“In our family we have a total of 16 Apple devices (Macs/iPads/iPhones/Apple TV) & couldn’t imagine keeping them in proper working order without Sam’s help. Sam keeps my iPhone & computers in sync & running smoothly. He has saved me so many times & always makes sure we are safely backed up. He has taught me how to organize my email, photos & iTunes to the point where I really feel comfortable with the technology. He keeps us current with all the latest technology & gadgets. He keeps our wifi & Bluetooth working smoothly – in the car & house. He can connect to us remotely & fix things in minutes. He has helped us out of many binds & at times when I’m sure it hasn’t been convenient for him. Sam simply rocks in every way! You can trust him with anything & everything. He is so much more than your typical computer guy. I couldn’t recommend Sam more highly!”
