Default Computer geek help

Well over the last year i've decided that when I go to college i want to major in computers. So I've been honing my computer geekness. Then i figured why not get more help from a site ran and posted on by computer users?

So what are good computer sites? Like to keep myself updated on current parts, stories, tips and the what not.

Good books? Mags? And that sort.

I'm thinking about majoring in Computer Engineering. I don't think the hardcore programming is for me. So of you majors of CE, what would be some good things to know for me to get a "foot in the door" for this major? What did you learn in that class and the such.

Any any other advice would be awesome and helpful.

well, all I can say is that come here more often and read a lot of stuff from the software & hardware section. And of course help people at the same time.
This place is where I've learned most of my computer stuff.

If you are looking for a good computer magazine, check out Smart Computing. THey reiew things, have tutorials for some things, and go over some problems their customers are having with their computers and how to solve them.

If you check those sites regularly, you'll eventually know everything you'd want to about hardware.
