In an early blog post http://www.homelandsecureit.com/blog/2010/03/when-you-need-computer-repair-do-you-search-online-or-use-a-phone-book/ I asked what you do when you need computer service or computer repair in Greenville and received a couple emails and a reply or two in person. Most people agreed with what I said and that is, in the event of needing service, they turn to Google or some other search engine.
An article posted a couple days after mine at this URL tends to agree http://www.inlander.com/spokane/article-14859-paper-cuts.html and talks of phone books being obsolete. Okay, I can buy that. But, what about the time you need your computer fixed and have no computer to look up a good computer repair shop with? It appears 411 service is free with many people’s cell phones. I checked my plan and it is not (Sprint / Nextel).
Nothing new here, just wanted to share someone else’s thoughts as well, mainly because they concur with my own.
