Inevitably the items that we buy will eventually break. With the way things are designed these days, the attitude is frequently that it is easier to just get rid of the item and replace it with a new one than spend the money for repairs. This is understandable as often times the costs for repairs can end up being more expensive than buying a completely new item. For very small items like cell phones and tablets, they may also be made such that they are sealed such that repairs are not possible.
The problem is that there are many cases where the item in question can be repaired for less than it costs to get something new or it is more affordable to do it on your own then pay a professional. Over the past six months, I have had three cases of things breaking on me that I was able to repair to hack them back into working condition. Find out what they were and what resources I was able to use to get up and running.
Being in the tech industry since the early days of the web, I’ve noticed that there are a large number of websites out there that cater to techies, nerds, geeks, etc. Some of these are great sources of information for those that like the finer details of processor design, software coding and just about every minutia on technology out there. But what about those that just want to know smaller things like how to choose a computer, whether a smartphone camera is all you need or if it is even worth getting the latest and greatest tech gadget on the market?
That is the exact reason that I’m setting up Tech For Anyone. The idea actually began with an ebook that I’m working on to help people new to technology to build their own desktop computer. This is a perfect example of something that is much easier to do than people imagine and is beneficial compared to buying one at a store.From this, I decided to build this site to go well beyond just computers and touch on any piece of technology out there that might interest me and help to demystify it for those that don’t know the various buzz words.
I’ve written specifically about desktops, laptops and tablets for since 2002. Before that I worked at one of the earliest Internet service providers and as a support engineer for a network monitoring company. Outside of my professional experience, I was an early adopter of digital camera and have been into PC gaming since my high school years.
Hopefully my years of experience in the technology field will help make this site great and help who choose to read it.
