It takes a special person indeed to put up with chasing me around the city to pick up my laptop. They delivered it back to me in Cherrybrook at the end of the day, all fixed! Thank you so much boys.

This computer repairs blog is about remote work. Something that in this day and age has become a familiar theme.  The tag ‘remote’ that is used by employers around the world is no longer a novelty, however, it does still cause distrust and many questions. The doubts of potential employees can basically be brought down to ‘And what’s the catch?’ question because, remote work can be so advantageous for both parties.

Hello everyone and welcome to computer repairs Wednesday! Wow have things changed in the past few months in Mobile Geeks’ and the technical world.

While we have kept our one off call out home and residential support, we have also added annual maintenance service for businesses and non-for profits and set up a new Google Apps and Microsoft 365 technical support service. So our computer repairs skills are their in a variety of ways :)

Chrome!

Virus removals are now a whole new game for us. Firstly, the game players have changed and as I said before about Chrome…good browser. However,  it is now also  the #1 browser and that means it is under attack. In our virus removal checklist, browser extensions and add-ons are the very first thing computer repairs geeks check to find out what they are dealing with. Chrome, in my opinion, has the most bugs and junk when we remote in and check clients’ browsers. Continue reading “Computer repairs blog Chrome add-ons and plug-ins allow spyware” »

Computer repairs geeks are facing another Monday. And although it is gloomy and threatening of really bad weather, there is no reason why it cannot be a fantastic Monday. And all those Monday haters among you will just have to cope with my Pollyanna attitude today.

Geeks have been installing countless cloud computing systems as of late. Everyone, it seem, is seeing the benefits of cloud. Rather than installing costly software on your computer it is now the preferred option for may to just run applications in the cloud.

Today is a gloomy and rainy day but, I am quite happy with life as I plan my decidedly non computer repairs related day. I am off to have my half way ultrasound, you see why I am so excited now. Another important but less weighty reason is my new fashionable umbrella. There is not much a pregnant lady can indulge in the country where maternity clothing is represented by K-Mart selection of potato sacks…. Anyway, with no computer repairs on the horizon and a splendidly glamorous umbrella in hand I thought of all of those social media friends of mine that rock fashion blogging. So, this one is for you beautiful girls (and boys). Continue reading “Computer repairs blog Best gadgets for your glamazon fashion blog” »

I thought I would devote this computer repairs blog to giving you a bit of an update on Instagram, seeing how much I love that app. (Find me under ‘mobilegeekette’). Anyway, Instagram  has had a tough past few days with the whole Twitter drama, however, they are trying  to remain on top and are not doing too bad of a job thanks to a new update for its iOS app. This update comes with a revised camera interface,  a brand-new filter that you can tinker with. It also has Foursquare integration for those that love to check-in to places. We used to do that at Mobile Geeks computer repairs but, seeing that we are always travelling around Sydney and rarely go to the same place enough times to win anything, we had to stop that :(

The world of computer repairs is full of quirks. Here is one for your Thursday. A Japanese refrigerator manufacturer is on a mission to make us happy about about our appliances. They have developed a smile-activated refrigerator – reall dream of some Denver fridge repair man. The fridge will not open unless you show its your pearly whites. The new system  is called the “The Happiness Counter,” encourages smiling in our every day lives. The contraption works  with built-in Sony CyberShot digital camera that has smile-recognition technology and a light sensor, it can detect when a smile has been flashed and unlocks the door. Although you would be forgiven to think that this would cure your late night feeling depressed kind of eating habits, it is still possible to open the refrigerator even if you do not smile — you just have to pull on that door a lot harder. And Nigella Lawson will not have anything to worry about as that woman seems to have a perpetual grin when food is about. (Yes, I have been watching a few of Nigella videos lately) “We feel that the happiness counter will naturally encourage the act of smiling in the multitude of daily frustrations, thus enhancing a positive mood and the communication of people,” a spokesperson for the company said in a promotional video. How commendable! I hope you enjoyed this update on the weird a geeky in computer repairs world.

Google glasses

April 4th, 2012

Google has released its designs for “augmented reality glasses”. The glasses layer emails, video chat, Google searches and GPS directions over the wearer’s eyes. (I am thinking…’Here come more car accidents…’)

The glasses are voice-controlled and were developed in the famous  Google X blue-sky ideas lab.

The glasses do not cover the whole eye and the wearer has to look up to engage with the display.

Ever been called and “Internet Addict”? The label is placed on nearly everyone under the age of 70 too easily.
