Greg Stapells Spend a little more on a printer, save a fortune on ink! http://signa.com http://signa.com Thu, 11 Dec 2014 19:0:0 GMT Holy snowstorms, can you believe all that* It's funny... we get the same thing every year, but it's always such a shock the first time - you'd think we'd never seen snow before! Kidding aside, I hope you got through it okay. So back to my subject, why would I actively try and decrease our InkJet sales* Well, three reasons: - Buying ink cartridges each month is expensive and a little annoying - We don't really like inkjet-based printers and don't use them ourselves - The business is appreciated, but the eco waste is a bigger problem Back in 1989, I disliked inkjet-based printers so much I had an $1800 laser printer in my apartment. People thought I was crazy spending that kind of money on a printer, but it served me well, getting over 10 years use from that trusty old HP Laserjet IIP. I bought a $50 black toner (dry ink) every two years and never looked back. I've bought lasers for work and home ever since, and have been extremely happy with their low-cost consumables and next to zero maintenance costs. So if you're like me and are tired of the high cost of replacement ink, please contact us. We'll recommend a nice, affordable laser printer for your application, that'll be cheap to run, providing consistent quality all the way. Thanks, Greg Stapells Drinks, Treats, Live Jazz!

Yet Another Mac Attack... http://www.signa.com/Signa-Computer-Systems-repairs-and-services-Apple-Mac-Lenovo-Acer-HP-Dell-and-more-in-store_on-site_in-home-north-york-toronto-canada.html http://www.signa.com/Signa-Computer-Systems-repairs-and-services-Apple-Mac-Lenovo-Acer-HP-Dell-and-more-in-store_on-site_in-home-north-york-toronto-canada.html Tue, 4 Nov 2014 19:0:0 GMT It's another sign of Apple's success and growing marketshare: over the past few days we've been seeing another rash of malware targeting iOS. As Apple grows in popularity and consumers jump on-board the platform, unfortunately cyber-criminals looking to exploit those consumers do too. This most recent attack slithers onto systems, interferes with network access, inserts unwanted ads into normally ad-free pages, and is generally a pain (see actual screencaps from an infected machine to the right.) If your Mac has been acting strangely or having intermittent issues lately, it might be worthwhile checking for unwelcome guests inside. Cybercriminals aren't just out to interfere with the use of your computer - they're usually after your personal information (like account logins and passwords, credit card information, etc.) It pays to be proactive, or if you're already infected, at least rapidly reactive. Signa offers a full range of services for your Apple products - sales, service, repairs, upgrades and also malware removal. We're happy to examine any machine that may be misbehaving, and we'll get it fixed up for you and back to full health in very short order. Best Regards, Greg Stapells
