I was a guest on the Morning Blend this week as part of our weekly Compute This!  TV segment.  On the show the hosts asked me how you can safely dispose of old tablets and computers so your personal data does not get into the hands of criminals.

As we use tablets and phones for online bill paying, banking and more, they are jam packed with personal information that can’t be easily deleted.  Watch the segment below for more information!

    Thanks for sharing the video segment Thor. It must be exciting being on television like this. This is important information because I do think that even though some things can seem like they have been deleted from your laptop you can never be too sure.

    Another cool TV appearance, Thor. You’re quite a natural on TV. On the topic, it is definitely a very important one. Many people throw away their computing devices without giving a second thought about the risk of unwanted elements getting access to their discarded data.

    Nice video shared. Now I know finally the correct way to dispose my tablet. Previously I never bother to do so as I used to think that it is troublesome.
