Over time, your Mac accumulates lots of junk.

This cleanup removes that junk, including: iPhoto cache files, files from old application installations, unused language packs, outdated iTunes, iPhone or iPad backups, and much more.

I will perform a full privacy cleanup that erases your digital footprint by clearing your browsing history, cookies,  download history, saved passwords, and auto-fill history.

Maintenance scripts will be run to check for system for errors. If found, I will repair them to improve your system’s read/write performance and keep your Mac healthy.

I check the system temperature, the health of your hard drive, and the battery life so I can let you know if there are any physical problems with your Mac.

 

 

 

 

 

 

thingCHARGER

Let’s face it, all of us are using more and more technology on a daily basis. And I’m a sucker for really useful gadgets. So any new gadget that makes using all that technology easier is right up my alley.

Think about all the chargers you have for your mobile devices. My wife and I each have a smartphone – I have a Galaxy S4 from Samsung and she has an iPhone 5, so we can’t share a charger. Our iPad uses the older iPhone 4 charger so we have a few of those around. And we kept our old smartphones and use them off the data plan for the kids to play educational games on. That’s even more chargers. We keep multiple chargers in various places around the house so we don’t have to keep unplugging them and moving them.

This gadget makes all of that clutter and all those chargers go away. thingCharger is a simple enough concept. It plugs in to any existing outlet,  and adds a charging port on the top of the outlet. In the back of the thingCharger are tips for the common mobile device types (Apple Lightning tips for the i{hone 5 are $9 extra).

This let’s you mount your phone or tablet ontop of the outlet without any adapter or cable. It adds 2 USB ports on the bottom and you can still access the 2 power outlets. As if that wasn’t enough, they are stackable! You can plug several in ontop of one another and have multiple devices charging from one outlet.
