I've been messing around with computers since the 80's, starting with the Radio Shack TRS-80 and commodore Vic 20. I'm a Mac user these days but I spent the first 25 years of so of my computing time sitting in front of a Windows machine. From 3.1 through 95, 98, 2000, Vista (ugh), XP, 7, etc., I've installed software, hardware, drivers, repaired countless virus-riddled machines, configured tons of devices, such as Palm Pilots, Blackberry pagers, cell phones, MP3 players - you name it.
What I've found is that most people buy a machine that has more than enough basic computing power, but was not built with enough memory or cluttered up with unnecessary software, mostly provided by companies that paid Microsoft to include it! Clearing out that junk and trimming your computer down to get it to quickly do the stuff that you need it to is where I come in.
I'll configure your machine for optimal performance, get you on a regular backup schedule, set up interoperability between your computer and your mobile device and generally make your computer headaches go away.
- Memory upgrades
- Backup drive/online backup implementation
- Complete system wipe/OS reinstall (for total virus removal)
- iOS device interoperability setup
- Printer/scanner installation
- Networking configuration
iOS Device Interoperability
I'm always amazed at how few of my clients and people I speak with know about Apple devices' potential for interoperability. Did you know you can have your iPhone, iPad an Mac ring when a phone call comes in? Of course! Text and iMessages on your Mac? No problem! Are your sharing calendars between devices? You should be!
Additionally, most of the devices I've encountered are not being backed up regularly. There are a few changes to the basic Mac settings that I can help you with that will pay off big time if you should ever lose or damage a device.
