Still no word from Microsoft as to when it will re-issue Windows 10 October Update and it’s hurting the entire PC industry.

My Bad….I Should Have Warned You!

Recent Microsoft and Apple Updates – Causing Stress And Confusion I’ve had a rash of calls from people complaining that Windows Update is tying up their computers for hours and hours, or that their iPads or iPhones are suddenly looking and acting very differently. Don’t feel bad, I’ve had the same issues! I knew changes were…

​Do You Use Skype or Face Time?

Wait Until The Bugs Are Out!

With new technology, it’s best to wait until the bugs have been worked out…to wait until the “early adopters” have found the major problems and the company has had a chance to fix them. We’ve seen this recently with the release of the iPhone 6 and the Apple watch.

Are you wondering if you should upgrade your OS?

There are major changes happening with computer and mobile gadget operating systems and it’s my mission to make it easy for you to keep up and enjoy the many benefits.

My New Computer

My old computer was running out of memory and my web browser was crashing.  I needed “bigger, faster, stronger” badly.  After much research on line and some field trips to Best Buy, I ordered a Dell Inspiron 15″ 7000 Series that was similar to my very, very old Inspiron 1500e.  It was a lot of…

Windows 8

One of my clients needs a new computer and wanted to know if she should wait for Windows 8, so I did a little research and found a good article from Computerworld: Computerworld – Microsoft will charge users who buy a new Windows 7 PC $14.99 for an upgrade to Windows 8, according to a report.…
