AT&T Turns on LTE service in Denver

By | November 8th, 2012|Categories: Featured, Tech Talk|0 Comments

We've heard whispers of AT&T bringing LTE service to Denver by the year's end, but we were beginning to get skeptical.  The rumor weeds started growing again this past week -- some people saying that it would happen as early as this weekend.  It happened even sooner than that! If you have an iPhone 5 or an LTE-enabled iPad, turn off your Wi-Fi for a second and look at your connection.  For the first time in Denver, it should say LTE.  One of our technicians sent me the picture attached to th [...]

The MacBook Pro (Retina) is and will always be expensive

By | July 3rd, 2012|Categories: Tech Talk|Tags: , , , |2 Comments

We've read many differing opinions about the Retina MacBook Pro that Apple introduced recently.  Most people say it's totally worth it, other repair companies say that it's a huge step backwards.  We have to chime in because we think that everyone is missing the point. John Gruber (an Apple enthusiast) says that only third party repair companies are being vocal because they’ll lose business -- we think it's reaches further than that.  Anyone who knows anything about the cost of fixing a computer [...]

Last week, the last of the IPv4 addresses were given out to the companies who actually purchase them -- Comcast, IBM, etc.  This may not mean much to you right now but that's actually a big deal in the world of the internet.  Let's step back and take a look at why IP addresses are important. An IP address is crucial to your ability to communicate online.  You would never be able to use Google unless your home or business IP address was able to communicate with Google's IP address.  An IP address [...]

It's the Friday night before your term paper is due and you're planning to do nothing but edit all weekend.  You say goodbye to your friends, hunker down with a warm cup of coffee and press the power button on your Mac.  To your dismay, the computer does nothing but sit at the Apple logo with the gear spinning.  You've tried rebooting, resetting the PRAM, holding the shift key to get into safe mode... but nothing works.  You call up your friend who's pretty handy with a Mac and even he/she canno [...]

Before playing with the new iPhone, we were unsure about it's purchasability at this point: there were rumors of screen defects and reception issues. Well, we're writing this post from the Cherry Creek Apple Store sitting right next to the iPhones... and we can't replicate the reception issues. Most of the information that you'll find online says that it doesn't happen with every phone. We're wondering if it has something to do with the way your body is grounded?

By | June 23rd, 2010|Categories: Apple News, Tech Talk|Tags: |0 Comments

If you've been paying any attention to the iPhone 4 news as of late, you'd know that a lot of people ended up getting their iPhone a wee bit early. Obviously, some of the bigger reviewers like Walt Mossberg, Joshua Topolsky and more have been putting it through the paces. They like them a lot. The problem comes with the iPhones that were delivered prematurely today by the delivery companies: they aren't doing that well. Screen issues, reception issues, and scratches -- oh, my! In all seriousness [...]
