Windows 7 End of Support

Windows 7 is coming to an end on January 14, 2020

What does that mean for you?

If you are running a PC with Windows 7, Microsoft will no longer provide:

  • Technical support for any issue
  • Software updates
  • Security updates or fixes

Although your PC will continue to function, without continued software and security updates it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware.

If you would like to learn more about an upgrade to Windows 10, please fill out the form below and we will follow up with a free consultation.

Smart Home Security and Automation

Provide your family with peace of mind with a Smart Home Security and Automation System. You can remotely control the system from your smartphone or tablet. This technology can alert a home owner to intruders, monitor smoke alarms, see who rang the doorbell, and most importantly, keep your family safe.

Smart Home Automation packages as low as $59.99/Month. Items you can monitor include doors, locks, garage door opener, and your thermostat. You can also monitor your door bell, water sensors, cameras, lights, motion, glass and shock sensors.

Upgrade Your Website

The World Wide Web has been around for nearly 30 years, and in those 30 years a lot has changed. Techniques used to build websites have been evolving, and they will continue to evolve. This is especially true since the smartphone revolution more than 10 years ago. Today, more website traffic comes from mobile devices than ever before.

If you had a website built for your business more than 5 years ago, chances are your website is not mobile responsive (mobile friendly). Mobile responsive means your website adapts to the size of the screen it’s being viewed on. If a website isn’t mobile responsive, search engines will not give it a high search presence.

Another important factor for a website in 2019 is making sure it is protected with a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate. SSL certificates encrypt the data between the end user and the server. This means that any information exchanged between the user and the server remains private and unreadable by any third party. Lack of an SSL certificate will also hurt any positive search rankings.

Digital Guru is aware of the standards for website design and development in 2019, and will continue to be in the future. If you had a website built in the last 5-10 years, and you think it may need an upgrade, give us a call at 701-642-8083 or send us a message.

Upgrade to a Solid State Drive

Computers need a place to store and retrieve permanent data, and most computers use a hard drive. In a traditional hard disk drive (HDD), a mechanical arm is used with a read/write head to move around and read data. In a Solid State Drive (SSD) there are no moving parts as data is read from microchips. This means faster computing speed and better overall performance for your computer.

Here is a short video that shows an example of how much faster a Solid State Drive is compared to a Hard Disk Drive. The computer used in the video is a 2011 model. You can expect faster boot times in a more modern computer. Click here if the video does not load.

Easily upgrade your computer's speed and performance by upgrading to a solid state drive. Upgrade today for as low as $80! Stop by the store or give us a call at 701-642-8083.
