Overheating tech is bad news, and we all have one or two things in our house that doesn't get enough airflow, such as an an Xbox, a DVD player or a constantly failing router. If you don't want to buy a cooling rack just to stick it in your entertainment centre, weblog Apartment Therapy notes that a baking rack will do the trick just fine.
This is a pretty obvious one: a cooling rack is good for cooling more than just baked goodies, but if you haven't actually put this tip into practice, it's a good reminder to take a look around your living room and see which of your gadgets might be a little too hot. Focus on things that don't have rubber feet or are stacked on top of one another. If it feels hot and it's been having problems, stick a cooling rack under it to give it a bit more airflow. It can fix all sorts of problems, including a router that you need to reset every few days.
