In Lawrence, we don’t have an Apple store to do iPhone repairs. Apple is giving us some new options.

Phones are Highly Personal

Published on May 27, 2018 By dgreenbaum

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 […]

Your iPhone Can Block Spam Text Messages

Published on February 25, 2018 By dgreenbaum

The only thing more annoying than junk phone calls is junk texts.  I don’t know why, but they seem like the biggest violation to me. Fortunately, Apple heard our cries and introduced the ability to block spam messages on your phone.  The tricky part is you need to download a program to help you do […]

How to Block Scammers and Telemarketers on Your iPhone

Published on October 1, 2017 By dgreenbaum

Since Apple introduced iOS 10, they’ve included a way to identify and block annoying calls.  They haven’t advertised this feature well and that’s a shame. If you’re using a newer AT&T iPhone, I recommend their Call Protect app. It blocks calls from even ringing your phone.  I’m using it on my iPhone SE and love […]

Should You Install Windows 10? No!

Published on June 12, 2016 By dgreenbaum

When Windows 10 came out, we advised clients to wait on the upgrade. The product was new and Windows 10 had lots of glitches. Microsoft fixed a bunch of these problems and Windows 10 is now reliable.

Published on March 3, 2013 By dgreenbaum

Infographics are always fun as they easily tell a statistical story visually and these two infographics from iPhone repair company Squaretrade say quite a bit. The key points of the study are that the most dangerous place to use an iPhone is in the kitchen. Ouch. And if you’ve left your phone on the top […]

Remember the “fantasy” commercials for 1993-1994 called “You Will” by AT&T Here are the videos all at once on YouTube Most of the technology “dreamed” about in the video is so commonplace that at first glance you might skip over it. Things such as long distance learning with voice and video, tele-medicine, GPS and paying […]

Published on December 18, 2010 By dgreenbaum

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 […]
