Do you have updating anxiety?

"Am I ready for Mavericks?"
Do updates freak you out?

 Are you comfortable with the way your tech is working at this exact moment, so instead of updating, you prefer to forgo updates so nothing changes. 

If you answered "Yes" you might have Updating Anxiety!  Symptoms of Updating Anxiety include:
  • Possession of vastly out of date operating systems.
  • Barely functional browsers
  • Increased vulnerability to security risks
  • Difficult to troubleshoot problems
  • Increased levels of frustration and stress regarding tech related issues
  • Decreased productivity due to lower levels of functionality of apps and programs
Fear not! There is a solution, and it is just as easy as you might expect.

Let's bust out a blow-torch of knowledge and thaw your tech from the state of deep freeze you have put it into.  With Mavericks being released to the campus, there is probably no better time to update your operating system, and while you're doing some spring updating, you might as well update your apps (including Mobile Learn), and browsers!

Once you meet your anxiety head-on, you're going to feel better about the technology you use on a day to day basis.

Here's a quick guide on how to update operating systems:

Updating Operating Systems

Mac OSX and Mac App updates:
  • Click the "Apple" button on the top-left corner of the screen
  • Click "About this Mac"
  • Click "Software Update"
  • Click on specific updates or just click "Update All"
Windows Updates:
  • Click the "Start" button
  • Type "Windows Update" in the "Search Programs and Files" field. 
  • On the left side of this screen, click "Check for Updates."
  • Once the scan completes, install the updates.
