Today’s Geek Squeaks – September 11, 2013

September 11, 2013

A summary of Today’s Geek Squeaks:

Squeak #1: Uninstalling security software should be straightforward, but it is not. Norton products are no exception. If you have a Norton product on your PC and you desire to uninstall it, make sure you download the Norton Removal Tool (see below);

Squeak #2: I came across some very good tips on what to look for when hiring a computer tech (see below);

Squeak #3: I have to let you know about this if you are an iPhone owner. Apple is releasing the NEW Apple iPhone 5S and 5C.  Difference between the two is that one built better and more expensive than the other. I found where the cheap one is still pretty expensive if you buy it unlocked (see below); AND,

Squeak #4: Nexus 4 is Google’s flagship smartphone. If you own one of these, I strongly suggest you protect your investment with one of these cases (see below);


Plan on seeing  a lot more of Geek Squeaks’, featuring a round-up of tech products, news, software, apps, wallpapers, articles, you name it;  from my favorite tech web sites… I just plain love tech!
