The relentless pace of high-tech innovation sometimes makes us forget about the need for mature technologies. Every PC requires a connection to the electric power grid. Even laptops need power, even if you're only charging batteries for your next road trip. But the power that comes out of our walls isn't always pure, and sometimes it's all over the map.

That's why it's a good idea to have some type of power-filtering or surge suppression device. All you need is to lose valuable data from one power surge or substantial brownout to make you a believer. The technologies and engineering behind surge suppressors and uninterruptible power supplies haven't changed all that much in the past few years, so we dug into our archives and found these two excellent articles by Winn Rosch. Winn goes into tremendous on this necessary and important topic.
