Getting the Most Out of Your Technology

In a short TED talk that shares 10 timesaving technology tips, David Pogue hints at two basic points: 1) people want their technology to be intuitive and 2) people don't want to spend time reading manuals. Pogue is the personal technology columnist for the New York Times and a tech correspondent for CBS news. He wants to help others free up sacred time by better understanding their personal technology.

Most people only know a percentage of what their smartphones are capable of. Unfortunately, most people can't hire David Pogue to walk them through the magical world of tech tips and help them get more out of technology.

Technology needs are different in the business world, but people's inability to master business-related technology stems from the same roots: the desire for intuition and the desire to save time. Like iPhone users, most CEOs know only a portion of the functionality of their company's hardware and software. They can hire their own David Pogue, however, in the form of an IT department. An internal or outsourced IT department will save the company time and make technology more intuitive and manageable for the entire organization. An IT department frees up the company's time by keeping old technology up to date, learning new technology, and ensuring that all technology is used to its fullest potential.

In an op-ed piece responding to Pogue's TED talk, the writer claims, "The most amazing technological advances for everyday life would never see the light of day if the interface needed instructions." CEOs, managers, and employees don't have time to read manuals front to back. People need to be able to pick up a new piece of technology and walk themselves through the process of learning it. And when they are unable to do that, they need to be able to trust someone else to teach them efficiently. That's where we come in. As your IT support, we'll be the ones to read the instruction manuals and then translate them to you in a language you understand. We'll be your David Pogue.

Choosing an IT company should be just as easy as figuring out how to use a new phone, but oftentimes isn't. We want to make things simpler for you.
