Mac-Sys Ltd was started 3 years ago (this week) by yours truly and is currently the only Apple Authorised Service Provider in Northern Ireland. The team there are some of the best guys I’ve ever worked with. You can’t buy enthusiasm like that.
Their blog will cover tips and tricks, how to deal with a dropped iPod or Powerbook, what to do if your Mac is crashing continuously and other useful tidbits. It’ll hopefully usher in a few more business blogs too as there are several PC companies who use Mac-Sys for Mac servicing (put it like this – any company in NI that says they can fix Macs or iPods? They bring them up to Mallusk to see Mac-Sys!)
Mac-Sys also had a preview of SyncBridge yesterday and they were really pleased with it. “Really really nice” was one of the comments made. As they’re a beta site, it’s nice to hear that kind of feedback. Mac-Sys is a heavy user of iCal for group scheduling via WebDAV and they know how primitive a solution that is so SyncBridge has been something they’ve been waiting for.
While we’re talking about anniversaries, this summer will be the 8th birthday of NiMUG, the Northern Ireland Mac User Group.
