Have a Landline; You’re in the Minority!

Posted by on September 30, 2018 at 8:37 pm

Back in 2016, we crossed a major threshold in technology.  A majority of US Households use mobile phones and don’t have landlines. It makes sense as mobile phones become a necessity.  Why use a phone that ties you to one location? If you still have a landline, there’s probably a few reasons.  First, you might be […]

We can put the best antivirus on your computer (Malwarebytes), but ultimately they’re ineffective you work around them. It’s not just phishing attempts.

Computer Protection Plans Aren’t What They Seem

Posted by on August 26, 2018 at 8:06 pm

Generally, we’re not big fans of extended warranties.  Computers depreciate too quickly to make it worthwhile. The exception being AppleCare.  Apple repairs are not only expensive, but Apple products retain their value longer. The other thing we’ve found is that companies exclude all sorts of stuff from these warranties.  It’s so bad that BestBuy is […]

Be Careful Who Repairs your Phone!

Posted by on August 19, 2018 at 8:59 pm

Our primary focus is computer repair in Lawrence, KS.  We don’t do mobile phones at all.  We do get calls, daily, about mobile repair. Too often the caller wants to know the lowest price.  That’s a bad strategy.  The cheap often comes out expensive as my Mom used to say.  A lousy repair isn’t just […]

New Internet Options From Verizon

Posted by on June 17, 2018 at 8:01 pm

With pretty much duopoly of Internet Service Providers in Lawrence, any change is welcome!  If you live in rural areas, you’re options are even more limited.  Verizon could change that according to this announcement. Clients sometimes use their wireless phone service to provide internet.  The problem is those services are slow and expensive compared to […]

Most People Aren’t Recycling E-Waste

Posted by on June 3, 2018 at 8:16 pm

When you get a new computer or smartphone, what do you do with the old one?  According to a recent report, only 20 % of people in the US are recycling it. Those old devices could just be sitting in a closet or basement. Sadly, many people just throw them out with the trash.  Not […]

Phones are Highly Personal

Posted by on May 27, 2018 at 8:12 pm

This statement may seem obvious, but still need to be proven by science. I don’t know about you (well, actually I do according to this study), but when I’m without my phone I panic.  Where is it?  I’d be much more upset about misplacing my phone than my wallet.  That dreaded 1% battery sign means […]

Rural Douglas County Needs This for Internet Service!

Posted by on March 18, 2018 at 8:27 pm

Even as we push for better broadband in the city of Lawrence, our community is bigger than that.  People in rural areas have a tough time.  They’re stuck using mobile hotspots that have severe data limits or expensive satellite connections. These don’t always work, especially if you live on a large property. Microsoft is coming […]

Some ISPs Give you Mandatory Ads

Posted by on March 4, 2018 at 8:55 pm

When you go to some websites, you expect ads.  That’s what pays for the site.  Just like commercials on TV.  Some Internet Service Providers add their own ads to your browsing experience. Comcast was caught doing this last year.  They were adding information to web pages you visited encouraging you to upgrade your cable modem. […]
