
AMD Athlon II P320 2.1 GHz dual-core processor Supports HyperTransport 3.0 technology
3 GB DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM 320 GB hard drive DVD RW Drive No floppy drive
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250/HD 550v graphics processor

Give me a list of games I can play instead of telling me to go to System Requirements Lab please. Thanks!

steve answers:

You can play:
Modern Warfare series
Counter strike 1.6 and Source
Battlefield 2
Battlefield 3 on low stinks
Counter strike global strike on low settings
Crysis 2 on super-low settings.
Starcraft 1 and 2.
Probably all of the strategy games.
All online games.
All flash games.
There are hundreds more, but it will be too much so I just put down famous games.

Maria asks…

Can I update the graphics card on this laptop?

Its an HP Probook 6455b. I have my eyes on it online and ill use it for some gaming, work, etc. and can it play games like runescape, world of warcraft on lowest or mid settings, drakensang online, and dark souls, battlefield 3 with the current graphics card or if i can update it to a more better AMD or nvidia?
Processor: AMD Phenom II DualCore 2.8 GHz
Graphics: Dedicated ATI Mobility Radeon Hd 4250
4GB Ram upgradeable to 8GB
320GB HDD 7200 RPM

And what card should i upgrade it to if its possible, like the best card it can support?
Also is it possible to change the processor??

steve answers:

No, and no.

Go to the HP website and look for the “maintainence manual”. It’ll show you what’s the max available.

Your Questions About Asus Netbook

Ruth asks…

Should I purchase an Asus 1015bx Netbook?

Hello everybody
Here’s the netbook I’m looking at right now:


I’ve read some reviews about this laptop having a grainy screen, I’m not sure how grainy is grainy but I’m an aesthetic so I’m a little hesitant to buy this laptop now knowing that there’s going to be an issue with the graphics.

Could anybody talk me through how grainy the screen is?

Thanks in advance.

steve answers:

I have an acer netbook with the same screen resolution (1024×600), and I’ve never noticed anything grainy about it when watching movies or doing some light photo editing. Sure, you’re not going to get super HDTV quality picture or a “retina” quailty screen, but hey, it’s only $300.

Lisa asks…

Asus 1001 PDX netbook?

I want to buy a new netbook.Could i play games on Asus 1001 PDX?

steve answers:

This netbook was not made for gaming, it would play very simple games only…

Charles asks…

MSI U180 vs ASUS X101 (netbooks)?

They are the same price.
Which one do you think is better?





steve answers:

Both are contain same feature. But the ASUS brand is good brand.
So I think ASUS X101 is better than MSI U180.

Laura asks…

my asus netbook won’t charge?

Hey there,

I have an Asus EEE PC 900 netbook and it stopped charging one day. I replaced the battery and it still didn’t charge, Went out and got a universal netbook 40 w univeral charger from maplins after they tested my charger and it didn’t work. Got it home and tried all the tips, even with the ones that fit perfectly, still didn’t charge.
Could it be the netbook itself, or do I just need to try more tips?

steve answers:

The component which is generically called the Plug, Jack or DC In Port. It is a modular part and usually referred to as the DC in Board in service manuals or tech sites.. It is likely that this little circuit has failed. It is replaceable but pricey if the netbook is taken to a professional service center. The cost could equal half the value of a new netbook. Shop around if taking it to a pro.

The bottom panel of the netbook must be removed and DC in Board will be accessible. It is held in place by2 screws and a tiny plug to the motherboard. This setup may vary slightly depending on manufacturer but basically the same on most machines. Great caution has to be exercised not to damage the motherboard when disassembling the netbook.

If you decide to attempt the repair yourself. Download a copy of the netbook’s service manual. They are free ( some sites will try to get you to pay or make an account–search around–they are available freely with no strings attached ) and usually in PDF format. Search using the model name, number and keywords “service manual”.

Good Luck.

Mary asks…

Is this asus netbook a good bargain?

I’m currently looking for a new Laptop, because mine is getting really slow & the screen freezes a lot. I’ve set my eyes on the Asus F201E-KX065DU
I’ve done some research and it has generally become pretty good reviews. I’m 17 and I mainly use my computer for office and Internet.

The only thing I need to know is, do you think this is a good deal? I’ve found it for about 300 euros (I live in Germany), and I think that’s a pretty good deal. I don’t have a lot of money to buy a new one so that’s a plus that it’s so cheap. Also, generally I’m not very good with electronics, they always seem to get problems pretty fast, so I don’t want to spend a lot of money.

It’s also important for me that it’s easy to carry around, and seeing as it’s a netbook I’m guessing it is. The laptop I have now is quite big and I can’t fit it in any of my bags, which is really annoying.

But do you think it’s maybe a little too small? Or do you think it’s a good bargain and I should go for it?

Thanks :)

steve answers:

Though, in my opinion, there are better ones out there for 300 Euros, but then, once you’ve “set your eyes” on that laptop, its difficult to convince you to buy something else. =P

For the ASUS F201E…
If you’re planning to use it mainly for office work and surfing the web, then it should be fine.
Gaming is not impossible on the laptop as long as you don’t overexert it: you can play some web-browser games or few flash games.
You should have proper maintenance for your PC in order to keep it running at its max performance.
Even a very fast laptop/Desktop can become slow if it doesn’t have proper maintenance.
It is small and light therefore easy to carry around. If there are many positive reviews of that laptop, then why not just buy it?
