We moved the Opening Date to Aug 13th
Sometimes you have to delay. While we could open the shop bare bones with just enough to do the work we have decided that we do not want to kill ourselves in the process. So we changed the opening date to AUG 13th.
Yarrr! What does opening a phone and Mac repair shop have to do with pirates?
If you are thinking of piracy having to do with BitTorrent …. I’m not that guy. (I have Married a Copyright lawyer…besides, I like open source software ). But there is this quote from Steve Jobs that has always inspired me. “Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?” Steve Jobs I have […]
Still working on the new Mac and phone repair shop!
I think the hardest part of opening the Mac & Phone repair shop is finding the time to do so while staying open. Here I was thinking that I could work on the new shop in between repairs….. but with the other phone repair shops in town closing down I have been flooded with all […]
Future Proofing how my buiness uses our Macs
One of the interesting challenges that I face with opening up the shop is setting up all the computers and files for expansion. Because I have been working on my own for some time I have all my files the way I like them. Everything can be accessed with the various passwords that I use. […]
Apple & Google pay safer than credit cards in your wallet
I am not always one of those people who dive head first into new tech! No really! I was one of those people who said that Video cameras on smartphones were going to be a dud! (Yeah … maybe stock advice from me is not the best idea) Paying for things from your phone was […]

When we opened MacMason Repairs and Training it was right in the middle of COVID lockdowns. I had been laid off from my previous employer in Katoomba, and there is not any Mac shops in the area. Until my wife pointed out to me that there are no Mac Shops in the area! So we […]
The Joy in teaching
Teaching is one of those things that if there was a way to have all my bills paid and just a little left over for an occasional Mac upgrade I would teach for free. The joy in teaching. Unfortunately, I do need to run a business in order to keep the lights on and have […]
Coffee Shop and Coding in Bathrust
About once a week I go to the Bathurst Seymour Centre to teach computer literacy for Seniors. Honestly, it is one of my favourite classes to teach. As the students are always happy to see me. We often get sidetracked and talk about life, the universe and everything. And other times I help fix their […]
2013 Mac Pro Still kicks ass!
I love this Mac Pro. I wish this one belonged to me but it belongs to one of my clients. She brought it in for a tune-up and a few software issues. (My specialty is software issues). While I had it and she was away for two weeks I had a chance to play with […]
