On today's show, Mish and Jaison discuss how to protect your new computer or device. You can listen to Mish and Jaison every Friday at 9:30am on WATA 1450AM or 96.5FM.
Unfortunately, getting a new computer, whether it's a desktop, laptop, convertible, 2-in-1 or even a tablet, you would think they are ready to go right out of the box. That is not the case. Even a Mac needs to be “configured” for optimal use and performance. Many computers (especially Windows computers) come with trial versions of programs, including anti-virus. Most of these programs are useless, they’re either games, adware (programs that monitor where and what you do on the internet) and even the anti-virus program is usually a cheap one. Geeks at Work / Computer Tamers has a solution to this, called Signature Care. Purchasing Signature Care from us with a new out of the box computer or even refurbished one, guarantees you will be satisfied with your new purchase. It also will extend the life of your new computer or tablet. Signature Care includes removal of the bloatware on the computer, we install one of the top anti-virus security programs currently out on the market, we will transfer all your data and programs from the old computer to the new one. When completed, one of our techs will sit down with you and review everything, including general maintenance tips. Just like your automobile, a computer needs regular maintenance to keep it running in tip-top shape and to extend its life.
Even before purchasing a computer, we will help you make the right decision. We’ll guide you around the pitfalls normally associated with purchasing a new piece of technology. Tech companies are notorious for cutting corners to get you that lowest price (unfortunately, us consumers are mistakenly trained to believe that the cheapest is usually the best when it’s really the complete opposite). We’ll explain what to watch out for. For example, the speed of the hard drive affects the overall performance of the computer more than you realize.
