Introduction: After 18 years working with people and their technologies, I understand how you use the technology and have come to depend on it. You now have someone that you can depend on to provide you with advice, assistance, support, maintenance, protection and repairs. I love technology in general, not just computers. I'm like an ER doctor when it comes to technologies. I've worked with all sorts of technologies from computers to servers, network designs to solutions architecture. I love working with people to help them get the most from their technologies while protecting their equipment and personal data.

I was quite impressed with Gizmo Wexler who has 18 years of serious duty managing networks and knows his stuff. Besides being knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, he was especially patient. The problem was that the iPhone/iTunes sync used to download photos from the phone but stopped. The remote link didn't work but once he had me download Java the remote link worked, apparently the Java was out-of-date. Before the Java download, he made certain that I "unchecked" the boxes which would overwrite the terrible "Ask" toolbar and browser in my system. Upon completion of the download, we began. He quickly diagnosed the issue. However, the Windows instructions were vague about what photos from where were going to be deleted so he backed up the existing photos "just in case" and that took a bit of time. Again, I appreciated his caution. He also showed me how to workaround by directly downloading the photos via Windows Live Media Viewer rather than relying on the iTunes/Windows sync to do it. Gizmo went above and beyond, his charge was most reasonable, and I will use him again if needed. I recommend his work. You will be pleased.
