Welcome to our September Newsletter
We still have a few weeks before you will feel fall in the air, but we are getting there. At least we are getting past the oppressive heat that comes every July and August.
NEWS FROM THE SHOP
BACKUPS: Do you make copies of your pictures and other important files that are stored on your computer? If not, you need to give it some thought. If you are diligent about it, backing up your pictures and other stuff to CDs or DVDs works great. The key is that you have to remember to do it. For those of us who sometimes forget, it is better to pay for an online backup service that automatically saves all of your important stuff to the cloud. Our favorite is Carbonite. It is only $59.95 a year for a single home computer and it works quietly in the background. They have other plans as well for people with more complicated needs. We are a Carbonite dealer and we will be happy to help you protect your memories.
MICROSOFT SUPPORT CALLS: PLEASE don’t get scammed. Microsoft won’t call you. Related and just as nasty are “drive by” popups that will attempt to panic you into calling someone who will be happy to fix your computer while charging you hundreds of dollars for the call.
We offer our “Safe Computing Plans” for people who would like somebody they can trust. We can set things up so all you have to do is give us a call and we can pop onto your computer with our remote support system to look at anything that doesn’t look right. Likewise, if you have our Safe Computing protection, you can tell the “Microsoft” callers that you already have tech support and then you can hang up on them.
Please stay safe this coming weekend. If you have any questions on how to take care of your computer during a storm, give us a call at 727-847-2424 or drop us an email.
We hope you found this newsletter to be informative. It’s our way of keeping you posted on the happenings at our shop.
Thanks for your business!
