New PC options with CET…

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Tired of Dell, HP, Toshiba, etc? Tired of being treated like an idiot when you call customer service? CET will be offering Certera desktops and Jetta laptops on the web. These are “Made-in-America” systems and use higher quality parts than the “big, low-cost players”. As we get the details sorted out, expect more information will be forth coming!

Windows XP and Windows 7

Friday, July 29th, 2011

If you haven’t noticed, I am still a fan of Windows XP but Windows 7 has really grown on me. The networking interfaces are much easier to use and I found that the operating system is much more stable than “V” on computers with lower-end resources. I have clients who still find XP to their taste but I do recommend Windows 7. And by next August, we’ll be getting a taste of Windows 8 – I’m looking forward to that too.

Summer Heat & Your Laptop

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

laptopLeaving your laptop in your car in the summer heat can not be beneficial. My friend asked me last week if the heat in his car would damage his laptop? I was not comfortable telling him it would, but was not sure it wouldn’t either.

My thoughts are that as hot as it can get in a parked automobile, it is not good for anything! If you must leave your laptop in your car during the summer heat, lock it in the trunk.
