Computer Geeks Rule!

There was a time when being called a geek was an insult. Suddenly it’s not such a bad thing. If you throw the word computer into the mix you’re no longer a geek, you’re a genius. As technology continues to move faster than most consumers can keep up, we all too often find ourselves stuck and in need of assistance.

So what do you do? Do you drop off your computer at the computer store only to see it in maybe a week or two? Do you call the experts that know their prices better than they know customer service? You can always call Microsoft or Hewlett Packard for phone support — it’ll only cost you about $35 or so.

Or, do you hope to one day find that geek who does on-site computer repairs, who’s in the know about networking, web design, hosting, and maybe even a geek who can help you with a custom PC and/or upgrades? I found one! By accident! This description is just what you’ll find with Adrian Santos at ComputerGeeksHawaii.com.

Computer Geeks Hawaii Internet Cafe

I was stoked! A place that’s close by, easily accessible, clean and inviting with its mini Internet cafe… a place for the computer nerd in all of us!   Sheesh!  You could take your computer in for a problem and then surf the Net while you wait.

Adrian shares this space with two other techie types. One is a cell phone business and the other works with the Clear Wire technology.

Clear Wire DisplayDid I mention training? Computer Geeks Hawaii (.com) does that too. I had my first lesson in Clear Wire. I have heard the phrase “Clear Wire” so many times but I just shrug it off as the latest thingamabob technology to hit the market. Until now. I made a similar comment to Adrian and I got the whole run down on what it’s all about. Sold! I think I need to re-open that laptop discussion with my husband.

Apparently they are familiar with and/or work with Pacific LightNet. Do I know them? Hawaii Online? I’ll say! Only for 12+ years. That’s another story for another time.

Anyway, Adrian had no problem educating me on Clear Wire and responding to all of my, “But how?” questions.

ComputerGeeksHawaii’s website says, “Home of the $60 flat-fee computer repair service.” I’m telling you, there’s gold on Fort Street! Just walk around the corner by Subway and head Ewa on Pauahi. You’ll run right into this little shop that says Gadget Guyz on the door.

Computer help is just a hop, skip and a jump away! Or a phone call.

77 South Pauahi Street

    Thanks, Adrian, for stopping by and leaving a comment! Hopefully we won’t be visiting you for computer problems. I have to admit that Clear Wire thing has got me thinking. 🙂

    don’t we all need one of those computer geeks from time to time? this computer stuff is just getting so specialized that it’s hard on the no-techie person to keep up.

    I know what you mean, Pua. People like Adrian provide us with a security blanket. I’ll fill you guys in when I get more intelligent about the Clear Wire thing! 🙂

    Specialized? Its hard for us to keep up, with all of the spyware, viruses, and new operating systems (Windows Vista, Mac OS X, and the various flavors of Linux) its enough to make a man cry!

    Clearwire is an internet service provider just like Hawaiian Telcom DSL and Oceanic’s Roadrunner, but instead of having a line into your home/business (either phone line or cable) clearwire’s modem is wireless – so you can take it anywhere there’s coverage.

    If you have any questions, please call us at 599-GEEK or stop by our shop.

    It does make ME cry! I’m trying to figure out which thing I want most… a new laptop or a new camera. I know! Money! Then I don’t have to choose! 🙂 The Clear Wire is stuck in my brain though… I need to talk to Pacific LightNet too. Any Clear Wire will come through your shop, Adrian. I promise!

    Look at it this way: you need a computer (laptop) to use the (digital) camera and you need a camera to use with your computer.

    The clearwire guy handles the 808 Netphone stuff (the pacific lightnet), so basically you can go out and use the internet anywhere you go (that is, if you like to carry all of that stuff) 😀
