eHow Website Review

eHow is a website filled with articles about matters related to topics ranging from family to style. It is a venue for users to share ideas about different lifestyles, family, style and other related matters. It is basically a website dedicated to home improvement and the overall betterment of you and your family. The site also contains various instructions for home maintenance and repair, Personal Finance, Plant care and many other articles that are assumed to be of interest to users.

The site makes sure that its content is timely and articles are always relevant to the present context. It is not limited to lifestyle instructions, though, because when I dove deeper into what the site had to offer I found that it had very in-depth instructions on how to hack the Sony PSP. For a site designed to look so classy and stylish, I was surprised to find that the site included instructions on how to unbrick a PSP with a TA-008V4 motherboard. I am not saying that the site’s deceptive appearance is a bad thing because it is the content that matters in the end. I delved even deeper and looked at the article on unbricking a PSP. I found that each step was exactly one paragraph each. However, I also found that despite the thorough explanation of each step, download links are not given. This is pretty much because the site does not want to be held liable for assisting in illegal activities. Despite this, the instructions were enough for me to understand fully what I needed to do, and the site described clearly what kind of programs I needed to search for. eHow encourages you to use your ingenuity to solve your problems.

What I like about the site is that it doesn’t require you to pay for full subscription; it is all free, and it is all there. It does lack some useful elements like pictures and videos for every step, but the site sufficiently describes the steps so that if you don’t understand something you can just search the web for additional information. Videos really aren’t that much of a problem as well, considering that there are sites like Youtube if you need to see what it is that you need. eHow is also full of advice about a host of things So if you’re looking for a second opinion on how you should decorate your home or you need more information about how to cook the perfect spaghetti, it’s all on eHow.
