Episode 65: Steve Pollack, Computer Xpress

November 30th, 2014

Who hasn't said at one point or another:  "I hate my computer!"  The fact is that technology changes so quickly it's hard to get a handle on things. And at other times computers just break down and chew up all our data or locks our system or refuses to cooperate.  So where do you go for help?  You may have an IT department, or a contract service provider for that.  But if you're a small business and you've relied on a "techie" type employee, or your kids, or YouTube videos or a big box outfit then you are spinning a roulette wheel with your business' data.  We are all dependent on computers to run our businesses yet we don't have great, tested and reliable ways to protect that.  So, enough proselytizing, just sit up and pay attention, better yet, take notes.  And here's what you write down:  Call Steve Pollack at Computer Xpress.  This is the guy who is your IT department whether you're a small business or a individual with computer pain.  He'll take the frustration out and help you love your computer again.
