Your Computer IS Infected

I don’t care if you’re using Windows, OS X or Linus – your computer is most definitely infected. The dangerous thing is that you can become infected, as well. You wouldn’t go around rubbing your fingers all over a public toilet, would you? Charles Gerba, a Microbiologist, has concluded that every toilet seat has about 49 germs per square inch. Your keyboard, however, has nearly three thousand of the little buggers within every square inch. Why the heck are you still touching that thing?

You cannot avoid these germs, but you can definitely prevent them. There are a ton of inexpensive anti-bacterial products on the market which will not harm your computer equipment… use them. It will only cost you a few bucks, which is much better than several hundred dollars spent at the doctor.

Bacteria can be good, but too much of it can be bad. If you work in an office, or have to be out in public places where you aren’t sure what you may be touching… this little gadget is for you.

The UV Disinfectant Wand will help you kill germs for about $80.00. It’s super compact and easy to use. It’s safe to disinfect nearly anything you can think of, from your cell phone to your keyboard.

You like to take care of yourself – popping vitamin-c and zinc powerups, and rocking the ecchinacia, but there’s only so much you can do to shore up your own defenses. These microscopic nasties keep getting more and more vicious. Thankfully, technology keeps pace, and let you go on the offense, and kill some germs.

Pull out this sleek pearl clamshell – is it a cell-phone? No! Intense ultra-violet radiation emanates from a lens on the face, killing 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on your mouse, keyboard, phone, action-figures, what have you!

I gotta thank ThinkGeek for helping me disinfect my office. I’d recommend doing this at least once a week. Anything you think could be crawling with junk and germs needs to be disinfected. Stay healthy!
