Sunday, June 16, 2013 repair without going anywhere

Do you hate the Geek Squad? Possibly from their outrageous prices, or the fact you have to haul your broken electronic all the way to your nearest Best Buy (or have some stranger come in your home). I have found a great alternative: how about a tech support where a trustworthy tech rep will remote control your computer and have it fixed in no time. No need to stand in a line or monitor a stranger in your house. And if you don't like the idea of someone controlling your computer, there is a mechanism in the software you can use to stop the remote control session at any time. If they can't fix it (not very likely), you don't have to pay anything. One awesome service that they offer is assistance backing up your computer. I RARELY see that service from a computer repair company. Another neat thing is that they don't make you sign up for anything before you talk to a rep. Now you don't have to be bothered with those sketchy emails that "magically" appear in your inbox after you register. And to top it all off, you can pay for their service with any credit/debit card and PayPal. Besides Home Depot, I have never seen a professional buisness accept PayPal before. In case you haven't used PayPal before, when you check out instead of having to enter a million numbers you enter your email address associated with your Paypal account. Easy, isn't it? So do yourself a favor and write down or 855.BOX.HELP on a post-it note and stick it to your monitor. You should at least write down the phone number, because how are you going to visit their website when your Internet is down? And if you are the "Tech Superman" in your neighborhood and you are getting annoyed when literally everyone is asking you for help, save yourself a headache down the road and leave on the clients computer. Have Fun!
