News From The Computer Guy

Well, this summer is going right along, hope everyone's had their fill of sweetcorn and heat! The Iowa State Fair also starts this week, so we know summer vacation is just about wrapped up.

The newest social media tool on the scene is Google+. Many people think it will be the new Facebook, others think it will turn Twitter into a MySpace sort of thing. Anyway, I've hopped on the bandwagon and invite others to also. It's kind of an "invitation only" thing, so if you DO want an invite, please hit REPLY to this email and I will get you an invite so you can see what all the hub-bub is about and you can add me to your "circles."

In September, I'm speaking at The Upper Midwest Social Media Conference to be held in Mason City at the Clarion in. Admission is $50 for the day. My topic is "Social Media For Business." I'll cover social media, location based networking, and local searchabilty. Sure, I'll throw in a few jokes, some details and some practical examples. I'll also try to answer as many questions as I can in the 45 - 60 minutes that are slated for me. There will be about 8 speakers for the day, so it will be information packed.

Hope to see you there! Have a fantastic week!

We've mentioned it before, but thought it would be worth saying again, we do offer a remote "clean up" service that is done in the off-hours so that it does not interrupt your busy day.

Whether you need this monthly or yearly, we do offer packages based on your needs. Just give us a call at the shop and we can set you up. Prices start as low as $16.59 per month.

Also, it seems as though Yahoo Mail has been hit again with some hacking activity. If you get an email back and someone complains of the content, usually sexual in nature, change your password AND secret question. This should take care of it.

As a reminder, we are open 10 - 6 Monday - Friday and 10-2 on Saturday. You can also just give us a call - 641-456-1936.
