Twelfth Day of Christmas: DoctorDave™ Gift Certificate

December 24, 2010

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house… not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse! The web was searched with thought and care, but not a company could get gifts there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while panic and mayhem danced in your head. But DoctorDave ™ [...]

Eleventh Day of Christmas: Online Backup Service

December 23, 2010

Nothing says I love you like “I don’t want you to lose your stuff.” More than one client says to me “My computer is my life.” or “I can’t live without it”. Yet they don’t actually protect it against loss. Like losing weight or quitting smoking, I hear clients always say “I should be backing [...]

December 22, 2010

We are almost to the final hour here and relying on shipping is probably too risky  It’s time to go virtual for the last minute gifts.  Fortunately Apple knows this and has an easy way to buy gift certificates.  They can be emailed, but they can also be attractively printed on your home computer for [...]

Ninth Day of Christmas: Computer Training

December 21, 2010

Whether it’s a Mac or PC, Android or iPhone, technology can sometimes be difficult to figure out. Computer training is one of those things that people are afraid to ask for but always need.  Although I think myself pretty smart with technology, I always enjoy reading a good tech book to find out something I [...]

Eighth Day of Christmas: Otterbox Case

December 20, 2010

My love for everything Otterbox is well known by my clients. I first started using an Otterbox case after I dropped my iPhone in a bowl of soup. I was showing a client some pictures off my iPhone and the phone slipped out of my hand and ended up in her soup. Although I try [...]

Seventh Day of Christmas: Pogo Stylus

December 19, 2010

Back to more practical gifts and a repeat from years past is a Pogo stylus.  The latest touchscreen devices are great:  unless your fingers are covered.  Cold Kansas winters make dialing your phone in the bitter cold a major problem since you generally can’t use touchscreens while wearing gloves.  I keep a Pogo Stylus in [...]

December 18, 2010

Neat receipts, are, well Neat! You may have seen these in the back of magazines, on TV or even at a kiosk at the airport. The crazy thing is they work, and work well. While we aren’t quite paperless with this, the neat receipt scanner is about the closest thing you can get. Many people [...]

Fifth Day of Christmas: Car Mount for your gadgets

December 18, 2010

This device isn’t as cool, but it’s really practical. Anyone who uses their phone in the car a lot needs a safe and easy way to access it. While many newer cars have bluetooth capabilities, they don’t have a really good place to keep your phone. Even if you don’t have to hold the phone [...]

Fourth Day of Christmas: Slingbox

December 17, 2010

A slingbox is just so amazingly cool. While devices like DVRs and TiVos allow you to record something and watch it later, you generally have to be home to watch it. When a major sporting event is on, you have to wait until you get home to watch it. What if you could watch it [...]

Third day of Christmas: Yurbuds

December 16, 2010

Let’s face it, those little earbuds that come with MP3 players are kinda lousy. They fall out of your ear and you always lose the little foam earpiece thingees. Arrrgh. I have the solution I’ve been using for years and in a small part, it helped me loose my 50+ pounds because it made working [...]
