Digital Home Media Systems

the PS3 - just one type of media "receiver"

It’s here now and it is such a convenient, and easy to use system – every house hold should have it – it’s digital home media.

From one single computer in your house you can record your favorite TV shows, save your DVD and Blue-Ray movies digitally and then “serve” them to any TV in your house for watching by anyone, any time.

Imagine, your entire movie collection and any TV shows you record – available to any of your TV’s any time you want.  Heck, you can even configure a server to send media (photos, music, movies) to your smartphone or laptop when away from your home network!

 

Contact us to learn more, or to schedule a no obligation quote for your home media needs – from a media server setup, right through to media receiver systems at each of your televisions.

Linux Systems

we love Ubuntu!

So what is all this about “Linux” and “Ubuntu“?  Why should you use Ubuntu Linux?

Well, you can breathe life into an older computer, or just make a newer computer “that much better”.  You’ll get that “mac-like” system people love (no viruses!) without spending the big bucks for the “mac-name”.

Ubuntu is easy to use, and it comes with thousands of free applications. Ubuntu does everything you need it to. It’ll work with your existing PC files, printers, cameras and MP3 players.

You don’t have to be an expert. Ubuntu’s quick and easy to get started.

Free apps, safe and fast web browsing, a dedicated music store and much more. Ubuntu brings the very best technologies straight to your desktop.

OpenOffice is Microsoft Office compatible!

Included is OpenOffice.org – it is fully compatible with Microsoft Office and has everything you need to create professional documents, spreadsheets and presentations. OpenOffice.org is easy to use, packed with the features you need and completely free.

 

You can stop making excuses, and stop wasting money on trying to update older machines to run newer versions of Microsoft Windows.

Ubuntu Linux.  We can install it, and get you started using it.  But really, it is so easy and friendly to use, we’ll bet you won’t need the support!  Click here to jump to the Ubuntu Linux web site, download and install!  Or contact us for more information on making the switch.

At TCM we’re also here to help you get the most out of your hard earned dollar, or company budget.

Our flat rate purchasing consultations will ensure that sales staff at “big box” retail stores aren’t just selling you what they make the most commission on or using the “SWAT” principle on you (Sell What’s Available Today).

We will sit down with you, evaluate your computer needs and your budget to find a solution best suited for you.    We can then shop “with you” at the store or give you specifics on what to buy when you do go to the store.

I see it all the time — sales reps pushy to maximize their own commissions,  but fail to really stop and listen to what the customer is asking them for.  You may not be techno-literate, but you still know what your budget is and probably have an idea of what you’d like to see yourself with.

We’ll help you make an informed and educated decision, without the pushy pressure of a commission based sales representative.

 

Bulk Data Backup

backup solutions

If an online backup solution via “DropBox” isn’t the ideal solution for your home or business, we do offer alternative services where we can provide a hardware based method of file storage complete with the software, installation and configuration of it all.  From simple USB backup drives to NAS and NAS RAID sytems, we have experience in it all.

Low, low rates and a friendly member of our staff will visit you at home or business to get you started.
