I have needed Pete's expertise on many occasions. I have a desktop computer, laptop and iPhone - he knows them all. He worlds by phone, email or in person. He has been helpful on issues with iPhoto, email, mobileme/icloud, double passwords, and a host of other things. If he doesn't have an immediate answer he has the resource. He has recovered photos from the sd card on my camera (after I deleted them from my computer) and downloaded hundreds of videos that seemed locked in my video recorder. He is constantly teaching me ways to upgrade my devices, apps I should get and software that would be helpful given my idiosyncrasies. He has come to my house the same day or the next day when it was urgent. I work from home and don't have office support. For me, not having to go to the apple store with my big desk top is worth his hourly rate.

Pete was knowledgeable, serious and trustworthy, and really dug in on setting up my Apple network in a seamless and secure way - in a challenging wireless network topography. I'll bring him in again for more work on my computer.

Pete is the best. I would gladly recommend him to anyone for Mac and computer technical support. He is punctual and professional - always quick to follow up. What more can I say?

I immediately like Ari when I met him. I had a list of computer skills I wanted to learn and we ran through the checklist within an hour and I also learned additional information that would make my computer use a little bit more advanced e than before the lessons. I would highly recommend using him as a computer instructor. He has a lot of patience and is not condescending

Ari is fabulous ! His teaching style is calm and patient, much needed for a novice like myself. I will continue to use Ari's service in the future to further my computer skills and learn new ways to be more organized and proficient with my business as an artist.

He fixed my computer's boot problems and identified that my system drive had died, installed a new one for no extra fee and pushed the cost to me. Done in a day, very professional, thoughtful, complete work.

David literally came to my rescue. I had just had a "no-show" followed by 7 unresolved calls with the Geek Squad. Stay away from them. They have NO idea what they are doing, or who is doing what! I needed data transferred from an older "dying" computer to a new one. There were a lot of upgrade needs and password confusions- all on my part. He was patient, knowledgeable, thorough and took care of every situation. I feel so very lucky to have encountered him. He stayed well beyond the agreed upon appointment to make sure that I was up and running. And his price was very reasonable. I have 5 Apple devices and often need support. I will only call him from now on and have recommended him to 2 other people already.

David called almost immediately, we connected and he was able to identify and repair the problems with my computer that same evening using TeamViewer. David also noticed and fixed my wife's computer (which was networked to mine). That was a real bonus. I highly recommend Gurunerds!

Ben was so very helpful. Patient in listening to my concerns but lightening fast/super smart in working with my computer and resolving the problem. He calls himself a "Computer Coach" which is much different and better than "Computer Repair"...because often it is not the case that the computer is malfunctioning...it is that someone (like me) may not know how to navigate the issues. He provided some good follow up to make sure that everything was working well for me. If you happen to book an appointment at his place, don't be put off by the shabby exterior of the house... and of course, he also will make an appointment to come see you at your home or place of business. I highly recommend Sustainable Computing.

I needed RAM installed on my Mac mini. Ben did this as well as troubleshooting for some minor problems I was having. He also explained some "whys" and "wherefores" regarding some quirks I was having with my machine. It was a very positive experience. He is a trustworthy and skilled person whom I would call upon again to work on my computer.

I know Ben because he has been providing computer tech support, and we've talked about his work on sustainability. I find him to be thoughtful and imaginative. He's also smart, entertaining, and fun to work with. I think he'd be an asset to any project or institution.

Sean fixed my mother's computer. She had clicked on something she shouldn't have and had a really bad virus infiltrate her computer. He also removed some additional malware. Sean was also kind enough to install a virus protection program to her computer as well. He was very patient and kind throughout the entire process. I really appreciated his professionalism.

I was having a big problem could not even logged into my computer and worst of all did not have a recent backup so i was really nervous and worried because its my work computer and depend on all my files to make my living , spoke to several people on the phone and it only got me even more worried because people were telling i needed to re-load windows which meant i would loose all my data but, then i spoke with Sam and felt more comfortable ,he came to my office not only was he able to get all my data back but, he was able to get me up and running in no time he went beyond saving my life he also offered knowledgeable suggestions and expertise to avoid future problems he is very professional,reasonable and, really knows what he is doing.

I talked to 3 pros and they ranged in price $35-50-70/hr. One wanted me to pay for travel. Another was going to send a sub-contractor. Sam was willing to tailor a tutoring session to help my 12 year old son with an html homework assignment. He started from scratch and taught him a lot of the foundational pieces he hadn't learned before. And, he provided a basic overview of how to work with a PC - from antivirus needs to asset management. I sat in on this since I'm a "MAC" user and I wanted to be able to help my kid with basic upkeep. Sam is clearly very experienced. He's a patient teacher (good with kids). I will probably hire him for help with excel, powerpoint, and other business & school applications. He was also on time and professional. I'd definitely recommend him to Thumbtack users.

This was our first appointment. Darrell called the night before to confirm the appointment and was on time the next day. He gave my husband and I ideas about how to increase our internet speed, etc. He taught me how to customize my homepage. The bulk of the time was helping me improve my skills with Aperture. The latter will be ongoing for a while. The first appointment was 2 hours. Darrell was excellent. He was clear with his explanations and very patient. I am looking forward to continuing appointments.

I have been delighted with Chris Rubin’s services and highly recommend working with him. I work extensively on a computer and run a fast paced company with demanding clients. I found myself crippled by the sheer volume of incoming emails and projects. Despite my best efforts to organize and keep up, I was at critical mass. The time I was wasting searching for files, correspondence, and items to follow up became more than a nuisance, it was actually costing me time and money. Realizing I was in a hole, I searched for classes at local colleges and tech companies where I could learn the latest techniques, but found there were none that fit my needs or schedule. I have worked with Chris once a week for the past 5 weeks, and have seen huge improvements in my efficiency, above and beyond my expectations. Chris listens, defines the problem and quickly gets to the root. He has the experience and knowledge to suggest everything from simple tips and tools I immediately applied, to different software options which perfectly fit my needs and were often free. It’s clear his expertise allows him to work with everything from the simplest of issues, to highly complex tasks, and his patience is never ending, which has been very helpful. After working with Chris, my approach to email has completely shifted and I no longer feel overwhelmed. My productivity is increasing and I am in control again. My ability to find specific data and my overall search time has been greatly reduced, and as I implement new strategies Chris has taught me, this will improve even more. I highly recommend his services. Best regards, Francesca Kuglen HairZing Francesca.kuglen@hairzing.com

We knew our project would be one that required imagination, knowledge, creativity, talent and a collaborative spirit. That's a lot to ask for, but we were fortunate enough to come across all of that in Chris Rubin. Now, our web page displays 5 volumes of epic poetry that can be read just like a book... the reader turns the pages to the sound of the paper in movement... Chris' work is truly a work of art and we could not be happier.

Chris set-up my printer to my new mac computer. He downloaded all the proper software and showed me how to scan& email documents. When I bought the printer I did not know I had to pay for a landline to get the wifi fax to work. Chris showed me a software company that I can pay a smaller fee and send faxes from home :) He was very friendly and got the job done. I highly recommend his service!

When I had a virus on my computer, he explained to me multiple ways that viruses can get onto a computer and how to prevent that from happening. He got rid of the virus I had and installed different anti-virus programs that would protect my computer in the future. All in all I had a very good experience working with him and my computer is still protected!
