Clean Up Your Computer

Submitted by on January 9, 2012 – 8:09 am

Profile AmericaProfile America — Monday, January 9th. The beginning of a new year is traditionally the time for a fresh start — getting things organized both at home and at work. That’s why this is National Clean-Off-Your-Desk Day. Experts say that the average person uses just 20 percent of the stuff on their desk to accomplish 80 percent of their work. Noting that a messy computer is less obvious than a messy desk and how important computers are in the modern home and workplace, it’s also National Clean Up Your Computer Month. More than three-quarters of U.S. adults use a computer either at home or on the job, and the same proportion use the Internet. Sending e-mails, getting maps or driving instructions, watching videos, and buying a product online are the most common computer uses. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at <www.census.gov>.
