04/06/2017 | Filed under: Thoughts on IT| Permalink

Recently I had to sign up for yet another account online, something most of us do dozens of times a year. I was shown the below animation as I chose my password and thought the feedback was excellent from a user standpoint. You want your password to be good, because you want to be happy!

So how do you make &ldquo...

If you talk to our staff for any length of time, I think you’ll find that most of them have at least two obsessions in common, an obsession with good business practices and an obsession with gadgets of all kinds. The more I thought about it, the more I thought that the same kind of thinking that goes into good gadget selection can also apply to business.

Here are two of my (and my wife’s) favorite gadgets.

04/04/2016 | Filed under: Thoughts on IT| Permalink

We all have friends as tech geeks, those people who talk to us in syllables and consonants and expect us to be as smart as us when it comes to understanding our computers and tablets. Well I am one and as a parent of a three year old, I often spend time wondering how to raise my daughter so that she’s positioned for a bright, happy and financially stable future. I thought back on how I was raised and what my mother did right to get me where I am today. I wondered what events made the biggest...

Just replace the modem they said… (Computer Horror Stories: Part 4)

One of our clients had a problem with a leading network supplier. When they notified the vendor that they had a problem they were told that a modem needed replacement. They were paying for 26mbps speed but the modem issue had reduced that to 1 mbps. As you can imagine everything was grinding to a halt!

So the vendor came out to replace the modem and apparently everything according to them was working fine. BUT guess what? Now their internet didn’t work at...

For some reason he couldn’t get it to work so he called his technical guy who immediately appeared (great customer support) and plugged it in! That was a skit. This really happened.

How many times have people called customer support to...
