5 Freelance Careers Where You Can Work From Home

Over 30 million people have lost their jobs in the past couple months in America alone, and a far greater number than that are currently spending the majority of their time within their homes. Many people may be wondering what skills they can develop to turn time at their computer into a productive or even lucrative activity. If that describes you, then you’ve come to the correct page!

This article will highlight five such jobs, each selected because Logical Increments has a relevant ‘big guide’ PC building article about it on our main site. Then, in the conclusion, I’ll briefly cover the next steps to take once you’ve picked a path.

Most of these tasks have a high potential to earn money for dedicated and persistent learners, but I’ll also be including one or two that should not be considered reliable paths to steady income—which I’ll mention when I come to them.

The COVID-19 Computer Hardware Availability Mini-Update

(Image originally by vperemen.)

A virus! A virus! My PC parts for a virus! Or maybe I’ve got the sentiment backwards there…

Anyway, the global pandemic is affecting all of our lives, with some of us under lockdown, and some affected directly by the virus. Let us take a moment to say that Logical Increments is not going to offer any medical advice: We are not doctors, and we are not qualified to give any medical advice. Instead, get your medical advice from the Ministry of Health, or CDC, or another qualified medical official.

But the virus is affecting the hardware marketplace in general, and Logical Increments in particular.

A New Chemical Element Has Been Discovered by a Logical Increments Team Member!

(Dr. Arjit Bheed)

At Logical Increments, our focus is helping you find the best PC parts to fit your budget. For most of us here, this is much more than a job: PC research is something we enjoy! For some of us, the love of technology is one of our lifelong pursuits.

One of our researchers recently got his PhD in physics: Meet Arjit Bheed, or should we say… Dr. Arjit Bheed? Congratulations, Arji! It will be difficult for us to get used to calling you “Dr.” Arjit after so many years of being good ol’ Arji, but we will get the hang of it!

Dr Arjit’s research shows that there is a strong potential (93.33% probability with n>=25) that there is a new element that exists between Nickel and Copper. Discovering a new element would not have mattered much in the 1800’s (when thousands of new chemical elements were being discovered), but it will be a unique event in 2020! Way to go, Dr Arjit!

March 2020 Update Feature Image

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears! Also: Greetings.

The topic of this month has been the Coronavirus epidemic, so you are probably expecting some sage advice in this update.

So please visit the official website of the Ministry of Health (or Department of Medicine, or Center of Disease Control, or etc) of your country, and follow their advice. They are professionals, and they know the best ways to deal with this.

As for us: We are professionals too, we know the best ways to buy PC parts! And this update brings changes to our main chart, mostly in the CPU column.

A Guide to Buying a 4K TV for PC Gaming

Alex

One of the best aspects of console gaming is that it’s frequently done from the comfort of a couch. With a dedicated living room gaming PC,  a dedicated Home Theater PC, or a streaming box like a Steam Link or an Nvidia Shield, you can have the same experience while PC gaming with a 4K TV.

Modern 4K TVs, however, have a few tradeoffs when compared with gaming monitors. Typically (but not always),  4K TVs have more input lag, worse viewing angles, and fewer input types than a top-of-the-line gaming PC monitor. But armed with the right information, you can find a suitable 4K TV that works as a gaming screen as well as a home theater display.

The Towering 64-Core Threadripper 3990X Update

At times there are earthquakes, and at times there are hurricanes. Volcanoes sometimes erupt, and meteors sometimes strike the earth. And when they are in the mood, sometimes AMD releases a 64-core, 128-thread consumer CPU that makes you sit up and wonder if you are in a dream. 64 cores! Sixty (60) four (4) cores (cores)!

Remember when 6-core CPUs became normal barely 2 years ago? “Haha, you foolish weaklings”, says AMD, as it unveils a CPU that is TEN TIMES more powerful. We need to send a letter to Dr. Lisa Su to inform her that this is a mistake, and it is not the year 2030 yet!
