Tips & Tricks: Android Device Manager

Losing your phone is a part of life. Sometimes it’s just until you’ve dug around in your duvet after you’ve fallen asleep, and others it’s because you’ve left it on the train (guilty).

The Android Device Manager allows you to track your phone from your PC, even letting you ring it if it’s currently in silent mode, so you can find it in your house quickly. If the worst happens, you can also erase your data remotely to protect yourself.

Tech Terms: Dedicated Server

A dedicated server is a single computer in a network reserved for serving the needs of the network. For example, some networks require that one computer be set aside to manage communications between all the other computers. A dedicated server could also be a computer that manages printer resources. Note, however, that not all servers are dedicated. In some networks, it is possible for a computer to act as a server and perform other functions as well.
In the Web hosting business, a dedicated server is typically a rented service. The user rents the server, software and an Internet connection from the Web host.
