We all need computer support sometime or other. So who's the best at providing computer support? Do you rely on online computer support, or the computer support department at the major store where you purchased your computer, or do you use the local computer store in your area?
When your computer stops working... who are you gonna call on for computer support?
A buddy of mine recently upgraded his old P3 running Windows ME to Windows 2000. Murphy's Law applied and the upgrade didn't go smoothly as planned. He called me up and asked for help, and I must have talked with him for an hour, late at night. Trying to offer computer support over the phone sure takes patience, especially when the other person isn't very tech minded.
I finally suggested that he take his computer to a local shop in my area that offers great computer support. I figured that this was the wisest option, instead of us wasting anymore time, and me talking in circles with him over the phone.
So when it comes to computer support, who do you call? My friends and neighbors always seem to call me. DOH!
