I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and received some great gifts. Before you toss out those boxes and papers that you received with your new tech gadgets, did you remember to register your new gifts? It is important to register ALL of your tech gadgets with the manufacture for two reasons.
Reason #1 - If anything happens to your device(s) you will be covered from a few as 30 days all the way up to one year to have your device repaired for FREE (not including physical or liquid damage) Reason #2 - Any defect or recalls that are involved with your device you will be notified by the manufacturer in most cases.
Take the time to go online and register your new devices now to save yourself both time and money in the event something should happen to your device. I recently had a client who had an issue with her MacBook Pro with a keyboard issue. I provided her with an estimate for the keyboard replacement and labor which was approximately over $100. I also checked on the warranty status of her device and found that it was 6 days from expiring. I took the device to the Apple Genius Bar and since it was under warranty they completed the repairs for FREE!! Although I would have loved to have charged for the repair it was great to save my client money.
