Happy New Year!

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

I know it’s been awhile since our last post, but we were extremely busy with computer repair this year! So much so, that it’s been hard to find time to keep this blog updated with our latest virus removal, data recovery, and computer maintenance tips and tricks. I don’t see this changing anytime soon, and I want to say “Thank you” for it. That’s right. Because of you, we’ve been able to keep our little business growing slowly and steadily–and in the middle of a recession, too! I can’t thank our customers enough for making this possible, and we look forward to serving you all in 2011.

Speaking of 2011, we’ve got big plans coming up! Our service area has already been expanded to include areas around Lake Orion, Oxford and Clarkston, and we’ll be adding more friendly technicians soon to expand even further. This helps us keep our already low prices down to a minimum, as more technicians means less driving time for us and less money spent on gas. It also means that more and more people have access to affordable computer repair–a service that becomes increasingly necessary in our community everyday. We’re very happy to be providing it and can’t wait to meet our next set of happy customers!

We’re also in the process of finalizing a unique service plan which we’ll be offering to our residential customers soon. We’re really excited about it and can’t wait to make an official announcement, but I suppose I should leave it at that for right now. Be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed, facebook, or twitter to keep updated!

Thanks again for a great year, everyone. We hope you all had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve and have a great 2011. Happy new year!

Zoodles: A Free, Safe And Kid-Friendly Browser

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Much like the kid-friendly educational software of yesterday, free web browser Zoodles gives young kids an easy-to-use window into the Internet while keeping them (and your computer) safe. For ages 2-8, Zoodles attempts to always deliver safe, fun, and educational content through a dead-simple interface that can even get more complex as your child grows and learns.

Zoodles is available for Windows and Mac, and comes in either a free version or a $7.95/month premium version which gives parents extra functionality such as enhanced ad blocking, content filtering, and activity monitoring. A free trial of the premium membership is included with the download.

If your kids are older, you should definitely teach them how to use a computer properly without special software installed. However, kid-friendly browsers such as Zoodles are a great way to introduce younger children to the computer and provide them with a safe and enriching experience.

Net Neutrality Favored Nearly Unanimously

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

The FCC has given Internet users an open forum to express their views on proposed Net Neutrality policies. This is great, as it provides more transparency in the policy-making process and allows at least some form of discussion to take place between the FCC and the people it will be affecting.
