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.

Yeah, this is from Windows, but you get the idea...

Lately, many folks on the Internet have been speculating that Apple is heading toward a diskless world. With the recent release of the new Mac Mini (which lacks an optical drive) and the fact that OS X 10.7 is available ONLY on the Mac App Store, it is not hard to see why people are thinking this, and you can count me as one of those folks as well. But the real question is, “Is this a good thing”?

Mathcad 13 on Vista???

Mathcad 13 on Vista???

I will be honest, while we sold the student license version of Mathcad 13 at the TechHub, I really don’t think many of us…all right, more like any of us…really knew much about the product. We know it is used for mathematical analysis, but that is pretty much the extent of our knowledge. But one question kept popping up here that we figured we should probably look into because it was being asked a lot. “Will Mathcad 13 run on Vista?”

A lot has happened in the world of technology this week. Adobe announced their Creative Suite 5 on Monday. Apple announced their new MacBook Pro line on Tuesday. And in between it all, Apple revised their iPhone SDK (Software Development Kit) agreement, effectively killing what people have been clamoring for on their iPhone/iPod Touch. The agreement states the following:

The Holidays at the TechHub

The Holidays at the TechHub

Finals are over and the stress of school is gone for a few weeks. Now is the time to pack up and head home during this period to visit the family for the holidays. That’s when it hits you, “I never did any holiday shopping. What am I going to do?” And let’s face it, as a college student you probably don’t have much disposable income lying around to purchase these gifts with.

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…

Hey everyone, I would like to apologize for the lack up updates for the past month or so to our blog. Things have been really busy at the TechHub for the past couple of months. That is still no excuse, but hopefully I will be updating TechTalk on a more consistent basis. Perhaps switching to a weekly update schedule might be for the best…we shall see…
