If you have a smartphone and take a lot of pictures this advice is for you.
Most people have an overwhelming amount of pictures and videos on their phones. All this adds up over the years and can be a daunting task.
If you spend just 5 minutes a day deleting junk pictures/videos on your phone it will help tremendously. Just 5 minutes a day can make a huge difference.
As always, make sure you have a backup before deleting things, either backed up to your computer or an offsite backup (cloud).
We would be glad to help if you need it.
With all the issues of cell phone security and not knowing whats what. Who is really slurping up my info among many other questions?
There is only ONE company that is trying to make a cell phone 100% in the USA. Not just assembled in the US.
You have probably never heard of the company, Purism, but they have been around for a while. Mostly selling Linux based laptops.
The Librem 5 USA is one interesting phone to look out for. Still not released yet but getting closer and closer to peoples hands.
The price is very steep BUT your not paying other countries to put this together at slave wages and peace of mind security wise make this one heckuva investment.
I have a feeling if this takes off they will become cheaper in time.
One to keep an eye on for sure.
Are you overwhelmed by all the email you have collected throughout the years?
You are not alone. Many people have this issue and its with both personal and work accounts.
The amount of emails collected through the years can be staggering. A dauntless task that you think can never in a million years be tamed.
If you spend just 5 Minutes per day going through old emails, archiving them, creating subfolders, or just deleting junk in your inbox will make a ginormous difference!
Start with the bottom of your inbox if possible.
If you use an email program like Thunderbird or Outlook it will make the task even easier to do.
After a month you will have whittled down those emails to a manageable level. And all that just spending a measly 5 minutes a day with it!
As always if unsure of anything we will be happy to guide you through this.
For the month of July our recommended program of the month is Palemoon!
Tired of using the standard Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox?
Tired of those programs taking your info at random and sending them home for them to do who knows what with it?
Take a spin on a new browser! Palemoon is a web browser based off of the Mozilla Firefox program.
Fast, sleek, and trimmed down from the normal Firefox web browser this is a great one to try out!
None of the Firefox "phone home" services which means it isn't randomly taking your info back to them.
Many different themes and add-ons to try out for it also.
It is available for both Windows and Linux. Hopefully a Mac version soon.
Try it out and see how you like it!
As always, if you would like help installing this give us a call or email us. We will be glad to help you out!
In celebration of our country'swe will be closed from Friday July 3rd to Sunday July 5th and will re-open Monday July 6th.
Have a fun and relaxing weekend!

With all the shipping and manufacturing problems due to Covid-19 there has been a big increase in prices of computer parts.
Getting those parts in is another story altogether as many places are out of stock and can take weeks to get them back in.
So don't be surprised with all the price increases and delays. Just about the whole electronics market is suffering.
