I am in the process of starting Daphnon IT Asset Disposition Services.
We handle the digital muck and junk consumers and businesses are stockpiling in their closets, attics and store rooms. We not only safely dispose of electronic devices we provide data security, asset trail creation and regulatory compliance. Our business is based on data wiping and reselling as much equipment as possible. The really cool part is we share with our clients the revenue from what is resold.
Hello allergylady,I echo the statements by iouone2.My wife has owned Mac since the first iMacs came out and hvae had two iBooks. They just ran with very little need to tinker with them. Also zero virus and spyware issues.Each time the Macs were more money on the front end but were rock solid and performed great through out there use. Each new purchase was due to new models that were available with all the old ones still working fine.I personally use several non-Apple laptops and desktop models that I have rescued from the trash and run Linux as my primary OS so I don`t spend much on my technology but do run older systems.As for my business start up we are going with one iMac and one PowerBook to start with. We made this decision based on our experience with the quality of Apple products, OS stability and availability of software titles.
I am with you. Been catching up on posts due to some busy days at work.My personal opinion about renewable sources of energy involves using as many sources as possible to maximize output. Wind of course is a part of the formula for success.I envision a decentralized energy infrastructure in our future. Currently we have huge electrical generation plants distributing power over long distances. What I see is reversal over time where I put solar collectors on my roof and maybe a small wind turbine in my back yard. My household will use the power that is collected and generated and any excess would go back into the power grid. Over time many more folks are doing the same thing and more power is being put into the grid from decentralized mini power plants i.e. homes, businesses. Maybe local governments could subsidize the initial cost to outfit a roof with solar collectors or wind turbines. Or a business start up would make it affordable to equip homes with alternative power sources and organize the customers into a huge collection of mini power plants. Of course this is all very high level and all my opinion.
