I’ve been a reader for over seven years now (started when I was shopping for my PB 1400) and you guys have always had the best insight on portable technologies, so here’s my question: I was reading about the new iPod’s “store text notes” feature and saw on the site where Apple mentioned “Now you can have the information you need – from restaurant reviews to concert guides to news articles – right at your fingertips.” It wasn’t until I read the “news articles” one that I started to wonder, would it be possible to have an Avant Go-type service for the iPod?
Yesterday, I gave my first Keynote presentation, and I have to say that it was a great success. I used my old PowerBook G3/400/512 along with the Clicker software, my
Sony Ericsson T68i mobile phone and a Keynote preso loaded with photos and video.
Everyone has lost a hard drive at one point in their life and there is nothing worse than losing data. Being a level one certified technician for an Apple Authorized Service Provider in a previous life, people have always approached me with the age old question “can you recover my hard drive?” Having had great luck with data recovery techniques in the past I would take on such jobs as favors for friends and family.
With years of PowerBook experience and a good recovery track record under my belt I am investigating starting a specialized PowerBook hard drive recovery service that is fast and economical.
The service is simple, cost-effective and goes something like this: simply send your 2.5-inch hard drive and a bench fee (about US$75 in the continental U.S.) to us with your contact information. Within three business days of receipt of your drive, we will diagnose it and email you a report of what data, if any, we found on the drive. At this point you can either a) elect to have your data recovered to CD-ROM for a fee, or b) have your drive returned to you at our expense.
If you have had the misfortune of losing a PowerBook hard drive and are interested in this type of HD recovery service drop me a line. Please include the manufacturer and size of your hard drive and any information about what happened and the symptoms it is exhibiting.
