A powerful earthquake hit Costa Rica in Central America, killing at least three and injuring many others.

The quake measure 6.1 on the Richter scale, meaning it was a very strong earthquake capable of being extremely destructive.

Tremors from the quake triggered a huge landslide northwest of the capital city, San Jose.

It cut off electricity in parts of San Jose and officials said there was lots of damage to houses and roads.

    Really, the best way to speed up your computer significantly is to purchase an SSD (like a Samsung 840 Evo). It replaces your normal HDD - and it seriously makes the world of difference! Once you go SSD, you'll never want to go back! And as well as removing unneeded things off your PC - cleaning the dust out of it (and replacing thermal paste - but unless you're experienced with computer hardware, get someone who knows what they're doing to do it) will help keep the machine cool and not do a thing called "Thermal Throttling" (which is when the CPU, GPU, etc. decrease the power they can deliver to save themselves from overheating. Cleaning the dust and keeping your PC/Mac clean inside will not only result in lower temperatures, but will help increase the life of the machine. And as we know, a clean computer is a happy computer!  :)
