Tech Support?

Time to exit, stage left…

I have had an incredible time writing these blogs over the last couple of years. While I have never actually managed to get a good schedule down for writing them on a consistent basis, I always enjoyed getting some time set aside to do so. So it is with a heavy heart that I inform the regular readers of the TechTalk blog that as of now, there will be no longer be any updates to it for the foreseeable future. We will leave the page up though, for anyone who still has lingering questions about any of the “How-To” articles we have written, or just want to watch one of our videos again. So thank you all very much for just reading my (and my colleagues’) articles, it has been a pleasure.

These photos were then voted on by fans of the TechHub Facebook page, which will then be voted on in person by those who visit the TechHub during Picnic Day (4/16/2011).

On October 15th, the TechHub held the SkullCandy “Headphones For Your Dead-Phones” event at the shop. To participate, you had to bring in a pair of your old broken down headphones and trade up to a pair of SkullCandy Icon headphones. The event started at 11AM on the dot, but we had people showing up to wait well before that time. Once the event kicked off, we wound up trading all of the headphones we had in about 20 minutes. Below, you will find pictures of the event and filmed coverage of the event will be posted in the next webisode of TechTalk. Now, on to the pictures…

So, it is April 3, 2009. That means, sadly, the “I Spotted Jimmie Johnson” contest has come to a close. And so, on April 1, we drew a name from our hopper to win the MobileEdge Edge Messenger bag. (And by hopper, I mean my lunch pail…all very scientific. What can I say, I am on a budget and it was the only container I had on me.) So without further ado…congratulations Sylvia Wright!
