Geeks R Us

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek says: “A geek is a person who is fascinated, perhaps obsessively, by obscure or very specific areas of knowledge and imagination.” Geeks come in all forms, such as mathematics geeks, aviation geeks, computer geeks, science geeks, music geeks, movie and film geeks, history geeks, Star Wars geeks, Star Trek geeks, and of course my favorite type of geek, “The Boulder City Geek”.


www.thinkgeek.com is a web site that has all kinds of new and different products, from a Laser Virtual Keyboard, to a Faucet Light that makes your water look blue. It’s like a toy store for big kids. Here is an item you can’t do without: A TV-B-Gone Key Chain. You press the button and all the TVs in a 20 to 50 foot area will turn off.

www.geeksquad.com is a 24-hour computer support team. The cost for diagnostics runs about $159, and online support starts at $99. Remember, it’s always best to use local Boulder City computer support. It will save you some time and money.

www.download.com is a site where you can download a lot of free programs. Many of them are free to try before you buy. There is also news, reviews, price comparisons and how-to’s.

www.howstuffworks.com is a great site that will help you learn about almost everything, including auto, science, health, entertainment, computer, electronics, home, people and money.

We are all Geeks in one way or another. I am proud to be called a Geek. When I hear that word I think, “Now there is a person with passion about what they do.”

Remember: The best backup plan is to back up your files now. Stop what you are doing and save your e-mail addresses, your e-mails and all your photos and files. Think how you will feel if you lose everything on your computer tonight!
