Why MacBook Pros and milk don’t mix!

Keep AppleCare on your older devices as it is now renewable

Here, I am talking about why AppleCare+ is such a good investment! This is the SECOND time this customer has had a liquid spill incident, and this time, it was a full glass of milk! Also, I talk about why it’s so important to have a backup of your data on newer Macs, as the […]

I am a happy forever MacMedics customer!

MacMedics Environmental Sustainability Statement

I am an “Apple person.” We have a MacBook Air, an iPhone X, and a new iPad Air. Last week, my old iPad was definitely having battery problems, and I’d been having issues with the other two devices as well. I did what most people do in that case – made an appointment and visited […]

There have been some mentions of this warning found in the iPhone user manual. It’s good advice! Also mentioned: Beware of non-Apple charge cables and power adapters. “Don’t sleep on a device, power adapter, or wireless charger, or place them under a blanket, pillow, or your body, when it’s connected to a power source. Keep […]

My own mother lost access to her Facebook account(s) because she had never set up Two Factor Authentication. And yes, I checked!

An iPad Pro 11-Inch that was run over by a car!

Thanks for saving my laptop! MacMedics is the BEST!

“I was unfamiliar with MacMedics until today, and I cannot possibly articulate how happy I am with my experience! I was greeted with a smile and an eagerness to help me the minute I walked in the door. I admit I was reluctant to make the appointment since I always go to the Apple Store […]

Our customer was using this MacBook Air in 2009 when the car he was riding in was in an accident, and the airbag deployed and crushed it into his chest, bending the lid like a taco.

As reported by www.cultofmac.com from 7/14/2009 The MacBook Air is a thin, sexy machine, but you wouldn’t want one smashed into your chest during a car accident. That’s what happened to this MacBook Air above. It was sitting in a man’s lap when the airbag went off and crushed it into his chest, bending the […]

Zip Disk from 1998 with no Zip Drive? No Problem MacMedics has you covered!

Zip Disk from 1998 with no Zip Drive? No Problem MacMedics has you covered! This was a fun little data recovery project! I helped a long-time MacMedics client (an architect from Baltimore) rescue the data from a 1998 Zip Disk. It was simple, but delivering this crucial data to my customer at a very low […]

Let’s talk about two-factor authentication.

Let’s talk about two-factor authentication. I’ve posted about this before, but my own mother, who put eleven years of hard work into her Facebook page to support the books she has authored, and her business Facebook page got hacked a few days ago. She did not have two-factor authentication turned on. The sad thing here […]
