My Story

Our job, as software and hardware professionals, is to help you:

  • Make sound and informed decisions about Software, Hardware and OS purchases.
  • Alert you to problems that exist or are on the horizon in the current PC platforms.
  • Help you get the most out of your Microsoft system, regardless of the version.
  • To let you know about programs, apps, utilities and services as they become available, and help you determine which ones are right for how you use your PC. 

The ‘Personal’ part of PC:

When the PC was first introduced, it represented the first time that a regular person could get his or her hands on computing power that rivaled the that of a medium to large company. It was not unusual for a corporate PC user to have more memory on his or her desktop than the company mainframe had.

Now, with multiple platforms, competing operating systems and thousands of 3rd party software and hardware options to choose from, your PC can be truly personalized, potentially making your computer a one of a kind computing powerhouse custom fitted for your needs and wants.

The down side of choice:

With great choices comes great confusion, and for many people, it is simpler to go with a plain vanilla rig just like everyone else has than to sort through the OS, Platform and Software choices that are out there.

That’s where we can help. With our advice sections and reviews, we will give you a better idea of what your PC can really do, allowing you to develop a personal vision for what your Personal Computer should look like. We will also make it easier to decide if an application or hardware option will help you realize your vision, within your budget and without buyer’s remorse.

We will also help you get the most out of each purchase with tips and advice on how to access (or suppress) features and options. Our in-house software and hardware experts will help interpret the manuals and help pages in language and terms that you can more easily relate to.

The Next Big Thing:

There is always a next big thing. Whether it’s a new Windows release, a fresh virus threat, or a new technology that promises to ‘revolutionize’ the industry, we will report on these upcoming events as credible information becomes available. With your help, you will be equipped to determine if change is best, or standing pat will serve you better. Our expertise and insider knowledge can work to your advantage when it comes to making computer choices.

Keeping track of the computer industry is no simple task. Thousands of companies are constantly making improvements to hardware and software, and by the time your PC got to the place you bought it from, it was already obsolete. Even if you are a home brew guru and make your own rigs, keeping up with the latest advances is still an unbearable challenge.

We will keep you advised regarding changes to the industry, help you decide which ‘New Thing’ is right for you and, most importantly, let you know when they are ready for human consumption. Just because it’s on the market does not mean it’s ready for prime time.

Whether you are a basic PC user, a hard core gamer, or a bleeding edge developer, you need reliable sources of information in order to make good calls on what you buy, what you use, and how you use it. It’s our job to keep you up to date on what is what in the world of PCs.

We will help you keep the Personal in Personal Computing.
