Computer Repair | Shorewood, Illinois

Computer repair in Shorewood, Illinois is not only an important service but is a necessary service for citizens of Shorewood. We decided to put our first location in Shorewood, Illinois because we believe in the magic of the town. Shorewood is a wonderful place to live and work with some of the best citizens in Illinois. The small town of Shorewood is growing fast and the economic environment of Shorewood is very vibrant. As more roofs go up, the need for reliable technology assistance is paramount for residents. Casanova Information Services not only provides great service, but also provides learning opportunities to the village. We host weekly workshops at our office to make learning about technology a top priority in the village.

Computer Repair in Plainfield Illinois

Computer repair in Plainfield, Illinois is a very much needed service. Currently there are no computer stores in Plainfield. There aren’t any stores that exclusively sell computer parts. Yet there is a huge need. Plainfield is a rapidly growing town with an above average household income. Plainfield is boarded on the North by the very successful City of Naperville. Naperville also has had a dearth of computer stores, although that has changed recently.

A look at the Village of Plainfield’s economic development site shows an above average spending inclination amongst the citizenry of Plainfield. This shows that there is a dire need amongst the residents in Plainfield for a computer store. Although the computer repair market isn’t as strong as it once was, computer repair is still a service that is in demand.

Casanova is the premier computer repair service provider in Plainfield, although Casanova’s Shorewood location is very accessible to Plainfield’s residents, this is not the best scenario for citizens. Casanova always look to serve the community as best it can and is now investigating the best location for a Plainfield proper, office.

We believe that an office location within the official boundaries of the village will provide citizens optimal access to computer repair services. Plainfield citizens are very educated and tech savvy and need a place to purchase memory, have their computers repaired, and have viruses removed.

Casanova is looking forward to making computer repair more accessible to Plainfield proper.

Women in Technology

Although there has been a recent trend in people choosing to go into tech-based careers, women seem to be largely missing from the field. As a woman, I wonder why more of us do not choose this industry. The opportunities are tremendous and are only growing.

According to a 2012 report by the National Science Foundation, women make up only 18% of engineering, 18% of computer science and 19% of physics majors at the college-level.

Surprisingly enough, the same study showed that STEM-based electives at the high-school level had roughly the equal amount of women and men enrolled. As a woman in the technology field, I saw some of those disturbing statistics first-hand.

In my very first college-level scripting course, I was the ONLY female in a class of roughly 25. Imagine being the only woman in a class of 18-25 year old men. Strange, awkward, socially-inept, mouth-breathing men.

Ladies, where are you? Careers in these fields can be extremely rewarding. Seeing the website you just developed show up in a Google search, selling thousands of copies of that app you worked tirelessly on, hearing that the database you created for that Fortune500 company is error-free… The rewards are gratifying.

Although recent numbers show the trend heading upwards in our favor, we need to do better! Help break that stigma of mothers in Silicon Valley (or Shorewood, IL, as it is in my case).

Age Old Virus Scam, Beware!

There have been many Internet users who have fallen victim to virus scams recently. The virus that is the most scary is the fishing virus, which takes control of your computer and holds it hostage. It then asks you if you would like remote IT support. The unsuspecting individual will then proceed to give their financial and network information to the scammers. The scammers purport to fix the issues on your computer. However, just like with most scams, the scammer continues to squeeze the victim for every penny. A few weeks, months, etc. down the line, and they will be back to ask for more money. The virus was never removed from your computer. It’s still there, ready to be used when the scammer wants more money. Beware! If you run into these issues, call a professional.

PC Gaming Now!!!

PC gaming had been around for a very long time. But for many it has been a niche. The console has dominated for decades as the platform for your average gamer. Price point is a huge inhibitor. To really get into PC gaming you need at least a GTX 960 which costs about $200 bucks. A nice set of headphones, a decent gaming keyboard and mouse, a decent monitor – here GamingBuff recommends Asus, Acer, AOC and BenQ, Windows license, XBox PC controller, and you’re at at least at $1000. However, while the barrier to entry is high, the rewards are even higher. Your experience will be more complete as you will have access to far more games than what the console provides. You also have a full blown computer at your disposal which can give you access to more content and more productivity than you’d get on the current generation of consoles. If considered were any better, they’d just be computers. The current consoles are locked down computers as they are.
