Fields Data Recovery – Fraud! Avoid at all costs!

by admin on Aug 24th in Uncategorized

As a company that deals often with data recovery solutions, we have had dealings with many different companies.  When a critical drive recently needed recovery, we found a new player in the game and decided to give them a try.  Fields Data Recovery had a wonderful website and it said all the right things.  We […]

WiFi Woes…Plume to the Rescue!

by admin on Nov 15th in Uncategorized

As a company that frequently installs networks in homes, small businesses, churches, and schools, we often run into the issue of weak wifi signals, or ‘dead spots’.  In the past we have dealt with it in multiple ways.  We have used PowerLine (using a building’s electrical system to distribute data) adapters to get the network […]

Home Internet Filters/Controls – Updated as of June, 2017

by admin on Aug 19th in Uncategorized

June 12, 2017 Update: Well, at this point I am officially jumping on the Roqos bandwagon.  I have now had the unit for a month or two, and have found it to be very simple to use, easy to configure, and the tech support is very responsive.  Their rather aggressive roadmap for future features is […]

SkyDog vs. iBoss: Battle of the Internet Filters – This is all moot point, since SkyDog is gone, and iBoss is really bad…

by admin on Feb 10th in Hardware Recommendations

Edit: Unfortunately, the makers of SkyDog has been acquired by Comcast, and at this point has no intention of continuing the SkyDog service (beyond the three year subscription).  Another very sad example of  wonderful technology getting gobbled up by large conglomerates whose sole purpose is to  steal off the technology/patents and let the actual product […]

Exciting Hard Drive Data Recovery Option

by admin on Aug 18th in Hardware Issues, Troubleshooting

Having been in computer repair for nearly 25 years, the most difficult thing to tell a client is that their hard drive is toast and they lost all their data (because, of course, they didn’t have a backup).  In the past, I have been able to use some excellent software that allows me to recover […]

Finally! Windows Surface Pro!

by admin on Feb 11th in Hardware Recommendations

In my constant desire to have the newest and coolest gadgets, I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Microsoft’s Surface Pro.  Why not an iPad or a Tab or something else?  Well, to be honest, I’ve already bought one of nearly every mainstream tablet…and to be honest, they are all sitting on a pile […]

VCF (SNS) to CSV to VCF (non-SNS): My nightmare moving contacts from webOS to Android

by admin on Aug 19th in Palm Pre, Troubleshooting

With webOS on its way out, I got my daughter a new Samsung Epic 4G.  It arrived two days ago and it seemed like a gorgeous phone.  However, the question was asked how she could get her contacts from the Palm Pre to the new Samsung.  Good Question.  Online I found a secret code (dial ##66623# […]

R.I.P. webOS

by admin on Aug 19th in Hardware Recommendations, Palm Pre

It is truly a sad day.  HP has announced that it will discontinue the sale of webOS phones and tablets.  This is probably very frustrating to those who bought the new HP Tablet in the last couple of months…and they are still advertising them on TV!  As a long time Palm user, it is sad […]

Tablet Wars – The Battle Rages On (revised for Cam)

by admin on May 6th in Uncategorized

Ever since the iPad arrived on the scene, everyone felt they needed a tablet.  This amazed me, since Fujitsu has been selling tablets for over 15 years.  They just didn’t have the ‘cool’ factor that Apple adds to all their products.  Now that we are on the iPad2, other manufacturers are trying to get into […]

Tablet Wars – The Battle Rages On!

Ever since the iPad arrived on the scene, everyone felt they needed a tablet.  This amazed me, since Fujitsu has been selling tablets for over 15 years.  They just didn’t have the ‘cool’ factor that Apple adds to all their products (through the ingestion of Steve Job’s Kool-Aid by the unsuspecting).  Now that we are […]
