Recently I was visiting a client site and needed an Ethernet cable in a hurry. So I rushed out to the nearest big box electronics store to get one. Did they have what I needed?
Absolutely. BUT: the price was shocking. For a standard 15 foot patch cable, they charged $30. For comparison purposes, we charge less than $4 for the same thing!
It’s the same thing with printer toner or ink.
Just when you think the whole virus / trojan / malware “thing” can’t get any worse, it does.
Recently one of our clients discovered that his critical database files were unreadable, so he called us. It didn’t take us very long to discover that his computer had been infected with a new form of Malware called Ransomware.
So you’re going away on that vacation that you’ve always dreamed about. Wonderful. Lucky you!
One thing that’s really important for you is taking your mobile phone along. After all, you need to stay in touch with the office, or the kids, or all your friends on Facebook.
That question is all-too-common these days. That shiny, brand-spanking-new computer seemed to fly when you first got it. Now, six months later, it’s maddeningly slow, and everything seems to take forever.
What changed? Why does this happen? And why does it happen to every computer you own?
Unfortunately there isn’t a single, simple answer.
