We do a lot of Mac Mini hard drive and RAM upgrades here at MyService.

From time to time we’ll get one in who has lost audio or wireless after a customer attempted DIY upgrade. We’re seeing this happen more and more with the latest revs of Minis.

The cables and wireless connectors are much more delicate in the latter models so extra care should be given when working on these Minis.

A good rule of thumb is to not disconnect a cable if you don’t have to.

If you damage a cable or connector when attempting a DIY upgrade, we can help.

Our Mac Mini page lists the different hard drive upgrade services we offer as well as the free diagnostic option if your Mini has been damaged.

Zillow iPhone App

July 29th, 2009 No comments

Zillow iPhoneIf you’ve looked at real estate in the last couple of years, chances are you’ve used (or heard of) Zillow.

Zillow is a website that lists home’s currently for sale, shows past purchase prices, and estimates home prices. Using a map overlay, Zillow makes finding homes in the area you’re looking for easy.

The Zillow iPhone app is a very useful tool and pretty faithful translation of the tools available on their website. Using the iPhone’s location, the app can bring up homes in the area you’re currently in which is great while driving in a neighboorhood you’re interested in.

Zillow’s estimate feature is where most people have an issue. The estimate is usually more than the house is worth to the buyer and less than the house is worth to the seller. While the Zillow estimate may not be accurate, it is useful for comparing different homes in the neighborhood and fun to see what Zillow thinks your neighbor’s house is worth.

The free Zillow app is a must have for those brave (smart?) souls in the market for a new house.
