The Nexus 7 - or another reason I love to bash Apple products.

I fucked up this Nexus 7 that I just bought. Dropped it into a sink full of water. No more power button. πŸ™ I was dreading opening this. I don't have a Hakko at home, any prytools.. but wait. This ISN'T some overpriced, nonsensically put together Apple piece of crap! There may be ANOTHER WAY. […]

Our Yelp feedback hasn't been bought & paid for.

One aspect of our business that I take some pride in is the lack of paid reviews. From start to finish, we've never paid for a review. Whatever you read about us online, good, bad, or very bad - it's all unbiased from people we've REALLY helped [ or really pissed off πŸ™‚ ] It […]

Why technicians lie - some insight into why we bullshit you(and why you might deserve it).

  Oftentimes technicians do lie to customers. In part 1 of this important series, we explore a great reason technicians lie.

The definition of a no-fix.

If a technician wants me to walk them through their job, they'd better be an employee or a paying customer.

Stop suing review sites and work on your business.

It's obvious for anyone who follows my posts that I am not a fan of Yelp! "elite" culture. I don't subscribe to the idea of armchair connoisseurs who self-appoint themselves to the position of judge, jury, & executioner of local businesses. At the same time, my heart pumps piss for crybabies who blame online reviews […]
