Get Your Computer Fixed. Lose an Election Your computer stops working. All your remote working has taken its toll on a personal laptop you never indented to use this extensively. You panic because you can’t go into the office, and there’s nothing your remotely-working IT person can do when your machine can’t turn on. What to do? Ship it back to the manufacturer? It could take weeks. Call the Geek Squad or your local tech repair shop? This may be the least bad op [...]

Would Yoda Have Clicked on This Email?
