The Mac Spinning Wheel of Death?

The rainbow-colored circle is a painful sight to see for Mac users. If you’re lucky it disappears in a few seconds, but more often it remains for minutes, leaving you helplessly locked out of the app or your whole Mac. 

Fortunately our solutions below let you reclaim your Mac.

Performance Upgrades for Older Macbooks

Sorting out the Photo & Video Mess

These days households have multiple Apple devices such as iMacs, Macbooks, iPads, and iPhones, as well as Windows based devices. All these devices usually have photos & videos stored on them in Photo Apps and also folders. To add to the confusion photos & videos can also be stored in iCloud and or DropBox. This results in photos & videos all over the place, duplication, and confusion. 

What we do is copy all of the photos & videos from these different sources to one device or external drive. We then remove all the duplicates so you end up with a master set of photos and videos.

Photo & Video Master Set $80 per device 

  • Copy all the photos & videos from the device's Photo App and folders
  • Remove all the duplicates resulting in a master set
** an iCloud or DropBox account is considered a device
