Today’s small-business lesson: First pay the CRA… Home and small-business tech consulting company owner Lucas Roberts offered 80 free, personal, half-hour consultations just before Christmas. “I’ll pop in for 30 minutes (daytime, evening, or weekend) to check your Mac health and backup,” his email offer read. “No charge and no strings attached.” He promised the visit would “make you smile and will free up an hour of your time every week. If I’m wrong, you get a pumpkin spice latte.” He must have been slightly mad.
Have you thought any of these things in the last year? “My photos are all over the place! This is chaos.” or “Argh my f#*$ing iPhone is full again!” or “What can I delete to take this picture?!”
Free 30-min visits with Lucas available daytime, evening, or weekend. RSVP before Friday 5pm to book your visit before December 21st.

I hate getting reminded about updates when I don’t want them. I will update when I damn well please!!! LATER.
Many updates even download behind the scenes and use up precious storage space on your iPhone. If you keep deleting photos and movies on your iPhone and you still have no space that might be why…
If you’re a Mac owner and you live in the Vancouver area, take note. I’ve been using Macinhome as my tech consultants for years now – the best part is they make house calls! Whenever I’ve had something go wrong with my Mac that I can’t fix, I give them a call. It used to be such a drag hauling my desktop to the shop on transit. And I would have to leave it there. Now it’s a quick diagnosis, and usually a quick fix.
