I hope you all have had a great Christmas and all the best for 2020!

We officially start back on the 6th of January, but there are techs available for any emergencies in the meantime.

This month we have articles (see below) on how to clean up your computer for the new year, how to select a printer for buisiness use, protecting yourself from the latest scams and how tradies can leverage technology for their benefit.

With the warm weather we have been having, your computers may be overheating and need an internal cleanout - contact us for details.

Remember that Windows 7 is end of life on the 14/1/20. See our website here for more details on what this entails and if you need to upgrade your computers please let us know ASAP!

Stay cool and catch you all next month.

Safer Internet Day

We’ve started the countdown to Safer Internet Day!

On Tuesday 11 February 2020, DP Computing is pleased to be supporting the work of Australia’s eSafety Commissioner by spreading online safety messages and promoting the positive use of digital technology.

Safer Internet Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the role we can all play in creating a better and safer internet for our community.

Celebrated in over 150 countries, the Safer Internet Day theme is: ‘Together for a better internet’. We are encouraging all Australians to start the chat to help improve online safety within their communities, and make every day a Safer Internet Day.

This year we are supporting Safer Internet Day by helping promote safe online usage on our social media chanels and newsletter via the hashtags #SID2020 #SIDesafety and we encourage you to join in!

Help spread the word and raise awareness. The first step to a better internet is to talk about the potential risks and ways to avoid them. You can host a Safer Internet Day activity or simply start a conversation in your community about coming ‘together for a better internet’.
